Halloween in Pictures

This is how you take a picture of four small children in their Halloween regalia.

You get one decent shot, but decide they should all be on the same level.

So you put them all on one level.

You get a pretty good shot–takes like twenty shots to get this one, but it’s worth it.

Three boys on a bench and another standing up.

Louie decides that no, actually, it is not worth it.

Mom moves in to wrangle the the crazies.

Probably THE shot

One more, but the natives are definitely getting restless.

And then Louie makes a break for it. Picture time is done.

Hope you all had a lovely Halloween (if you celebrate it)!!

  1. ha ha ha! LOVE it!!!!

  2. You are an angel.

  3. Oh, love it!


  4. So my seven year old daughter was looking over my shoulder and said “Gosh, she has a lot of babies.” There was a pause as she continued her examination. “Hmmm. That must be really hard…. It must be REALLY hard to be the only girl with all those boys.” (If that was the only hard thing about kids, give me a dozen.) She wants you to know she know what it’s like to be “boy-trapped.”

    • One day she’ll probably figure out that boy-trapped isn’t as bad as it seems. I kind of like being the Queen Bee.

  5. Oh my goodness, I love every single one! You have quite the crew of pirates there, my friend! When are we doing lunch again?

    • You tell me! I’m pretty flexible as long as I have a little advance notice. Also, some of the ladies who came to our LA Bloggers lunch want to meet up again!

  6. That last picture had me laughing out loud, Louie’s facial expression is priceless. I love how awesome Charlie is sitting too. What a bunch of cute pirates!

  7. So precious!!! I’m pretty sure that most of the photos from when my sibs and I were around this age ended with us either accidentally throttling each other, or crying…

  8. I didn’t know you had a fifth child. I don’t think you are feeding him enough. He looks a little thin. πŸ˜‰
