Family Pictures

I took the kids out to a local park today and tried to get some Christmas card pics.  288 pictures later...I have two I can choose from.

Criminey.

But I got lots of of awesome outtakes and single shots.  It's just that group picture that is so elusive - you know the one.  The one with 3 kids, all with normal smiles, all looking at the camera, no boogers, no underwear showing, etcetera etcetera and so on and so forth.  It's like the Big Foot of photography.

Whatevs.  I didn't post the two finalists below cause I gotta save something for the Christmas card.  But I loved these ones, too.

Ah, the fall foliage.

P.S.  I'm exhausted.  Taking pictures of three children by yourself is no easy task.  I think I need a personal assistant.

They are so darling, and getting so big. I love fall leaves in pictures. Now I need to get my boys out for photos too. Good pictures of them tend to just as elusive as you described.
