Last night we were headed out and I realized we had hit a combination of three key things:
1. we were all looking presentable
2. we were not headed out in a hurry
3. it was not horribly hot outside
Put those three things together and its a darn near miracle in our family. So I grabbed my tripod and yelled for the troops. Honestly I thought Hubby would shut down "Operation Lets Get a Quick Family Picture Taken" when he saw my camera and tripod set up in the backyard. But much to my delight, not one grumble!
I knew I had less than three minutes to accomplish this project or... well I don't have to explain "or" as you probably have a husband and kids or know someone who does.
Three minutes later we have an up-to-date family photo!
And that- my friends- is the new picture at the top of my blog.
I did not say it was a great photo..
a CURRENT photo...
of everyone in my family--
with nary a finger in the nose!
Look at the Mousekins in the picture--(yes, go ahead and scroll up to the top of the blog)
Do they look like children who have a loving and supportive family? NO! They look like they have the world on their shoulders. Mickey and Minnie's sullen expressions look like they should be on the cover of a pamphlet that reads, "Unloved Orphans Need Your Help!
Please don't send us money or food. It would be embarrassing.
So I just wanted to clarify to anyone out there that our children are indeed loved, fed and cuddled in case you were wondering after seeing the updated picture on my blog!
And honestly..this is a step up from a photos shoot from last year. Do any of you remember This! ?
