On the way home from church, I announced that I wanted to get our traditional Easter shot when we got home, so no one was to change and everyone should meet in the front yard. That was met with shouts and joy and cheers, of course. Not really. Sighs and moans from the whole car, except Avery. (She's quite photogenic usually.)
So everyone met in the front, where we take our yearly shot. Well, at least for the past two years, we've taken this same shot, so in my book, that means a tradition is made. We set up the self timer and took maybe a dozen photos, and then all of a sudden, everyone was done. You can see that I've trained Ansley and Christian well, and they are all smiles even when things are falling apart around them. John is clearly saying he's done, Finn doesn't even want to look at the camera any longer, and Avery is crying because....well I can't remember. But probably something like because the flowers weren't pink. (At the Easter egg hunt at our church, she went around and only picked up the pink and purple eggs, plus one green one for Mimi, since she knows that's her favorite color. No other colors, just a basket full of pink and purple eggs. She makes me laugh!)
I'm just keeping it real, so you know that it's not all sunshiney and roses around here! Nevertheless, I do love my sweet family.
