I hired a friend of mine to do some family pictures for us and I was really pleased with how they turned out! She does really nice work. Our only problem was Israel! He is usually SO laid-back, but he had been teething for about three days and was terribly out of sorts.... So what did this all-natural mama do out of desperation to get a decent family picture??? Gave him an M&M we had in our car from the leaders retreat!! That's why he looks like he was sucking on something in these pictures - because he was. I really should post at least one of him balling. They were memorable too!
