Love... The Family Photo...

Ever since Rainee was a born, I've made sure to take an end of the year family photo. It's a tradition. But this photo op always comes with moans & groans from the peanut gallery... and I push through all their belly-aching, until I get the perfect photo... because you all know getting the perfect photo can be difficult... take after take... groan after groan... but somehow they survive and all is, once again, right with the world.

Well, this year was no exception.... the moans started the moment I said, "it's time for the family photo"... I put the tripod up... put them in their places...  they were ready (not happy, but ready) to sit there for as long as it took to get the shot mom would be happy with... you know the perfect family photo... with everyone smiling!!! But much to my surprise... & delight... we took the perfect family photo on the first shot... everyone was smiling... we all looked good... no one was blinking... I WAS SHOCKED!!! I was happy... as for the peanut gallery.... Steve & Rainee... they were happy as well, because the moment they heard it was a good photo... they bolted...they didn't wait... they were out of there... they didn't want me changing my mind... Why is that???? I don't understand why it's so hard to take a photo once a year together... but it is... but, this year, thankfully will be one to remember... there were no retakes. It was a one-take wonder!!! Whoo Hooo!!!

With the exception of our family photo shoot at Christmas time last month, I usually have willing participants. Not sure what was up with them last month! LOL

Yay for you that you got a cute photo on the first try. Cute page too!
