How to get REAL smiles

Group pictures are always fun.

My kids love them.

But I don't have to tell YOU that. You can tell by the expressions on their happy little faces. Right?

By the way they all face the camera, open up their eyes and smile. Right?

I finally figured out a way to get them all to look at the camera and give me a REAL smile.

Slipping on the ice and falling on one's rear while backing up to take the picture - works like a charm. And yes indeed, I had the presence of mind to snap pictures on my way down. That's just how I roll. Actually how I roll, slip, fly through the air and land on my tush. WHILE taking pictures.

Even the snowman thought it was funny.


  1. Oh, my, Wendy, that is so funny!! The look on Oliver and Sammy's faces - priceless!!

  2. LOL!! I can just see this happening in my mind lol! Our demise is always funny to them, huh? I love how absolutely entertained they look :/ lol

  3. ROFL, Wendy....that is so funny. I do love the genuine smiles though :-D
