Family Pictures

My family rarely sits down and takes a family picture. Usually it's only once a year for our Christmas cards but our Nana told us all she wanted for her birthday was a picture of our family(we don't live near each other :(
It took us a few times to get it right but it was allot of fun! I love being apart of such an awesome family!

This was our best one! It's hard to take a picture of 7 people with a 3 year old.

Individuals...I like theses. We thought we would go ahead since we were out there.

Cutest little boy!
Handsome :D
She's so pretty. My best friend.
And me...

I know exactly what you mean Lydia. Coming from a family as the size of your own, Christmas pictures are hard to make. Nevertheless, they are a lot of fun, because with each picture someone will make a funny face. Those are some really pretty pictures! It takes us about 2 hours! Then in the end, we all just laugh because it's unbelieveable how long it took.

One year we decided to take our picture outside in the snow because we were frustrated from the night before with being all formal and sitting in front of the Christmas tree. We were just about to go some where when we got the idea to head on to our deck and pose for a family picture. It just started to snow, and what would you know, it was the best picture! It took only 5 minutes, and it was perfect! Sometimes the spur of the moment pictures are the best! :)

Lydia, Hi! This is Jennifer Stanford. I was wondering if you and/or Naomi might be interested in a babysitting job on Mondays from 9 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. I believe it will pay about $10/hour.

We are in need of babysitters at our Classical Conversations meetings on Mondays this school year. They will be held at Fla. Blvd. Baptist Church.

Let me know if you or someone else may be interested. Two people can ride with me in my van. Thanks! I really enjoy your blog, by the way.

Thanks, and that must have been so cool to take a picture in the snow! We live really far south and it has snowed twice(the first time it melted as soon as it touched the ground. The second time was last year it lasted one day and was about three inches at our house! lol)
Anyway, I'm glad you got such a good picture. It had to be 100 degrees yesterday because we were melting.:)
