Getting a family picture is hard work. First we have John who refuses to smile in pictures (personally I think that he's afraid that if he smiles it might occur on a regular basis and he has a great looking smile), then we have Little N who has recently decided that closing or almost closing his eyes all the way makes for a good picture and finally we have Little M who sometimes gives me a great big smile but is slowly taking after his dad. I get distracted with making sure that everyone is looking at the camera, or I blink or give to big of a smile! Then there is the weather which wasn't helping us this week and I wanted to get our picture done and out of the way, sadly it was raining the day I had someone around to help take the picture. But here are some of my favorite outtakes that didn't make it on the Christmas card.
