Okay, so I do things a little late. Slow. Backwards. Call me what you will. I was sick at Christmas. Better late than never, right? At least, that's what we procrastinators tell ourselves to feel better about life.
It was a week after New Year's. I still hadn't taken the Christmas photo. Looked like it wasn't going to happen for the whole family. And definitely not in dress clothes. I had to do SOMETHING.
So I texted all of my children, told them we were taking our Christmas photo, to get their butts downstairs. What you are about to witness is the result of hormones and humor. Let the record show that Maybelline was in no mood to have her picture taken.
Oh my. Not at all what I had in mind.
Hmm. Better. But not a genuine smile.
Alrighty then! No more comments about the smile. Got it.
No. We're NOT done yet. Maybe it's time to try something different.
Sombreros! That'll do the trick!
Yeeeaaaah. Again with that cheesy smile. Huh.
Oatmeal Head is pushing it. The Queen is not amused.
Definitely not liking the sombreros - or her brothers
Our only real smile - hooray!
Aaaaand she's done
Trying to convince a 17 year old girl that this is the right time to take family photos - next to impossible.
Until I write again ...
