The outtakes...

...and I thought taking a decent picture of all my own kids was next to impossible.
It was nothin' compared to the attempts at taking a picture of my parents and siblings.
Now granted, there WAS a HUGE storm brewing and large cracks of thunder could be heard booming over our heads, but all we needed was just.ONE. decent. picture.

Was that too much to ask?

Take ONE...

Lightening strikes and thunder booms...
My sister Allison is about to bolt and my brother Steve is ready for this torture to be over!!

Take TWO...

Thunder cracks again and Steve is out of there!
We are all annoyed that Steven left and beg him to come back for just one more try!

Take THREE...

Steve begrudgingly returns and shares with us his lovely countenance---not!
Oh well...good enough!

hahahaha, apparently your Steven is like our Jonathan! And, too funny that your pics were with a storm brewing, too! We had lightning and thunder happening back in May for our pics, too.

I have commented a few times before...I am not trying to embarrass you because you should be proud!!!! But Dang! Do you do like a bazillion crunches a day to have abs like you do?!

Your family is stinkin adorable and I just love that you are sharing your lives and the love of Christ with sweet A.
