Funny....

It's amazing how long kids will sit and do goofy things if you plug your camera into the TV WHILE you are taking the pictures!

 
Tanner, stiff as a board
 
My goofy strong men!
 
Brennen, being silly with Grandma. Can you see his lizard tongue?
 
More craziness!

Oh darlin how do you do it??? I have one girl and I feel like a chicken with my head cut off most days. You are my hero! This pix are priceless. Your children have lovely eyes!

Kalin said...

lol The expressions in the strong men picture crack me up!

The Mommy said...

Adorable boys! I've got two and feel like I'm stretched out, how do you do it?! It's amazing to think that one day they'll be big and even more active than they are now! :) Scarily enough, seeing them interact in those pics almost makes me want more! ~gasp~

Rachel Ann said...

You have some fun boys!

Saundra@An Italian Mama Gone Crazy said...

Whoo girl... those are some gorgeous children you have there!

KC Mom said...

I have anxiety just thinking about all you have to do. You're doing a great job Mom!!

HeatherY said...

Silly boys! Looks like y'all had lots of fun!

Kimmie0270 said...

How cute are they! You are blessed.

Noah's Mommy said...

my goodness....I would have lost my sanity a long time ago with all those boys....but are they cute....I think they're keepers...

Creative Junkie said...

Five boys.


OMG.

I seriously can't imagine it!

Blogger needs to get one of those "I'm not worthy" smilies.

I hope you at least have your own bathroom.

Blicky Kitty said...

Oooh good photography trick! :) They are adorable!

Preston said...

How totally funny. But I think guys get goofy in front of cameras at just about any age. LOL

Melissa Lester said...

Your photos really catch the energy of your home with five boys. I have four children, two boys and two girls, and my boys have no shortage of energy. My 9-year-old has it to burn and asks often if he can run home when we pull in to our neighborhood so we can get rid of it. Last night, I let him and followed behind him. I wish we had a more equal distribution of energy, as he is still practically levitating at bedtime and I am dragging myself through the bedtime routine. Blessings to you with five bundles of energy!

Heather said...

God bless your heart! How on earth do you ever get anything done? I only have three, and some days I feel like a hamster on a wheel...

Hope you have a great SITS day today. Maybe that will make up for the "running out of gas" day!

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Wow! Your pics really capture the essence of boys being boys! Well without the mud and sludge and toads. *lol*

I always thought I wanted a houseful of boys. Having had 3 boys and two girls now, I think it all evens out!

Happy SITS day!

Honey Mommy said...

Check out your boys showing off their muscles! How funny!

jubilee said...

What a bunch of blessings you have!

sassy stephanie said...

Wow, my bro-in-law has 4 boys and is trying to talk the wife into a baby...he wants a girl. So, you know what that means. He'll get another boy!

Looks like they enjoy each other!

DiPaola Momma said...

Yeah, it sure is. And that your oldest one there isn't going "Mooooommmm you can't post pictures of me doing un-cool things!" It's great how my oldest (I've got 4 myself, 2 of each) becomes modest when there is a chance one of his friends might see the pics (check out his halloween costume on my blog..HA)

Hang in there momma I'm in awe of your sainty level with 5 boys!!

Brandy said...

LOL!

Happy SITS day!

Vickie said...

Cool photos. Wow five boys. My brother has 3 boys and a girl and he wants another kid, but my sister-in-law will not, unless a girl is guaranteed. I myself just want another baby. My husband says I am crazy.

~Trish~ said...

Silly boys rock!

Kelly Deneen said...

LOL. Those pictures totally crack me up. You are raising some great and funny boys there. :)

Happy SITS day, by the way!

Blue Castle said...

Your guys are adorable. Love the blue eyes. At least now you know how to get an interesting and funny picture of them. :) For a long time, we'd catch my oldest hamming it up in front of the mirror. If we could sneak up on him without him noticing, it was pretty hilarious to watch.

Katie said...

What a beautiful family! Congrats on being the FB!

Michelle said...

Ahhh... the things children will do for a camera! Too bad you can't lug the camera with you to those professional photograpy sessions where they are just as goofy when all you want them to do is sit still and smile nicely ;)

cornnut32 said...

my mom ended up with four girls and a boy. we used to love taking funny pictures like this (and STILL do, even as adults!)

your baby's eyes are just beautiful--so big, and bright blue. :)

Rhea said...

Cuties. I can sense the crazy boy energy through my computer screen. I swear. And it's leaking into MY house. No, back, back, I tell you, ahh!!!

The Boss Lady said...

What is it with boys and being shirtless? Mine run around re-enacting Lord of the Flies constantly, and I can't figure out why. I guess just because they can?

mumzie said...

Reluctant Housewife said...

What a bunch of cuties. I only have two boys, but they just about produce an equal amount of silliness. I love capturing it on camera.

WheresMyAngels said...

Boys are nuts aren't they! Glad I only raised one!! lol

Ok, I am loving that sofa!

justjuli said...

Too funny! I love when kids get all goofy for the camera.

Happy SITS day!

Lavender n Lattés said...

I don't know how you do it - I'm getting tired just thinking about it :) -- I have 3 kids, (only 1 is a boy), but they are in High School & College - so most of the hectic-ness is over now...whew! It DOES get easier...and since you don't have girls, the "teen" years won't be that bad - really! You seem like a great mom - you're boys are lucky to have you!!!

Tiffany said...

See, that is just straight up happiness.

Love it.
