Kristina and kiddos came to visit last week and we decided to try to get the kids pictures taken all together for Grandma and Grandpa. We have never attempted this, thinking it would just be too hard getting all 5 kids to be looking the same direction, all smiling, not moving, not crying, not trying to walk off, you get the point! However, we were pleasantly surprised! Luke was the one that I was most worried about since he is the youngest at 18 months and in his own little world! He kept trying to walk over to me and crying a bit but I literally was sitting right next to him and once I could tell the photographer had their attention, I would lean over out of the range of the picture. It took some work but wasn't too bad! Luckily we had a few poses to choose from but decided on this one...and as you can imagine Grandma and Grandpa LOVED it!
We also had Jacob and Luke's picture taken a few months ago with their other cousin, Emily (Rhonda's little girl). She is 4 months younger than Luke and boy was it tough! Jacob did great but Luke and Emily were all over the place. Luke had fallen and hit his head right as we got there so he wasn't in the best of moods. We managed to get one good group picture where Luke wasn't crying, on the verge, but not crying. We framed these and gave them to Jim's mom and dad for Mother and Father's Day. They loved them!
Here are a few other poses they took just of the boys
