I try.... I really do!!

I LOVE pictures, love pictures of my children. I have taken the twins to get their pictures taken 1 time. We haven't had a family picture taken in 4 or 5 years. WHY? Do you know how hard it is to get four kids to look at the camera and give a decent smile at the same time- almost impossible. Then throw in 2 adults who are worried about what the 4 kids are doing, and.... it seems like it is no use. I have tried mulitple times, and this is one of the best we've got. I will keep trying.

Call me up, we can try a photo shoot!

Amen sister!! We just took family pics last week and I almost had a mental breakdown. Steve finally just told me I have too high of expectations. If I lower them, then I won't be so disappointed. I suppose he's right. What do we expect from little children... Anyway, I think it's adorable, and they aren't crying so that's a plus. Good job!! Merry Christmas!!

You really should have Li take some. Or try, at least. She's really great at managing crazy kiddos and getting cute shots regardless.

Her website: http://www.photographybyli.com/

Her prices (which are super cheap- for now, anyway): http://www.photographybyli.com/2009/04/pricing.html

And sample pics:

I'm not really trying to "up" her business, but really- I think you'd like her stuff. We've only got ours taken with her once so far, but we're hooked. So long, JCPenny! :)

PS. I also love that pic. Your kiddos are cuties.

Hey Linda, I was looking on here and thought I commented, but I didn't. I love this picture. All of them are adorable and growing up so fast! We didn't do a family picture this year either. Just didn't have time. Thanks for thinking of me. I've been thinking of you too.
We're, well I am, getting a little anxious about the next few months. The baby is due on the
17th of March, but I will probably have the c-section on the 10th. We have two months after the baby is born to get out of here, so that doesn't give us much time. I know four months sounds like a lot, but to me it sounds too fast.
We talked to a real estate agent, and hopefully can buy after the baby is born. We'll see. I'm stressing way bad, but life goes on. Miss you girl!!!
