The Kids…

When taking pictures of the kids as a group…

I take what I can get.

The good, the bad… the silly and all around unplanned.

My girls like laughing… can’t say that I blame them.

At least they are all LOOKING at the camera.

Most of the “planned”  pictures I have taken never come out exactly as I envisioned them too… but I always find reasons to smile when I see the final “product”.

Game Time!

Giggle with me… won’t you?

My…”current condition”… is not affording me sleep…

 

Let’s just say it’s not happening.

So early morning hours  have lead to time spent on THIS WEBSITE  and scrolling through photos (both recent and old.)

 

This picture just gets me giggling…

Getting a good picture of all of the kids together is just not as easy as it should be.  Why is that? Getting good ones by themselves is cake… right?

 

SERIOUSLY JUST SMILE FOR THE STINKIN CAMERA!!!! Winking smile 

But instead this is what I get…

DSC_0660.JPG

 

I think this shot makes me laugh mostly because it truly captures a wealth of unspoken words about each of our kids personalities…

Rebekah… a constant giggle box! And in a phase where she is trying out a plethora of “smile styles.”

Micah… silly, and with a complete mind of his own. “What? You want me to actually look at the camera and smile?!? HA! Keep waiting, folks!”

Anna… “Ok, people…. I’m reaching my limit.”Winking smile
