I needed a new family picture so I asked my parents if they would help us out with that (lots cheaper and they have lots more patience for six kids who don't always want to cooperate). So, on a Sunday after church (not the best plan as the kids were already tired of being good) we got together at their house to try our luck.
Disclaimer: I haven't cleaned these up yet because, lets be honest, it's the holidays and I just haven't gotten to is yet...but I still think they are fun so I am going to share anyway.
Getting all six children to look at the camera at the same time and make non-dorky faces is next to impossible, but sometimes we come pretty close.
There is just something about daddys and daughters...love those guys!
Ellie was pretty much uncooperative the whole time, but at least she didn't scream the entire session (just half of it...we'll keep the incriminating evidence to ourselves though).
Even if we can't afford a professional photographer, I still love having family pictures scattered around the house to remind us of good times and happy memories together. We are so very blessed.
And the piece de resistance...my very favorite picture of all...the real true honest to goodness DeMoux family. I think I'll blow this one up for the family room. That should keep us smiling for a while.
Thanks, Mom, for all you do to help us out and for your time and especially your patience. I think you do a great job and we are very very grateful.
I love my family!
