Say Cheese

This is what I got for trying to take a quick photo of the kids for Mr. Hot's Father's Day gift (a nice framed photo of the kids for his desk at work). I put it off to the very last minute, as in I was trying to get it done and in the frame before he got out of the shower. Stupid me.
Okay, guys, we need a few more smiles here. We want daddy to think you are HAPPY children, right?
Um, that's taking it just a bit too far, don't you think Sweet Terror? And mommy picked a bad angle on this one.

MONSTER MAN!!!! Put those hands down! (Thinking in my head, "He is so stinkin' cute!")

Ok, daddy is turning off the water so this will have to do. Thanks guys, I owe you one!

I'm a last minute picture taker too. But yours turned out really well. I bet he loved them. I think the thumbs up one is priceless!

I forgot to mention yesterday that I love your blog title. It caught my attention immediately. I too am an Ice cream-aholic. In fact last nights was mint choc. chip.

i have the exact same problem when i try to take a picture of my brood. except add the plastered-on fake smile on my oldest. yikes! i'm sure mr. hotness loved the photo, even if it wasn't everyone's best possible smile.

Oh my! Too funny. Your kids - they're adorable. :)

College - I'm 40 now and just going back. One little class at a time, online. I wish I had done this sooner. One class at a time is manageable. Of course I'll probably graduate in about 10 years ...

Tama said...

LOL! Ahhhhh taking family pictures is so much fun.

Amber said...

LOOOOOOOVE all the different shots and the darling personalities of your darlins. :-)

Sea Star said...

I love digital cameras. I take so many shots and catch so many of those great moments that really show personality.

Trying to get 4 kids to all look at the camera at the same time is quite a feat! I think they turned out lovely. What cute kids!

Shannon said...

What a beautiful family! I love the 3rd picture ( :

Annie said...

I don't know...I kinda liked the funny ones! LOL.

Catherine said...

CUTE. With four kids, I feel your pain. Trying to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time without blinking/turning/making bunny ears on the person next to them... it's tough stuff. :)

Sonja said...

You kids are SO darling! It must be all that in utero ice cream. :)

No matter how much I plan for a family picture I can not get all my kids to pose or even look in the same direction.

Awesome. I couldn't hold in the laughter after the last picture. I miss your kids.
