We had our family picture taken professionally this evening. Getting children ready to take family pictures should probably be an Olympic sport. It is not them, it is ME. I want it to be perfect. The photographer was great and worked well with the kids. Of course, George was up to her antics and pretended to have never met another human before. The lady tried everything to get her to smile. She said, "Is she shy?" "Nope. It is ALL a game with George."
She took our picture and headed home. I brought our camera along to take a few of my own. Of course, George showed up. She wouldn't stop smiling, cheese was everywhere. Yep. It was her show. One of these things is not like the others.

Damaris does NOT have time for such immaturity by her older sister. Appalling.


  1. Omygosh! Stunning! Who took them? I loooove that first one. So great. You just reminded me that I really want new family pictures. You are a beautiful family.

  2. It is UNFAIR how many amazing pictures you get of your family, and with you guys in them, even! I can't remember the last time we had a whole family photo. I'm sure it's missing at least a couple kids, whenever it was.

    Is the new header a professional shot, or are these all ones you got with your own camera? Such a beautiful crew!

    1. Thanks, Staci. I haven't seen the professional shots yet. This was from our camera at Wilderness Ridge. We asked a lady walking by to take a pic.

  3. Beautiful family pictures!!

  4. Absolutely DARLING! I was SO worried yesterday when I went to see your post and it wouldn't let me in! I have to tell you, I LOVE your blog and watching you with your growing family. You have been a true inspiration to me!
    Keep your pictures and stories coming. I happily await each day to see what you all have been doing!

    God Bless.

  5. What a hoot! I need to learn how you take such great photos of your family that they capture their little personalities so well.

  6. LINDSAY! I cannot stop staring at your new family photo - what a stunning crew ya'll make! And it's even better knowing how amazing you and John are... best team award goes to you guys!

  7. Haaaaaa Clair I would have her live with me. Love the pics Linny.
