school pics... behind the scenes...

So, since i accidentally posted twice yesterday, i'll make it a picture post today & try not to blather on too long. Cai looked at this picture & said, "Our family looks small..."


Yeh, this was actually the last picture that i took in our photo session that day. In between shots that i didn't post on my blog (for some reason they all turned out black except this one...) Mollen was picking her nose & threatening to wipe it on everyone... Gage was trying to escape from Peyton and so she has shoved his mouth full of chocolate chips to keep him happy & Sloanie is recovering from Mollen having (playfully?) kicked her in the shins... Andrea - if you're reading this, you are my hero - your pictures always look so delicious...


"Just take the dang picture, mom"

This was the only one that didn't have Gage's head in the frame. He was FURIOUS that i removed him from the special chair & so he was being a tiny tyrant & trying to dethrone Cai. Made for a nice, natural smile though i say, so as they say, "it's an ill wind that doesn't blow *some* good..."


We had to take 2 of Sloanie - this one is my favourite because she's wearing her dirty ol' hat. It's her trademark.



Peyton tried to clip this tie on Gage who was already waaaaaayyyyyy overdue for his nap. Let's just say that didn't go over too well. When Peyton decided to wear the tie herself, i thought, "Why the heck not?"


i love how Charter was forced to wear a button down shirt. Peyton dressed him while Cairo did his hair. i made him take a bath. One day he will thank me. i can't wait to see the special wife that God has all picked out for Charter. i think she will have to be a girl who grew up with all brothers who needs a bunch of sisters :)



i also made mollen take a bath... but it didn't rinse out all the b.a.d.n.e.s.s... as you can tell by my comments on the first picture. & yet... i've been noticing her little fingers and her tiny reaching arms lately - she's still so wee & growing and learning and exploring.



& sweet mr. moo who was overdue for his nap & wouldn't give even one teeny smile - still looked sweet in the vest that he picked out of his drawer & insisted on wearing...

Oh, new little baby, this is the little sweet bit of chaos that is your family. We can't wait to meet you & add your smiling face to our group shot.

Me like :)
Cairo, I agree. Your family does look small...I think new little babe will fit in quite perfectly!

I love behind the scenes almost more than the photos! My pics only turn out when I go overboard on potty talk, goofy noises or embarrassing booty shakes. Genuine smiles always come at a price ;)

HI Did you have your son circumcised? If he;s different from dad, how does dad feel about it?

I love that you do school pictures. It's funny, when we were gearing up for this school year, I was thinking it'd be something we'd have to miss out on. Silly me!
