happy halloween weekend!

Photobucket


And now a little behind-the-scenes look at my attempt to get the three kids to pose together. FAIL!

Photobucket


Look above at the middle picture on the bottom row. Does Drew's body language say it all? ;-)

If you know my kids in real life, this last picture proves every birth-order stereotype in the book. Collin, the oldest, a rule follower, hasn't moved an inch. You tell him to stay, he stays. Drew, the middle, never ruffled, never upset, he'll just walk away. He's only there for the good times. And the youngest...well, you get the idea.

Have a great weekend!

Ha Karli! These are awesome! Sometimes capturing the chaos is better than a perfect smiling picture. I can see what you mean about the boys costumes breaking the bank, those are serious!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my post, now you've made MY night! :)

Have an awesome Halloween weekend! I can't wait to see your pictures next week! xo

She would have looked so cute in the dragon costume. I would have mailed it to you. I didn't know she didn't have a costume. :( Your boys costumes are awesome though. Hope you have a great weekend. Getting kids together is hard work. lol!

You know how much I <3 you right?
This level of cuteness is almost too much to bear. IMO there couldn't be a better costume for her than Ninja Cowgirl!

*so glad you're back/you know I'm back, right?

I hate to laugh...but this is great. Tiny Tornado is hard at work. I'm a first born...that stereotype so works for me, but not Jeremy.

Courtney said...

LOL - hysterical. I can't help but laugh. These shots are just too funny!

What a hoot! Hope you have a Happy Halloweekend!

Oh man, she is so MAD! I love these pictures!

Mom of M&Ms said...

OH. MY. Love them. We had a christmas card with body language like this one year... but we also had the dog in motion walking through the chaos.. The top shot of Tornado is hysterical....Love those costumes... My kids get what ever they can scrounge from the playroom dress up box.

Casey Martinez said...

oh man that is classic!! Your kids are going to crack up over these pictures in a just a few more years!! Love it!

Natalie said...

These are hilarious! Way better than a photo of them all cooperating.

Okay, this series of photos totally had me cracking up. I think my favorite part of these is that you can totally tell their personality and mood even the masks hiding their facial expressions. I don't know if you scrapbook, but these would make an awesome layout. :)

I stumbled upon your blog while I was at Ashley Plus 3, and I am glad I did. Awesome photos and I love your blog! :)

Anna said...

LOL--I love these true-to-life snaps! Thanks for the laugh. :)

Kathryn said...

crackin up on the story board picks and your birth order comments!

Brooke G. said...

This is what 99.6% of my photos look like :D Your photos are so amazing, it makes me feel better to know that you have bloopers too - hee! And, if nothing else... they are HYSTERICAL! :D Have a great Halloween.

Jess said...

I am laughing my butt off, but only because I know your pain! My Bean and your tornado could seriously be two peas in the same pod.

Why is it that when we try to get a group shot of our kids some will do great & others just flat out refuse to be still for 10 seconds? It's like they try to punish us for all of the times we shove our cameras in there faces & say SMILE... It's so frustrating but a lot of times pretty entertaining! LOL :D

Courtney from The Story of Us said...

I forgot to mention that I LOVE your storyboards & b/c I'm a little retentive please know I understand the difference between *there & *their!!!!!!!!! Excuse my typo above...I think I need to go back to bed...

Adeena said...

That is so hilarious!!! :D

Ninja cowgirl = awesome.

And the boys' costumes rock. :)
