I'll share a fool proof trick with you....Shawn and I rewarded the kids with goldfish crackers after each pose they cooperated together on. I felt like a very successful mom that day by accomplishing two tasks- snack time and family pictures, all at once! Family pictures can be very scary business, you know. The Butterfly wings were Evalie's inspiration. She's a genius, her idea made this truly picture-perfect. If you look closely you will see the necklace she is wearing. It is actually the necklace that I wore on my wedding day. I'm so grateful that she asked to wear it that day because not long after it broke. Tragically, I ran it over with my car. I can't help but giggle a little bit now, even though at the time it really upset me. If you know me well, you won't be surprised that I would do something like that....so typical!
