all for a picture.

I have come to realize, that I am so busy taking every ones pictures that my own children don't seem to have any "professional" pictures of themselves.

There are many reasons for this:
- They really don't like the camera any more (it's sort of their enemy)
- I am tired of trying
- My silly antics don't work on them
- I am always around them so their cuteness wears off and I forget they need their pictures taken.

I tried desperately to take Levi's 2-year old pictures the other day with him sitting in front of a white backdrop.... it didn't happen, not even close. This is what we ended up getting instead:

Bribing with licorice.

Kate showing Levi how it's done.

Levi thinking I'm hilarious for even trying this.

Dad jumping in to try to keep him still, and the other kiddos joining in on the fun.

Me conceding and giving Chad the camera so my kids remember mom was around.

YOu have such a beautiful family. I'm so glad you jumped in a picture--moms are never in pictures!

Levi is the cutest thing and his picture (with dad's shirt as a backdrop) turned out great!
