sugar and spice

Slowly but surely I'm working on getting the kids yearly pictures taken.  Nothing like waiting until the last month. 

My first intent was to wait for the fall colors.  They came and went while all 4 kids (and mom) were down and out with some bad bugs.  Then my camera went haywire.. it may or may not have been a result from being dropped once.  Or twice.  In between that, we've had bumps and bruises.  I debated on holding off until everyone is picture perfect.  But that day will never come.  Editing can tweak a few things out, then again, each bump, bruise and mark has a story to tell.  One that in time we'll forget, until we look back at the picture.

I've learned with 4 kids, pictures are a work in progress.  I take what I can get, when I can get them.  Last night the girls wanted to dress up, curl their hair and take pictures.  Who was I to stop them?  We did get some keepers.  And we still need to keep taking more shots.
