2011 Thurston Family Photo

We tried to do family pictures again this year... Can I say dysfunctional Family! I asked a friend to come snap pictures for us and that it wouldn't take very long since my kids are all grown, I told her the only problem we would have is the Adult looking at the grand kids instead of the Camera. Boy was I wrong.  See the three on the end together? Well apparently they still can't stand together without the boys giving their sister a hard time. So this is like the very first shot we got without time of finishing the setup I wanted for pictures. I think if I had the strength to strangle one of my kids, this would have been that day. It took me a good week before I could decide if I even like any of the pictures even a little bit. No fault of Amy, but because of the one who thinks their the funniest one in the family. After a few tries and lots of time I finally let Amy go home, she had two kids sitting in the car the whole time patiently waiting for this very short photo shoot. Then I took some myself, and then had MaKayla's friend snap some too. He had a hard time holding the camera still so we got some camera shake going on. But here is what we ended up with. Maybe after all the threats to my loved ones, next year's picture will work.

My most beautiful Grand Daughters!
This was suppose to be a photo shoot of the girls together. 

 The happiest one of all, Lydia

  Andi wouldn't hold still for 2 sec. 
We feed her too many fruit snacks while her mom curled her hair. And no way we we're going to get them in the picture together.
