Smile. Gosh Darn-it.

Today, during our family photo shoot. I actually yelled at my little boy to smile. As soon as I did, I realized how ridiculous that was. Who can smile when someone is demanding & yelling at them to do it? Deep breath. And I became the mommy singing and tap dancing behind the photographer. That worked, for a minute. The bag of bribe marshmallows didn't hurt either.
{don't be tricked. this pic is from July. the new ones will make their debut on the x-mas card.}
But really, why is it that the few minutes you want everyone to reflect how happy, and loving, and completely perfect they are...are always the few minutes when everybody just loses it? Happy holiday picture taking everyone!
