When the kids were up last weekend, Nichole wanted to get a family picture of Rick & I and the Grandkids.

Have you ever tried to get 5 kids ages 4 – 9 to sit still for 2 minutes without making silly faces?

Walker, dude, are you OK?ย  You look like you’re trying to pass a kidney stone or something.ย  Relax bud.

And Alexis, now is not the time to show us your whistle technique thankyouverymuch.

Kayla darlin’, we know you’re cute, no need to flaunt.

Why do I look as if I’m saying “Are we done yet?”

Because I wasn’t.ย  Saying that, that is.

Rick must have tickled Alexis in order to get this reaction.

That’s probably why I look like I’m telling him to behave in my nice “I’ll kill you later” voice.

And who hasn’t run into the “Child who wants to look at anything except the camera”.

Maybe I had a stray nose hair or something.

After 7 tries, this is the winning picture.

No giggles, no painful facial expressions, no adorable poses.

Just a normal photo.

Well, as normal as you can be with our family.
