Wordless Wednesday – Trying to get a shot of all of us…

There is a reason we don’t have more shots of Susan and me with all four of our kids.

Now, I have so much more empathy for my parents when they were trying to get family photos of us growing up. There were four of us kids in our family and we all dreaded the annual family photo. (The outtakes are hilarious to look at now though!)

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

    LOVE the picture! You girls are gorgeous! You look identical. Are you? I have twins who are 6 months old and I have been asked that question about a million times, so I guess you’ve probably been asked about 20 million. Anyway, great photo! Thanks for all you do!

    Great photo! I know what you mean about getting lots of kids to smile…at the same time with OPEN eyes~ we have 5 kids and family photos are hilarious!!!!!!

    There are three times we attempt family photos: Christmas, Easter and at the beach in the summer. These are the only times I’m concerned my children might need therapy ’cause I’m so manic about it (which doesn’t help a bit).

    This shot of y’all? STINKIN’ ADORABLE! It’s just “life” bein’ lived, ya know?

    So wish Susan was making a stop in Chattanooga on her way to Atlanta; OR that I was still living in Atlanta…I’d show her the town and I’m pretty sure we’d never stop talking blawg stuff!

    Susan if you check in, you’ve gotta eat at The Varsity downtown….it’s an institution!

    Those shots are not easy – you did pretty well. At least you can see everyone’s head! Nice job – they’re adorable!!

    HILARIOUS!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Glad my family is not the only family that takes pictures like that….but hey at least they are REAL, right??!! :) Have a great day y’all!

    Looks just like our family shots. In the last one, my niece is leaning back, and it looks like she doesn’t have a head. Oh, well. Someone has to sacrifice, right?

    Ummmm, now you know what it’s like for me to get all my kiddos together for a photo!! Four girls age 3 and under…. just like herding cats, I like to think.

    I have SO many of these pictures. I thought it was bad with just 2, but adding a third is utter mayhem. I find it interesting that it’s our middle one who absolutely HATES it when the camera comes out.

    That’s a great shot. So real! LOL. It takes me a lot of time to get a shot of myself and my four too. When taking pics of the kids a sense of humor is always necessary.

    We go through the same ordeal every Christmas with our four boys. But that’s okay…they’re not perfect in real life, so why should they be perfect in their pictures? The silly ones are always good for a laugh.
