Family pictures

After work last night I was too tired to write a blog post. There was too much to say and I wasn’t awake enough to do it.

Once I got to Spencer’s house I sat down in the study. Everyone was running around getting all prettied up for family pictures. I was so excited. At my house when we take pictures everyone jumps at the chance to be silly. We make faces and are super obnoxious. We make silly faces. We strike funny poses. Everyone also has their personal cameras. Half of the fun of family pictures is the goings on behind the scene. I was so excited!

The Anderson Family is very different from the Hales Family. We aren’t camera shy. They are. We are NOT well behaved. They are. Let’s just say that my hopes and dreams for this photo shoot were dashed. I knew things would be different. I knew that no one would pill a face (Kyle) or randomly grab someone’s head (Dedra). I knew no one would strike a pose (Me) or push someone forward last second so we looked goofy (Ryan). I knew this. I was still just hoping that someone would. Haha

They all did what they were told when they were told. It was interesting. They were all so good. Even Sam! Well he did make a face but it wasn’t during a picture. He kept making a fish face. Haha. I love me some Sam.

Everyone was able to get a picture taken with Spencer except for me. Stephen looked around and said “that’s everyone” then when the photographer left he said “Oh Gina, did you want your picture taken with Spencer too?” I was able to get a couple of pictures taken with my crappy camera. It was all I could do not to cry. I was hurt by that. When I tried to speak up I wasn’t listened to.

After everyone was changed beck into their normal clothes we had dinner. I fixed Spencer’s plate. Everyone sat around talking about the pictures and the day’s events. It was a really nice evening. I am so glad I was able to be there.

All of the pictures that I am going to post are taken on my old and crappy camera. So they are not the best. I was hoping I would be able to get some of the silliness. I have 200 pictures of them being nice. Haha.

The Hand belongs to Chris. All other awesomeness you can see faces. Haha. My bangs are awful! I want everyone to know that. I cut them WAY too short. No making fun of me. Chris and Hannah told me I should just make them into full bangs until they grow out a little. I think they look silly.

Back to business! Here a bunch of pictures that liked that were on my camera. I look forward to seeing the professional ones. :)
