Persistence…isn’t working for me!

The big kids had school pictures yesterday. And I wanted a picture of all of them together. They looked so stinkin’ cute! I even put a really sweet dress on the getting-more-ornery-than-normal nineteen-month-old devil sweetie in pigtails!

Exhibit A: While trying to just a get a shot of the girls the fugitive S tries to escape again!


FINE then. Let’s try just the kids that are going to school. Fugitive C (aka Connor) is not really into this kind of thing.

Exhibit B:


And then the holy grail. I did get a decent one (I said decent—not great) shot of three of them. Which really is okay except that I have four. and I want four in the picture. Where did Fugitive S go?


Okay she’s back. BUT Fugitive C is getting ready to be naughty. And the photo model aka Shayne is “scratching an itch MOM! I can’t help it!”

Exhibit C:


Okay…another decent shot…except…Fugitive S is moving and Stormy (aka walking whirlwind) is making a weird face.


And again…more funny faces and movement and not looking. AAAACCCCKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the last exhibit…Fugitive S is done.  Fugitive C isn’t looking at all anymore. The whirlwind is still making weird faces.

Okay then…will I continue in this endeavor of mine to get a great shot of all of my kids.


Aren’t you relieved?
