If You Ever Wondered....

If you ever wondered what it would be like to do a photo sitting at JCPenny with all the grandchildren, you are in luck. I just happened to hit record on my camera when the chaos was in full swing. You might think this is funny, you might think this is sad, either way, it's a snapshot into what it would be like to photograph 10 children ages:
5 mo,
11 mo
2 1/2
4
4 1/2
5
7 1/2
10
11
12

Most of the footage is of my niece, little M, who is going through a stage of being scared of the photo studio. We offered everything from candy to trips to disneyland (that one was my idea and I got major stink eye from my brother). With out further delay....




After all that, I'm pleasantly surprised that the picture turned out as good as it did! The young little potographer did a great job. After MANY unpleasant experiences at JCP, I'm happy to report, this one went fairly smoothly considering all she had to work with!

Behold, the fruit of our labor...



If you look really closely, you can see a little piece of candy in the hands of sweet little M!

oh my WORD, this entire video makes me laugh super hard and at the same time feel so sorry for my little love... Poor Maddie, she probably thinks I was so mean for making her take that picture! Thank goodness for gum & candy canes in Auntie's purse!!! This post is PRICELESS!!!!!
