Family Pictures

So, after I had you all dress me I'm sure you're dying to see how the family pictures turned out.
Um... so... yeah...

They didn't!!
Zack looked adorable, as always.

Jake looked wonderful.

I on the other hand looked like I had a HORRIBLE case of double chin syndrome and some really squinty eyes. (It's BAD)

They had us sit on the floor and me, on the floor, leaning down, in a turtle neck does just not lend it's self to good pictures. I will show you one, and only one of the bunch in which you can see just how awful my look was.
Now... let us NEVER speak of this again...

My son, on the other hand, took some REALLY adorable photos.

There was this one...
(For those of you who are unfamiliar, that is puppy. Puppy is our best friend and he goes EVERYWHERE with us. Anyone have any ideas on how I can wash puppy so he smells nice and clean without ruining him? I don't think I would be forgiven if I ruined him.)
And this one....
This one... And this one, which is one of my favorites....
Oh, and can't forget this one...
That is quintessentially a Zack face....

And even these turned out pretty well.... But unfortunately the place where we got our pictures taken does not do two or three picture Christmas cards. Just one picture per card so we picked one. And if you want to see which one you will have to send me your address and get a Christmas card from me. (Or wait until Christmas when I post it.)
In the mean time we will be having our entire family picture taken in a month and so we will try to get some different family pictures then.

Send puppy to Jess-i-ca-ca house for a day in the spa. He will return clean, fresh, and ready for more travels with young Spike man!!

We could do it next Saturday night after he goes to sleep!

Since you are going to have your pictures taken again, are we going to get to dress you for these too? => I think they turned out great. Can't wait to get my card!

I always look stupid in family pictures and I have no idea why. I'm photogenic the rest of the time, just not when it involves posed pictures.

I agree that the photos look great! I never would have noticed the "flaws" (if you could call them that, I think you look fine) if you hand't pointed them out. I love your final choice of clothes!
