Family portraits

This is the first time we have ever gotten our family portraits professionally done. We had our family pictures taken when Jacob was barely one year old but that was all taken outside (candid shots) and they didn't charge us for it since it was done by a friend of a friend. We never had an opportunity to take our portraits indoor, under studio lighting and all in not-so-natural poses. So why now? We got a (Groupon) deal, duh. Our intention was to use one of the portraits for our family Christmas card but Tyson was severely sick and his face looked horrible. Now it's been over a month since and even though he's over his illness, his face never fully recovered. I honestly don't remember when his face was ever clear except the day he was born. Damn eczema! The Groupon was about to expire within a few days so we had no choice but to Just Do It™.

Ignore Jacob's not-so-natural left hand placement.

This is actually a natural position for the boys, particularly when they're wrestling sans baby.

"Peek-a-boo," said Andrew's hair in the back.

His picture smiles look less fake now.

"Whatcha lookin' at?"

Lynn with the people that grew in her belly.

We need one more to complete our basketball team.

No complaints. I like this one. Well, minus my big head.

    Yeah, I was a little hesitant when the photographer said to lie on the ground but it turned out pretty good.

    Just be glad we didn't end up like this:
