Appreciate these please

3 adults
7 kids
2 photography sittings

What were we thinking?

Please appreciate these pictures. They were pure h*ll to get. Seriously.

Heather and Jody came for a quick visit on their way to Lake Powell. They were only here for a few days and we had much to celebrate. My Grandmas birthday, Brielle's Birthday and Breje's birthday. My mom really wanted to squeeze in the yearly grandkids photo too.

So Saturday morning we woke up and got the kids as cute as possible in their clean new clothes and headed to Kiddie Kandids. Of course there was a wait, so we let the kids burn some energy running through the mall hallways. If you were there, I'm sorry. They were out of control! Finally they got there pictures done, and actually did really well. All smiles, no tantrums, darling pictures. Success, or so we thought.

We sat down to view the pictures and the photographer totally screwed up, there was a curtain in a picture and to zoom away from it we would have to chop Trayson face off or half of Kutter. And hey, we like those 2 boys.

So we had to schedule a retake photo for later. Ugh.

So we went to a birthday lunch for everyone and just prayed no one would spill, and then drug them all back to kiddie kandids where the tantrums were plentiful.

I think they all turned out pretty cute, but please I ask you once again, appreciate these pictures. Don't mind the carpet being in them, they did edit that out in the prints we got.





I also wanted to wish a happy birthday to Grandma, Brielle, and Breje. I am so bummed I didn't get any pictures of the party. Brielle dug into her cake and I swear she almost ate the whole thing! It was great to all be together for a little while this weekend, and I always love to watch Adyson and Kutter play. They are seriously inseparable. BFFS.

One more thing. This weekend I asked Adyson what she wanted to be when she grows up, and she said a mom, so she can get mad. The mother of the year award goes too....

I love the last remark from Adyson! So funny. Very cute pic's and I can totally appreciate them. We have tried family pic's three times in the past 6 months and still haven't got a good one. Not one!

I love the pic of your girls. It is darling!

Macy likes to tell me she can't wait until she's the mom. So she can give herself whatever she wants. I tell her, you just wait...

I hate picture day, they turned out really cute though. Erin and her family are being taken care of by the ward. My mom and step dad are probably going to drive a motor home out to get them, if the doctor gives the okay for Erin to travel. the tornado that ripped apart their house killed 7 people. one was a lady right up their street.

Pictures can be such a stressful thing sometimes. That's too bad that you got a crappy photographer to begin with. They turned out cute though!

I think the pics turned out great. They can sure be a fun thing can't they? Especially when you had a dumb photographer. I like them though :)

hi haylee
cute family! It has been a while since I have seen you, hope things are well for you! I can't wait to have my baby, but the idea of having a boy is scaring me! Wish me luck!

Wow seven kids, sitting and smiling two times in one day! Who can contest there no such thing as miracles. So funny that Travis knows my sister. I didn't even notice her comment on your blog, till you mentioned it. That must have happened during my computer meltdown. I can't believe Chris yelled at you over my blogging addiction. I admit it was a little intense for a while when I first discovered blogging, but I have hardly had time lately. We really should hang out sometime when we get back from our trip. Let the girls ride their bikes or something.

Matt & Jill said...

Wow you get an award. I hate pictures. I need to go this week. I hate the wait that is the worst! Then they didn't turn out!!! I hope they gave you a huge discount! Allie always tells me how mean I am and I think if you want to see mean . . .
How do you move your private post up? You have right? That must be advanced blogging. I can't figure that out.
