Wordless Wednesday - Perfect Picture Attempt

Okay, so it's rarely "wordless" when it comes to me!  The other day I was attempting to get a good photo of all three kiddies to send to Grammy and Pop.  Of course, getting my darling angels to sit still and all look at the camera at the same time is a little complicated.  Getting smiles is pretty much a bonus!
Attempt One:  Okay, this would have been perfect if David remembered where the camera was and if Gabi was not in the process of lifting up her skirt. . . 
Attempt Two:  Not too bad, although my suddenly-girly-girl decides to fix her hair and David has a sudden attraction to his foot. . . 
Attempt Three:  Finally David looks at the camera! and well, the others are pretty much absorbed elsewhere. . . 
Attempt Four:  Gabi pulls a classic and closes her eyes in a most angelic position.  Michael is blocking the paparazzi, and David, well, he's still focused on that foot. . . 
Attempt Five:  Let's all look in different directions, shall we?  And David, I think we've had enough of the "grabbing foot" pose!
Attempt Six:  Oh, wow.  They are all actually looking in the right direction.  Good job dropping the foot, buddy.  This could be our picture. . . Oh let's just try one more time to see if we can get some smiles. . . 

Attempt Seven:  Success! (and aren't they just too adorable?  I can say that right now because they are currently not destroying anything or raising the decibel level of my house!)

Check out more "wordless" fun at 5 Minutes for Mom! (I guarantee you that some of those ladies' posts aren't wordless, either! :)

Oh, and in case you still haven't voted in the "Just Horsin' Around" contest at 5 Minutes for Mom, please go and vote for Gabi's picture, number 19, here!  She would love that you voted for her!

  3. Love it! I usually end up with a series of 100 pix before I get one that actually works. :)

  4. Aww, Jeannette! They're adorable! :-) I get so super frustrated when Jakeroo won't cooperate when I'm trying to get a good pic, but I sure do enjoy all the extra goofy takes later. :-)

  13. LOL I can attest to the fact that it doesn't neccessarily get easier as they get older either. But when they're your kids ages, the pics are cute regardless of what they do in them:)
