Family pictures!





I thought it was time for a family photo shoot since we didn't have one with Millie yet. What family one do you like the best??

I am not sure why it is perfect weather until I schedule pictures. Last year it turned into a huge blizzard during our winter family pictures, this year I will let the first picture of Millie and I explain it all.

Why does it get so frustrating? The shirts I originally had I didn't bother trying on the boys first or I would have seen that they needed to be washed due to the fact that they looked like night gowns, so my mom and I ran to Walmart of all places and luckily found shirts that matched perfectly, I am trying to prevent the kids from spilling pizza on their shirts, Jake wants the blue shirt not the red and starts with the meltdown, Millie finally falls asleep after a much needed nap right when we are walking out the door, I have anxiety because we just drove an hour in two separate cars and now it's looking like our little photo shoot is not going to happen, finally when it starts to clear up the light is almost gone and everyone is taking their sweet time walking out to the car, school is starting and this will be the only weekend it will work. I felt like I wanted to scream, and then Brad started to get frustrated at me being frustrated so then I got mad because I thought he was mad at me.... Oh boy, then you have to smile and pretend everyone is happy and life is perfect. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me? Maybe it's just when you have this many people you are trying to put in a picture? Needless to say I got over everything.... Because it's usually me not anyone else...Sorry:(

We had a few setbacks like the biggest wind storm I have seen in a long time... Knocking out all of the power in Payson, but I think we still managed to capture a few keepers.....Enjoy!

I'm sorry, but I will need an 8x10 of that first picture for our house! I'm laughing hysterically and Eliza keeps asking to see the "crazy picture" again. Hilarious!

Of course that whole scenario sounds like exactly the thing that would happen to me. Love it. I like the one with you all grouped together in front of the doorway...but they are all super cute.

I love the one of you sitting down but I also love the one of you and brad kissing. Very sweet. I remember just trying to get Rob's girls ready for pictures and also Mila - your family is bigger so imagine it's a huge task. They turned out great!

Maybe that's a new hairdo in the first picture:)
