Tuesday's Pictures

Okay, before you look at the following pictures, I want you to imagine something for me. Imagine my children in adorable coordinating outfits, Presley's hair done perfect with a bow that she leaves in the WHOLE time with a shirt that isn't too small and boyish looking. And Landon is actually looking at the camera and maybe even cracks a smile or two!! And of course we are also in some tropical location!! Okay, you can go ahead!!
The picture below is probably my favorite one in this post.

I love in the picture below how the other petal is falling.

Presley was really upset that she couldn't get the tangelo!!
I LOVE the picture below. Too bad it is a bit blurry!

This one is really blurry, but too cute to leave out!!

My sweet Kendall!!

OK - I am cracking up at your "imagine . . . ." I think we should boycott all the "beautiful blogs" where everyone looks perfect all the time!! My fave of these photos is Landon & Presley with the oranges - soooooo sweet!

I can tell you that all my kids with the exception of the first - Joey- have known the term "unisex" and understood that it meant wearing hand-me-downs from any and all siblings... I think Holly wore more boys gap than she did girl clothes!!! And... Abby will always ask, "Is this girl clothes or unisex"... strongly preferring the latter!

I agree with Ellie... I take a hundred pics to get 2 or 3 good ones... thank goodness for the digital camera! But... I have been wanting to make an "out take post" of all the rest... funky looks... fingers where they should not be... crossed eyes... legs crossed to avoid a much needed trip to the restroom (with the facial expression to match)... tears and more tears... and usually the back of the head as I am always too slow clicking the shutter button!

I think your pics are beautiful! Fun Fun hobby!


PS... Lilli is my first child that is NOT buying into the whole unisex idea... she throws a fit when anything is remotely boyish! She is coming around to blue jeans only becasue I force them on her. poor baby! NOT! :)

I love all the pictures. My Kate would prefer to wear "boy" clothes. No dresses on this girl that's for sure. She definately isn't a girly girl.
