Our REAL family photo

Because it was the Sunday before Christmas and because everyone in the family just happened to be wearing red (which was completely and 100% planned, by the way), we took some time before worship to snap a few family pictures.

Below is the picture I would normally show:

However, I am playing along with The Happy Housewife today and going to also show your our REAL family photo...

the one that has a four year old attempting to figure out how to pose naturally with a present

the one that has a two year old mad over the fact we are taking pictures

the one that shows the strain on The Husband's face as he attempts to look relaxed despite the fact he just jumped from behind the camera to his spot on the floor before the timer snapped the picture

the one where I am smiling just a bit too eagerly.

Gotta love the surly 2 year old. I think we have one in every one of our family pictures!

You have a beautiful family!

I loved your willingness to share the not so pleasant with the pleasant! I have Santa pics with not so happy child, then happy child. The second one made it on the Christmas card:-)

Too cute! My kids always hold things over their face in photos too!

That is too funny. E's hair is adorable. Her little girl bob really looks cute on her.
