Attention Grandparents: Photos Ahead

It has come to my attention that I haven't been posting nearly enough pictures of the kids lately, so today I aim to remedy that:

Grace is growing out her hair so she can be like one of her friends at school. The only downside is, her friend's mom is really good at braids and pigtails, and her own mother is not so gifted. Did you notice the phantom hand in this photo? Freaky.

Here she is doing her sloth imitation.

Katie does not smile for pictures. This has been going on for over a year now; she'll be smiling and laughing and then when I point the camera at her, she pulls the old 'look off to the side and give a straight face' trick. I'm not sure why this is.

The other night, though, I finally got her:

Then LAUGHING! Dazzled by the flash!

I also have another child, who for some reason isn't in any of the recent photos I have taken, except for this kinda lousy one, where you can't really see him, but he's digging up our little garden plot.

Hopefully soon I will get an actual photo of Tommy's face. Poor middle child.


  1. your kiddos are adorable...yes more pics!!

    Hey my Thursday Thirteen this week is 13 Blog Awards for Bloggy Goodness, and um yeah...there is a little L O V E waiting for you. come and get it!

  2. What! You mean Tommy doesn't run into the room the moment you get the camera out to take a picture of anyone else and say "Take me! Take one of me! Lemme see! Lemme see! Can you put it on the computer?"

    There will never be a photo session in this home that doesn't include pictures of Ben.

    I have always been awful at hair styles. Just getting Clara's bows to look cute is a feat for me. Poor unstyled children.

    Cute pics!

  3. Oh, they are adorable! And Katie has a beautiful smile. :)

  4. Great photos! cutie pies.

    For some reason I love pictures of children from behind. They aren't expecting the photo, are usually just being themselves and are so natural. With face shots we often get focused on the cuteness of the face, but with shots of their back turned to you, you get to see them in action.

    I once blew up and framed a photo of my friends little boy when he was about 2 feeding some ducks. You can't see his face, but his little chubby hand throwing food and his short legs standing on the pond banks are the focus. so cute.
    It is one of her favorite pictures of him.
