The Perfect Picture

On occasion, I will have a vision of a picture that I want of my two babies, and I won’t stop trying until I get the shot I have in my head.

This Easter I envisioned coordinating outfits (and who would have thought that, I usually tease people who match, and yet I found myself leaving the kids store with a bag of green and white clothing. And then I ended up matching them too). I also pictured sweet smiles and Christopher’s arm placed protectively over Emmy’s shoulder. Instead I got weirdo facial expressions, nose wiping, and red eyes.




And finally, something that is pretty good (pretend Emmy’s eyes aren’t red)!


And these are just pics of the two kids – so what about our actual family photo? Yeah, I forgot that Chris wasn’t wearing any pants when we posed for the shot.

Oh well, I guess the truth is out – we are wiggling, pants free, awkward smiling people – not matching, posing, normal eye color type of people.
