Family Pictures!

Well, I thought I would post a couple of these pictures. We had some pictures taken of our family. The main goal was to get a great one for the Christmas card. It was freezing! We had to take our coats off to take the picture, and then hurry and put them on again in between. I can't even tell you how many pictures we had taken and not one of them turned out. I actually love this picture of John and I, but thought it might be a little confusing if we sent out a picture of just the two of us! :)
Would it be to much to ask to have everyone look at the camera and smile! When I look at this picture it gives me a little dose of reality. Does the perfect picture even exist? Well, It was worth a try. Next time we attempt I'll try to schedule an appointment when it's at least above 20 degrees!

This is the happiest Ellie looked the entire afternoon! I think we were close to the line of child abuse. Oh, what I would do for a darling family picture!

Oh my, how I love and miss you all. The picture of you and John is so great. I even love the one where Paige is trying to get away. There are no perfect pictures... just like people...just keep a sense of humor and say "Oh well, next year!" Mom

The picture of you and John is gorgeous! I love it. What a cute family you are! I took my kiddies to get their pictures taken yesterday and Sophie cried the whole time. It was horrible. One of these days everyone will cooperate!

Classic! I think that everyone goes through that. I still think they turned out great. I can't believe how big the girls are getting.

I feel your frustration. Picture taking with our family is pretty much a disaster. I think I got my Christmas wish early when my boys actually smiled at the same time, at the camera and I didn't have a wanky eye and Sean's eyes were fully open when we took our Christams picture. But no matter what, your pictures will always be adorable because your girls are so dang precious :) Colton still misses Ellie!
