Picture taking with kids is definitely an endeavor. And while it is now documented for history that my children are adorable, it is also plain for everyone to see that they are not always the most cooperative.
The clan. You will also notice Miles' tiger lovey that had to be present in the picture.
The cousins. And Miles' blanket.
And then Miles was done.
Like I said, I know they're adorable.
But also not cooperative. Beckett decided this was the perfect moment to pull Levi's hair.
And then Levi decided it was time to put his hands in front of his face as soon as Beckett stopped.
Miles had to be given chocolates to stay in the pictures.
A reminder that he's adorable to make up for all of the trouble.
Levi's missing a few teeth this year.
My stubborn boy.
Grandma and Oo-Oo with the hooligans.
And yes, popsicles were needed to keep this show going.
My Mom and Dad.
My Mom and my Granny.
My best friend of course.
Scout and Levi were the only ones enjoying getting their pictures taken.
These two love each other.
All jokes aside, I love these pictures. Even though there's something strange going on in most of the shots, that's okay. Yeah, it would be great if all of my children would sit still, look at the camera, and smile all at the same time, but that's not us right now. These capture our family as we are this year, with a bunch of wiggling crazy kids. People tell me that someday we will miss their chaos, and for now I'll choose to believe them.
