And anyway, I love to take pics of my kids-esp. all of them together. It is a real treat for me. It brings my view into focus-on what really matters. When I see those pics, no matter what they may bring-silliness, craziness, madness or dullness...it does not matter. B/c these are our blessings. Our little treasures.
Each of our children has their own personality and it truly shines through when I take a bunch of the same pictures one click after another! I love love LOVE it!!! :)
I *tried* to train them to smile those nice smiles where you can see their teeth and they actually smile :) Not those 'smiles' where you can see teeth but they look like they are sporting some new evil teeth look at you! haaa :) I also *tried* to make sure that they knew when it was time to smile to do just that and then hold that smile so I could take click after click of pictures. I still wondered, though, how this would pan out.
I really enjoy reviewing the pics and laugh at each one as they are so different and so unique in each of their own special way!
I set the kidos all up, with the help of my adoring husband-he insisted oldest to youngest :). And I told them to smile as my hubby acted goofey behind me. The other people at the lake/park were looking at us and I am sure either laughing at us or reminisicing of their younger days doing just the same thing. It was quite the sight, let me tell you! :)
And off I went with the camera.
...And then it happened.
My batteried DIED! and I had NO extra batteries on me!!!
I guess there will only be a few to choose from this year and I hope at least one is halfway decent!!!
Here are some pics of where we were and some diff. shots before my camera died....
