Group Shots are always IMPOSSIBLE!

I've always wished for the perfect picture of all the cousins together, but it never seems to happen with this side of our family. We had great success over Thanksgiving with our Chatterton cousins, but this Brinkley/Marshall bunch seems to bring out the worst in at least one person most of the time.

Everyone thinks Uncle Tim is funny except for Nate. It got much, much worse after this!

Now it's Adam not cooperating.

And Nate again.

Oh yeah! Now it's Christian's turn.

And this is the only "smile" Christian could come up with in the middle of his major tantrum.

And it's been that way for years! That's Abby in the purple on the verge of a major meltdown because she wanted to hold Christian and Emma got to hold him instead. To see a history of our attempts, click here!

This is too funny! And I don't even know you (I am a friend of Heidi's!) My daughters are all grown, and it is so much fun to look back on those days and remember what it was like! Those days are so precious (even tho it doesn't seem like it as you are in the thick of things!) Keep up the great "mommy" work!
