{pretty, happy, funny, real}


I was able to take advantage of Shutterfly’s early sale to order our cards this year, which meant we took advantage of some nice weather last weekend to attempt the Family Picture! So, here we go again…

There’s always one who doesn’t want to be in the picture.

And the one where 99% of us are smiling? Blurry and unfocused.

Sometimes those in charge of the self-timer (and the number of helpers grew each time Haus Meister got up to set it) barely made it back in time.

In the end, we actually didn’t use a full family picture on our card. We ended up choosing, as I said in a previous post, a card with seven picture openings, so we got a number of lovely individual smiles from children…

… and a rather nice one of the two of us. We kind of forget to take a picture of just us. It was nice to get one done this year.

Of course, we didย have a Dinosaur visit during the impromptu backyard photo shoot.

And that’s pretty real. Actually, Dino was almost in the first “couple picture.” Before some creative cropping you could just make out the top of his green hat.

I haven’t finished the Master Bedroom Challenge yet–there’s more Real!–also because I’ve been working on the Clear Out the Spare Room Challenge (my own) as well as some other emergency cleaning that comes up daily in a life with kids at home. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I do plan on completing it soon. I hope. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. The annual Family Portrait Challenge is still ahead of us, and since it’s sunny out and The Husband has the day off, it’ll be tackled today. As soon as the baby wakes up from his nap… I can’t say I’m looking forward to it. Haha.
