In reality, I think maybe I am trying to grasp at some little bitty fragment of normalcy by making this tradition of yearly family portraits happen. As if I needed any more insanity, right?
Yearly family portraits aren't exactly our family tradition. We have omitted any family portraits for more than two years. Yikes!
But here we are, we MADE it happen!
Of course, there was the drama of getting everyone out the door intact and in somewhat coordinating outfits. But we Did it, and now we Have family pictures. (don't ask it it was worth it for at least a couple years) :-)
Lil' Lex couldn't figure out why she had to keep smiling for this crazy person. The Daddy even bribed the baby to sit still with Skittles from a vending machine. Gasp!
We smile, the lights flash and history is recorded on glossy paper. The photographer gushes about what a beautiful and perfect family we are. I just smile and swallow hard, and wish it were that easy.
I love these guys to death!
As you can see, even Skittles aren't enough anymore!
So we ended with kisses and hugs with the awesome Daddy!
