Picture Day

I took my younger 4 to have pictures done yesterday. Do you know how hard it is to get 4 kids to cooperate with the camera? I have to give Jessica and Delaney credit, they did great. However, Sean and Owen were HORRIBLE. I guess, in a way, it is my fault. I have not been as deligent about getting their pictures taken as I was with the others, so they are not used to it, but come on...how hard is it to sit, for just 10 minutes so the photographer can snap a picture? Ok, ok, I know, they are are only 17 months, but still.....

Our original appt was at 9am. Not sure what the hell I was thinking. Do you really think I was going to be able to get all 4 up and ready for pictures and out of the door by 8:15..Ha!! Anyway, Owen was up all night, not feeling so well, poo coming out of his diaper, all over him, his bed, the blanket that he NEEDS to sleep. So we were up at 3am washing babies, bed sheets, and blankets. I made the executive decision at that point that I was not going to the appt and would just reschedule. I guess I forgot to tell Jess (it was 3am, afterall) because when I came out of my room at 7:15, with one eye open, holding a crying baby, she was sitting at the table, eating breakfast and get this...she had already had a shower!! What a good kid!!

I called Portriat Innovations and rescheduled. They were extremely nice. She let me reschedule for later in the afternoon and said that if I were still having problems to just call back!!

So we went in at 4:15. The boys were SO scared of the man that was trying to make them smile. I felt so sorry for the poor guy. Everytime he went close to them, they screamed and ran to me. He finally gave up and traded places with a nice young lady who did the best she could with what she had to work with. Here are few shots we were able to get. (BTW they took 88 pictures and we had to pick out of them, NOT EASY) BTW, if you buy three poses, they give you the CD with ALL of your pictures on it!!
