This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

A picture is worth.....

It's picture season again!! Starting with Pumpkin Patches into Thanksgiving right through Christmas I see so many blogs that display the "kids look here and smile so cute and perfect because mommy is going to take a picture of you" award winning photos!
I think I get so caught up in demanding that my kids all look in the same direction and smile without the faked forced smiles that I get flustered and then they get flustered and it does not work. I end up in a sweat and they end up in tears.

Here is our pumpkin patch attempts....

Stay tuned for our Thanksgiving and Christmas photo shoots... or "just smile once please" as I like to say!!

You will all get a good laugh at these one day, even if they don't appreciate the pictures now! They are super cute!

OK...beginning to understand why you don't's just too stressful getting to that point!!
Did anyone finally get a pumpkin?
Luv the pics.

Were you at Lombardi Ranch? We were there last weekend with our kids. I haven't even really looked at them yet, but I think they are bad, too. Oh well!!!

these are real, Sis! They are in focus, you got a pumpkin in the background and all 4 kids are accounted for, I think you did a great job.
