In Real Life.....

Every so often we get the opportunity to take a family picture.
It doesn't happen very often,
since the hubs or I generally are the ones manning the camera.
But every now and then, an event or family in town pulls us from behind the camera.
Or they aren't smiling.......

Or has a weird look on their face......

Or it just looks stiff and posed.

So the other day all 5 of us happen to be sitting on the couch doin' our thang and it hit me.
I told the hubs, this would make a great family picture.
It totally represented our family. Each family member was totally themselves,
doing what they do.
I told the hubs to set the camera up on a timer and capture it.
It is now my favorite family photo. :)

Uh, I just love it. :)
Doing what we do.
Brynnie reading her book, me playing with cookie, daddy fooling around on his precious iPad, and Bells cuddled up her daddy watching him.

My favorite part?
It was a captured moment. (sort of)
No posing the girls properly, worrying about if they were looking, trying to get each of them to smile.
Just us, doing what we do.
Love, love, love. :)
