We almost missed the annual Easter family pictures. And that would have been a shame. We’ve been doing a picture in our Sunday-best every Easter morning for as long as I can remember.
We had no time to spare before church (Easter egg hunt, Easter baskets, and cooking Easter dinner before we left was just too much to handle) and then we came home from church in two shifts. I made the kids in my car stay in their church clothes until the second car-load came home just so we could grab pictures.
I’m not sure what some people were laughing about in the beginning. I do know that Twizzler, my how-did-he-get-so-tall 13-year-old, was trying to sneak bites of a donut in between shots. I caught him a few times (including the shot of the donut when everyone else decided to be silly and take a bottom shot.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get one of all 7 of us together, but I made sure that Mom and Dad each snuck in for a shot each.
Next year? My oldest will probably be at school during Easter, enjoying the holiday with my mom and dad. I’m a little sad about that…and that made these pictures all the more important.
What have you been up to this week?
