picture time!








Our pictures finally came in today and I got the disks to preview them. Oh what a "fun" night we had posing for the camera. And by fun, I don't mean, a rip, roaring good time. More like frustrating, and exhausting...draining me and Josh of every ounce of patience we possess! Why is it that when you want your kids to be on their best behavior and just simply smile nicely for the camera for a little while,
they act like you have had them out in the sun for days with no water or food, toys, treats....nuthin'! (even while you are popping
jelly beans in their mouth after every "cheese." Well, I don't know why.
Must be the ages. Might even be that their mother is always sticking the
camera in their faces telling them them to "say cheese"...which has totally
lost it's effect. Now they do as they are told...they say cheese. And that's it.
"Whoever said you had to smile when you say cheese?"
Well, whatever. Here are some of the better pictures.

We had them taken at Saltair, out at the "big rock"...the sand was kind of yucky and there were bugs everywhere, but so worth the scenery!

All of our children have a little demon child in them. It's their right to get out of hand every once in a while. Let me just tell you. We (me and you know who) watched his nephews the other night, If I had I gun I would have killed myself. They were satan's spawn's from hell!!! (don't ever tell ANYONE I said that) Yours, OMGosh no contest! so with your children, maybe one picture night of chaos to you,would be pure bliss for someone else! BYW I love little Belle's pic. and the boot in the right hand corner brings out the color in Belle's eyes!! JK I love ya meg
