Listed on my Little Guy's school supply list was "family picture". Hmmm. You would think that we would have one. I put it off for weeks and finally tried to arrange for my Aunt to come over and take our picture. That didn't work out so finally I set the timer on my small 6 year old Sony and made everyone get on the couch. This is what I got. I kind of like it. It is just the way we are. I'm in sweats and a college T-shirt, my Hubby has his clothes on to run and one of the kids is crying. I started to send it in and then on Labor Day my Aunt used the same pitiful Sony to take this one:
I had to do a lot of editing to get it to even look this good. I like the way she said "I took a good picture" when I showed her later. There was 10 feet of space above us in the original picture. I'm wearing another college t-shirt, however, the kids weren't crying so I consider it a big success despite the way my hair looks. Those are flag stickers going across my Hubby's chest. Another big success when they aren't stuck to our be-hinds.
