(Not so) Wordless Wednesday!

When I ask Jeff what he wants for his birthday every year, he always asks for pictures of me and the kids. Because I'm a total procrastinator, I don't have time to get pictures of all of us done before his bday arrives, so I've been trying to get a decent shot of me and the kids. Of course I can't ask him to help because it's for his birthday, so they all involve me holding the camera out like a crazy person and then trying to get the kids to look at the lens, not the viewfinder out to the side. ( Don't even bring up using the timer. We tried that. I did not go well.) After lots of trying the past couple of days, this is what we've ended up with. I don't know that I love any of them, but one of them will have to do. Thank goodness for Shutterfly and their one hour photo processing that you can pick up at Target. I love Ant's face in the last one. He was done by that point. :-)

I think they're all great! My kids go crazy when they can see themselves in the viewfinder. It's fun, but not always conducive to great photos. I really like yours...you all have beautiful eyes!
