Photo Shoot....Without the Shark!

So, long before Sears changed their pricing, we had decided to do the grandkid pictures ourselves.  Last time we went to Sears, they had no idea how to arrange nine people (and now there are 10), plus they didn't have a wide enough angle to get everyone in.  Alexander has been cut off in my picture frame for the last year!  Since summer flew by, we thought that we would do a fall theme this year and it really turned out quite nice.  The weather cooperated perfectly.  With four kids 3 and under, it was a VERY large challenge trying to get everyone looking at the camera at the same time.  These are some of my favourites.

I couldn't decide which of these two photos I liked best so I just included both of them.

I think this is one of my favourite poses but the bubbles were supposed to serve as a little less of a distraction!

This isn't the best photo, but it was an impromptu sit by the kids while I was scouting locations.  It's pretty cute, anyway.

Out of all of them, I think this is my favourite.  It's very fun and fall-like - and they're all pretty cute!

Then, we tried to get into the pile of leaves and, well, the littles were just done.  This photo is adorable but not in an "I'd put it up on my wall" kind of way.

While the pile of leaves was being made, the kids were just running around.  I got this most amazing photo of my oldest boy - absolutely no editing needed!  It's just so full of fun.

After we finished the big group, I tried to get one of just my boys.  Bradley wasn't too thrilled about more pictures but I don't have one since last summer and I think this turned out pretty cute, too.

So, there they are...the grandkids for another year.

Until next time...
