Wordful Wednesday--WHY?

 

I thought I'd finally give Wordful Wednesday a shot!

This here is my herd of boys. Why is it nearly impossible to get a decent shot of 5 young ones? I mean, I can get GREAT photos of them separately but my Christmas cards really could use a nice, loving shot of them TOGETHER. This is the kind of thing I get instead.....Jon strangling Tucker while Tanner manhandles Brennen. Hey, maybe I'll send New Year's cards out instead....I *should* be able to get a decent shot at Christmas. Maybe I can withold presents until the image is captured....? Hmm.......

Welcome to wordful wednesdays! This shot cracked me up. It might actually be kind of funny to send one like this out instead of a perfect one. :) It would make people smile.

i sometimes take victory in the fact that we are all in one pic...cute boys!

Amy said...

I think this is a great shot! I have no idea how to get all the kids in a 'perfect' shot - well, maybe with digital technology? A magical WW to you!

Kimber said...

Candid shots are by far the best. IMO

I can't even imagine. It was hard enough getting the three of us coordinated, now there's four! For what it's worth, I think you're pictures turn out great, there's so much character!

I love this photo. And yes, I do like Wordful Wednesday much better than Wordless!!! It's a great idea if you ask me.

My Wordful Wednesday is Photoful too this week. And I'm having my 1st ever blog giveaway if you would like to check it out...from the link on my sidebar! Happy Wednesday to you.

I LOVE this pic. It's so much more fun to see kids how they are than all dressed up and stiff in some silly portrait.

BTW, my #2 (my 9 year old girl) and her friends think your oldest is a Jonas brother! cutie:-)

Bribery is the KEY to good pictures, I think!

THis is a good picture. I doubt you'd get 'loving' with a bribe pic, though. It's a harder sell.

Now there's a thought........:) I think the photo of your gorgeous boys turned out really well!

Five boys! I have one and my head is swimming. My sister-in-law has five girls and thought that was crazy. Now I'll tell her she is not alone! Only you have boys!

Great shot, even if it wasn't perfect!

Girl... you are super woman!

You did something good in a past life to be blessed like this!!

I only have 3 men.

Shasta said...

It's so real though! I love it! I can't get a decent picture of my 3 boys so I can't imagine trying to age a decent one of 5!

I would use that one though, it's cute!

Julie said...

I think it's a great pic! Better than I can do at the moment!

Mandy said...

I have problems getting my two boys in a great picture. i cannot imagine 5! My hat is off to you!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I Love it! That's life with boys, for sure!

Nicole said...

Oh my goodness! How do you do it? I have 3 boys and they wear me out!!!! Great picture.

yulz said...

Momma said...

Much better pic than I could get of my 3 kids! Good for you!
