Getting family pictures taken is one of the most stressful things, I think. Ugh. . .first trying to find a time to schedule it, then figuring out what everyone will wear because no one ever likes what Mom picks out, but too bad. Mom and Dad pay for them so you wear what they say :) Getting hair done, and tough if you don't like it curled, but I am paying for it, so your hair is being curled. Lots of love going around before family pictures. It makes me laugh. Yeah, we try to look happy after all the fighting before to get the silly things done.
and then how hard is it to actually look at the camera and smile?
have a normal face????
So you hope after all the blood, sweat, fighting, and tears you have at least one out of the hundreds they took that looks good.
Man, if you only knew the real story behind the picture. . .
Family pictures--got to love them. At least they are done, and you don't have to do them again for another year.
