What We Do For Fun

Guess what we did this month? Family pictures. And because we love the feeling of herding cats, we did it twice.

The first time (see above) we wore authentic 70's clothing purchased from our local thrift stores.

The second time we dressed a little more 2008.


We have never had so much fun taking family photos - from posing to the blaring tunes of Saturday Night Fever on a deserted water truck to running amok on a playground...

Jason, you did an amazing job. Thank you for putting up with our crazy antics.

Well, what a miraculously marvelous mob of magnificent munchkins! And those parents are definitely eye candy too (wink wink). My compliments to both the photographer and the subjects--they really are amazing pictures!

(And not to single out just one, but that Elle is looking beauty-full!)

Gerb, I think you belonged in the 70s, cuz you make that fashion look good. :)

Rebecca said...

And that is not to say that you don't belong today--you make EVERYTHING look good!

Oddly, it seemed like there were more of you in the first picture.
I can't get over Baby O's cheeks in the bottom one. He is surrounded by a lot of love.
Awesome pictures!

Awesome! Those pictures are amazing. Not only is your family stunningly beautiful and funny, but your photographer captured it perfectly.

Sounds like everyone has said this a thousand times, but I love these photos. I am a photo looker, meaning I browse photography sites all the time. I love to see new ideas. This is by far my favorite family photo ever. I love the one of your family all looking through the truck windshield.

What a clever idea to dress up in another era's clothes. I'm impressed that you could round all your chickens up for a picture together. That is a big job--I know, because we have tried to get our family together on occasion for family pictures.

You have a beautiful family.

Sarah said...

Wow. I cannot believe how big your kids are getting. It seems like just yesterday your husband was bringing you over for introductions as the soon-to-be-fiancee. How time flies.
