Our Trash Can: The Resident Photographer

Bryan's aunt is being cool and compiling a big family history book.
And she has requested pictures of every single living member of the family.
Which includes us.
It's a cool idea and I'm happy to help.

But the most recent family picture of us was from this summer.
And it was taken inside an airplane museum with terrible light.

...Not exactly the way we want to be remembered for generations to come.

So today we set the camera on top of the garbage can and used the timer to snap a few pictures.

Evidently, saying "Come here, Lala!  Come here, Lala!  Come here, Lala!" doesn't really work.
Okay, let's try this again.

Umm... where did our child go?

Try not to be jealous of how cool I am, guys.

Why do I look so awkward?

Oops.  Accidentally clicked it instead of setting the timer.

Okay, good enough.

And now with some words to make us look fancy.

This is definitely not the family picture we're planning to use for our Christmas cards this year.
I have entirely different plans for that whole project.
But at least now we have finally documented that all three of us were in the same place at the same time at least once since the summer.

Nevermind my only having one arm.

Haha! This made me laugh because we have the same predicament. Except we just ended up sending one of our wedding pictures. Well, technically it was one of the bridal pictures, so we weren't even married yet, but it was professionally done and my hair looks awesome. Not taking so many great pictures these days...

Haha - the whole series made us chuckle. Nice job of disguising the amputation.

Love it. Getting good family pics only gets harder the more kids you have. Guaranteed.

I laughed out loud at this! It is so true :)

Sometimes there's just nothing finer than awkward family photos. But most of these are pretty cute :)

Your family is so cute!! It is so hard to get family pictures. A friend of mine tries to take one a month. And I keep trying to remember to do that, but I haven't started yet! ha!
