Family Picture Fun

This year we decided to save money and 
just have a friend take our family pictures for Christmas cards.

It sounded like a really good idea.
I mean we are saving money here.

We got a few kinda okay pictures...
This one was early on when we were all still speaking to each other.
Not too bad...
AJ only looks like he is in minor pain...
Hanging in there...
Starting to get distracted...
but still smiling...
Really not sure what AJ's face is doing here...
or what they are all looking at.
And those cute pictures with the frame you see on pinterest.
Not as easy as they look...
Seconds before the frame fell forward, 
and I nearly threw the damn thing in the lake.
Because you can only tell a 3 year old and a 6 year old to just.hold.the.frame.and.smile
about 15 times before you just have to walk away.
Focus people.
Focus.
On.the.camera.
Focus.on.the.camera.
 5 out of 5 looking in the same direction for a nano second.
and then oh a leaf.
really AJ?!
Stop looking at the leaf and look.at.the.damn.camera.
and then ADD claimed Brody...and Abby...
and Andy....seriously Andy?!
Lovely smile Abby.
That face says Merry Christmas all over it.
What the hell is happening in this picture?
Abby looks possessed in this one.
Fabulous.
I don't even want to know what she is plotting in this one.
Open.your.eyes.Andy.
 
At this point I about had a nervous breakdown.
Apparently that's the face I make right before I lose all sense of sanity
and start screaming at my family.

 Our Christmas cards are going to rock this year. 
Just wait.

Imperfect is the new perfect. I love them. I think you need to do an outtakes page in an album. What a memory!
