Family Pictures

Ah yes, that time of year again to dress up the family drive to the mall and take your family photos. The girls all did very well. The pictures turned out so cute! And there is even a family photo that both my husband and I agreed on.

It's very hard to get a 2 year old to sit in a perfect position and smile so that you can take her picture. Sissy did very well considering but after one or two pictures she was done. Thankfully, the one she let us take of her by herself came out so cute!

You see the oddest things out and about while waiting for your pictures to be taken. The family ahead of us had a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. While the little girl was getting her pictures taken the boy was getting into a little mischief. Nothing serious just touching a light switch and opening a door that was a storage closet. But the mother made a threat I have never heard before. She kept telling him that if he didn't stop she was going to take off his shirt. I thought this was interesting and wondered what kind of punishment it was to have his shirt taken off. Finally, he crossed the point of no return and off came the shirt and this boy went berserk! He curled up at his dad's feet crying that he wanted his shirt back on. Back on it went and the tears stopped but I had never seen anything like it. As Pinky Dinky Doo would say, "That's something you don't see everyday."

After our pictures we wandered the mall waiting for them to upload to the store computers so we could make our selections. I think I dread this part more than anything. Of course the lady had to take so many photos of Blue Eyes that made it so hard to choose between them. And ballerina girl did so great in all of her pictures too. You just can't leave any out. Next time we get pictures done once they've taken one good one I'm saying STOP! Makes it easier at the end.

That shirt punishment is interesting. I wonder what sort of issues that boy will have later in life from having his clothing taken away as punishment?

My family picture this year was interesting- the kids smiled, but DH did not. :sigh:
