A Portrait of an Average Family


We took advantage of having everyone together on Christmas Day to grab a family picture after church.  We tried to catch everyone before they changed clothes, but Bethany had already rushed upstairs and put on her comfy clothes.  She wasn't too happy about changing back into her church dress -- so I didn't stress over it.  (That, my friends, is the difference between a "well-seasoned" mom and a young, idealistic mom!)  ;)


You might like this picture -- where we appear to be a nice, normal, "average" family of twelve!  ;)
  




But, appearances can be deceiving!  :)

So, maybe you prefer this picture where we went for the "group hug!"  I think this pose reveals our true colors!  ;)




So, which one do you like best??

I vote for the group hug photo, but I am a sucker for more of the fun/silly photos. As a young mom it is nice to have a well-seasoned mom’s blog to reference, I am slowly learning to let the little things go. You have a gorgeous family, you are truly blessed.

You have a beautiful family and I love both pictures. It must be quite a mission to get all the family together for a photo especially now that they're older and not all living at home. (Reminder to self to make an effort to get a family photo when we're all together.) Which one will you be displaying?
