A series of pictures: a typical family photo session

It's a weekday afternoon, the sheets are in the washing machine, so we're all cuddled in bed, tangled in a ton of different random blankets.
Steve is studying. Boo.

Me: "Hey! Let's take a picture since we're all right here!! Ok, one, two, THREE!"

Me: "Oops, I cut off your head. And you don't look very happy. But I look cute!! Let's try again."

Me: "One...two...three..."

Me: "Oh! I cut off both of our heads!! You do it this time!"

Me: "Babe, you covered the flash. And you're not really smiling. Do it again."

Me: "Oops!! You cut off Cole's head! One more time!"

Me: "We both look weird. And we both have double chins."

Me: "Ok, just one more time!"

Me: "Mmmm, I don't like this one either."

Steve: "Lauren!! I think this is as good as it's gonna get!"

Me: "Fine, go back to studying. I'll take pictures of the both of you."

Me: "So cute! You guys are studying together!!"

Me: "Look up and smile this time!"

Steve: "Ok, Lauren, I think that's enough."

Me: "Just a couple more.."

Steve: "Seriously Lauren!! That's enough!!"

Steve: "LAUREN!!!!"

Me: "K, I'm done.....almost."

Me: "Ok, I'm done. This one's perfect." :)
