Every fall, at our house, we have a tradition. The children are split as to whether they love it or hate it, but every year, like clockwork, out we go, to spend a day, just them and me – taking pictures.
I don’t do the traditional “school pictures” because I normally don’t like the ones they take in school. OnlySon usually is either giving a goofy smile, or not smiling at all, and YoungerDaughter has a tendency to either slouch and look like she’s a turtle, or she juts her chin forward and smiles wide enough to show people her tonsils.
So, I’ve been taking their pictures myself for the last few years. Here’s what we got this year.
Getting both of them to smile at the same time? Priceless!
And then, there’s this, a collage I created for YoungerDaughter out of some of the “outtakes”.
My babys. Gotta love ’em.
