Wordless Wednesday - Finally...A Family Picture!


I don't what it is like at your house but getting a family picture is like pulling teeth around here.  Dylan hates pictures, Gracie does to, I'm normally the one behind the camera - the only one who cooperates is Gabriel.  I did the unthinkable and had has all matching so we had to get a picture.  So above and below are the results of our adventure.  (I won't bore you with the other failures although some are pretty funny - we almost had to tie Gracie down for these.)

Pictures are hard to come by here too! I love the last shot. I don't think we've ever gotten one that good :)

Candy said...

I tried to get a family pic too and it didn't work but I see the 2nd pic you all look very cute!!

dogsmom said...

I am glad you did get at least one very nice photo. In the top one she looks perturbed - do we really have to? But you all are very photogenic.

That's a great shot! I love occasions to pull us into a family pic!

Rob said...

Great pictures. Family pictures are hard to come by. We don't have many ourselves.

Happy WW!

The first picture is adorable -- you can soooooo tell what she's thinking! lol

The "family" one is beautiful- - your children are GORGEOUS!

Sigh, I'm still waiting on my family Easter pic. It didn't work out on Sunday.

I'd say you were very successful in getting a great picture of your family. Everyone has such nice smiles. =D

They came out beautifully, you'd never know about all the fuss if it hadn't been for the other picture.

Annie said...

I love how color coordinated you all are! We NEVER match in my family, not even for easter or Christmas LOL

What a cute family :)

It is always hard to get a family picture. You did a great job.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Getting smiles on both of them must have been hard.

Frantic Holly said...

Turned out great!

That's a very good family picture! We received a Christmas photo card years ago from friends that showed their young daughter all dressed up in an angel costume. She obviously wasn't into it because her halo was bent, her gown was twisted, her face was blotchy from crying and she had snot on her lip. And the caption was "Peace on Earth!" Still makes me laugh just thinking about it. Sometimes the dramatic, disastrous photos are even better than the perfect ones!

Kim said...

Lovely picture! We too need to get a family picture. I am the one that always is behind the camera because I'm the one that hate to have her picture taken.

I'm up too!

I think the pictured turned out really great! I tried about 20-30 pictures just to get one of my boys...forget about getting us in it, too. I totally feel ya there.

Baba said...

It turned out beautifully!

Blessings Abound said...

There's no mistaking that they're brother and sister! I think they turned out wonderfully and you have a pair of cuties!:)

Although they were far from smiling in the shot of the two of them, I still think it is precious. Some of the best shots of my girls are when they are NOT smiling. Great family shot though!

Kas said...

PRECIOUS! Love it.

caite said...

GrammyMouse said...

the first one is great! save it for blackmail when she is older, LOL! Kids just don't want to sit still... I am not in any pic when the boys are little, I was behind the camera too! I love the great family pic you got, so the fight was worth it! Happy WW!
