A Thousand Words Thursday – Achieving a Family Picture

Cheaper Than Therapy

I’ve been wanting to take an update picture of the four kids for a while.  The last one I have features JC at barely 2 months old and almost unrecognizable from the one-year-old JC.  I broke it to the kids that we were going to take some quick pictures outside (whether they like it or not) before the weather got any worse (which could happen in a day around here!).  They were less than enthused, but I soldiered on.  I finally got one I could deal with, maybe not exactly what I had hoped for, but not bad:

But getting a few shots I like, means getting plenty of others that are….well…

Actually, I STILL like them.  Maybe even more.

GREAT shots! Love um all! I remember once I snapped 76 pics and got ONE 'good' shot for the Christmas card. Lol. But going back and looking at the ones I didn't use? SO much better now. They are funny and memory filled.

They are all wonderful. I love your new look! Some of those not so "perfect" pictures are really the best!

Your children are just precious!

Some of the best pictures are those captured when they are just being kids!

Happy Thursday!

Mel- I love all the pictures! You will probably find that it is the duds that you treasure the most because those are the ones that truly show the kids' personalities. And you took the pictures just in time - the weather is yucky now!

Abby said...
