mother's day pics
Ever look at a pic and wonder who those people are? I feel that way about this pic. Is that really me with those 3 kids? They are mine? Like, I am old and have three children and I am their sole care taker? Oh wow!
Like all the matching? I scored a new dress when we bought the kids Easter outfits and just wore it for the first time. I told Neil I would need it to match all the kids outfits when we take pictures. Neil was a very good sport the morning we took this pic. I got everyone dressed and then saw that Neil was wearing a red and navy plad shirt! I thought to myself, " That just won't work in the impromptu family pictures we will be taking today after church. How do I tell a grown man that he must change his shirt with out making him mad?" I don't remember what I said, but to his credit he was not too put out and made some very good clothing choices to match the family. What a great gift to give your wife on mother's day - patience and cooperation in a hair brained scheme to take a family picture when it is nap time.
