What do you do....


When 1 child won't smile for a quick family picture? Do you threaten? Do you bribe? Do you punish? 

Do you pinch his cheek? 

Or do you just pick the one where you, and everyone else, look the best?

Bribery -- I use it all the time :) I like the last one!

I like the last one and the first one best (not sure which) but might I add--it seems so weird (and welcome) to see Andrew with hair that you don't even notice he isn't smiling. What a handsome boy!

The are so fun! My favorite is the last one!

You send the worst one of said child out and then years from now laugh about it!

Jenibelle - That's what I wanted to do, but my husband didn't want me to! I did get a 5x7 of it to display for all to see!

All I have to say is that you have a beautiful family! Smiles or not!!

too old for spankings? although i guess that wouldn't get you any smiles either...
just out of luck i guess. sometimes a dollar goes a long way.

That is the way a family rolls huh. So cute and so fun. I love the purity of them all. Thanks for all your kind words lately. I should get over here more often myself. You know what time of year it is though. :)

And those pictures are from Mark Mabry. So much like Liz though. Both are such great captures of the Saviors life.

Happy times to you and your lovely family.

I think you pick the one you look the best in! THese are cute. but I would be mad too - when kids don't cooperate with pictures I get mad! Because we all just want a nice picture of our family!! I love your mantle header too- so pretty!

Merry Christmas!
