Merry Christmas from the Terrific Twos!

I thought it would be a great idea to get a family picture this morning at church since the kids were dressed in their cute, red and black outfits. Brody, on the other hand, did not think it was such a great idea. I've decided we will probably not have any good family pictures while Brody is a two years old. :) Jill caught all these funny pictures as I tried to wrangle our boy!

You might be wondering why he was throwing this little fit...it was because he wanted my dad! So the only way to get decent family picture was to let my dad jump in with us. I know we will look back on all these pictures and laugh!

Brody did seem to enjoy having his picture made with one of the reindeer in the church lobby. This is the best picture we got of him this morning.

At least this sweet girl smiled for the camera this morning! I thought she looked so cute in her little red dress. She is growing so fast!

Hope you all have had a great weekend!

Hilarious! This is sooo my life; either one is looking or smiling but never both! It will be fun and funny to look back on one day though, you're right!!

That is so funny! My husband and I just attempted the same thing. I have asked for a remote for my camera. It was not easy jumpin up back and forth being 34 weeks pregnant to press the camera button! After about 10 pictures, we're going to have to just go with what we have :)

Been there done that. ;0) It does get easier. I'm not quite on the "easy" road entirely, but my lil' man is calmer now when it comes to family picture time. Your family is adorable! Merry Christmas!

Sarah said...

These are so funny! I must say, I love that you are laughing through it all! It's so easy to become flustered when they don't do what you want but you handled it so well! My 2 year old is a lot like Brody - super busy! - so I understand!! Merry Christmas to your family!

Your family is precious. Brody is Lauren to a T. She won't smile ever. We did get 1 grin for the Christmas card but it wasn't easy!

Erin said...

That is too funny.. Love it and you will look back and laugh.. a few things I have learned as a photographer is there is no forcing a kid to take pictures and that patience is key :)

So sweet that he wanted grandpa though!

Betsy said...

Oh my gosh, Jennifer! I have to laugh. I don't think I have a single good picture of my kids all together at that age. It's next to impossible to get one!! :)
