family(-of-six) photos.

a couple of weeks ago, a friend came over after church so we could take a picture or two for a slideshow for another sunday service.  we figured, 'hey. everyone will be bathed and dressed for church.  the camera will be out.  we'll have an extra set of hands to help photograph/corral everyone.  let's take a few snapshots of the family.'

believe it or not, these are the first photos with all of us in them.

also, believe it or not, but taking photos while trying to get four babies/preschoolers to cooperate is not the walk in the park one might think.  

finneas was set on making a break for it.

he did not care about possible casualties.

this here is atticus' sock.  just to clarify.

finneas was still not into the idea of sitting and smiling for the camera.

aahh, the finger-in-the-nose bit.  classic.  

the ridiculousness of this photo can not be blamed on the kids.  even though finneas is, indeed, still trying to make a run for it.

thankfully, thankfully, THANKFULLY, we got a few good (or at least, mostly decent) ones:

so there we all are, for once!  it's a monday miracle!
