"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

tough love











Come on... act like you like each other!  I just want a picture of my girls.  Is that really too much to ask?

Am I the only one who has to put up with this just to get 1 decent picture?  Of course I'm glad that they have fun together, but sheesh.  I was way more tolerant when it took 10 tries to get a toddler shot - they are young women now!  I'm often found trying to sneak a picture and you know how that goes...





Blessings, Debbie
*note the cute skirt that Erin made Audrey for her birthday in August~

  1. You've got a couple of lovely daughters there, Spring Chick - siblings eh? Never a dull moment.

    Found your blog through Jacqui at Barefoot.

    Great pics here - looking forward to reading more.

  2. They are just too cute Debbie. No, you are not the only one. I think our children must have gotten together and decided to make sure we fill up a memory card for just one decent picture. My children, especially the guy's, always cut up and usually push my patience to the limit. Rotten kid's ;) xx

  3. Beautiful girls, Debbie!

    And yes, mine do this too - one especially makes the faces!

    The skirt is cute!

    Have a great Monday!

  4. Kids will be kids. My two never take a serious photo. They are always pulling faces :)

  5. I can guarantee that if there are three children in the photo, the first photo will be OK, but the next ten will have someone pulling a face. Makes it worse that they rush over to see what it looks like on the camera. Noticed the cup of pens in the cupboard. I do the same so that I can guarantee finding a working pen. Its gradually moving up the shelves as the children grow!

    Admired the skirt straightaway. It suits her!

  11. That's nearly the exact face my oldest makes when the word "broom" is mentioned!
    I can totally understand this! But they're still just plain beautiful! :)

  12. This one made my daughter and me laugh right out loud!
    Her favorite is the last shot of your daughters.
    Even with the "escape in progress" pictures, you can tell that they love each other.
    Have I already mentioned how much I love your blog posts?
    :) Jodi

  18. Hehe! Yep, it's usually "Quit hitting each other!" or "No, not a silly face! Just smile!". :) I remember hearing the same thing from my mom too...

  19. Beautiful daughters (including your older girl, Hilary). These photos make a great collage. All of them. xo,

  21. Debbie, your girls are both beautiful and hysterical! (Why do I suspect that they take a bit after their mom? ;-))
    Thanks for giving me a really big smile to start the week!
    And what is it about kids and pictures anyway?!

    Love, Cheryl

  22. I am so glad to see a family of girls (you, too!) with such a sense of fun! How cute they are! (you, too!)

  23. Dear Debbie,

    Ha ha ha ha ha! Your girls could be my two oldest! I had to bring them in to share the laugh (by the way, how do you get away with posting these pictures of your children, hee hee!). :)

    The skirt is indeed very cute, too!

    Love,

    Marqueta

  25. I thought those were my tow oldest girls for a moment... ah such a failiar type moment in our house, too.

  26. Ours are the same way when we try to get a picture of them together....then I give them the "mom look" and they cooperate (they are supposed to be grown after all!)
    Your daughters are lovely!

  27. Sisters are so great! These photos made me miss my little sis!

  28. My girls are the same, especially Izzy. She covers her face up!
    Your girls are so beautiful. Bless them.xxx

  29. It gets a little better when they're actually grown up. But only a little I can get a nice picture of Gin if she's holding the baby - alone? I still get the face, and she's over thirty. Cam and M mug like idiots, but at least it's a surfeit of smile - but Chaz? Now, that's a girl who loves the camera. The girls are both beautiful, by the way - silly things.

  30. Sorry Debbie, about the confusion, lol. That must be a load off your mind, lol... I took a look on her blog but was too pressed for time to read it. I shouldn't have assumed. I try not to but sometimes when we don't have our facts straight these things happens. Sorry again. She looks adorable holding the cute little baby. I thought that she looked awful young to have all those kids.. I feel like an April fool. ha,ha. JB
