My kids daily dose of torture





Family photos gone wrong! (but still cute)



Don't these kids look miserable? You should have seen their faces before we started. They were threatening mutiny!

I love them! You are so talented. Where did you take them at? Before our pictures I had to lay down the law too. I pretty much told them that I know they didn't want to, but they were doing it anyway, so deal with it! I was mostly talking to Kelly!

I love those photos. Sidney is so cute. I love her voice. I look at her and imagine her talking and it makes me smile.

I love candid shots. I think they are much better than something posed. Your kids are so cute!

Really. Candids are far funner to look at than the perfect smiley family - though that does have its place - I'm tempted to do real life pictures of the kids for Christmas cards. 6 scraggly mismatched kids all on the messy counter fighting to decorate the same cookie. That's what's really going on at Christmas time.

Aundrea- the pics were taken in our little neighborhood green space. It is so beautiful out there right now.

Jana-so not unlike the lone jack o' lantern, you only let your children decorate one cookie?

I l ove these pictures. Boston is almost 12 years old and is still so stinkin' cute. I love imaging Sid's voice when I see her pictures, and Mason, always the goofball making everyone else laugh.

Yes, they decorate the single family cookie and on Christmas morning we all nibble on it while each child opens their one present of a shiny silver tin cup.

I love your kids. Cute pics. I think if you were here I'd make you come take my fam's. I was looking at the engagement pics you took of Steve and I. I love them.

Can't wait to see what's on your cards this year.

Ok Mer, so where did you go?

megan said...

ok Mer I need ideas from you... What do you and Chris want for Christmas?

MLL said...

Mer, these pics make me so sad that I don't know your kids. These look alot like the lady Sheri posted a link to on her blog. Your family is awesome, Chica. And you are very talented. i'm a firm believer in the artistic eye, rather than the formal and stagnant. Miss you.
