Since the last time we were in Washington for Christmas (2009) we have had several new additions to the family. Emily and Shane got married and Charlie, Lincoln, and Ivy were born. On the last full day we were there, we went out to were Emily and Shane had their Washington reception and took a few family pictures. It was a little chilly, but the kids were good sports for the most part...Well for about 30 minutes and then the crying and whining began. Luckily we were able to get a quite a few good pictures in before the meltdowns began. We got all of these pictures on Rachel and Sean's camera (which I am extremely jealous of). They turned out really good.
|The whole clan.|
Before we went out to the spot where we took the family pictures, we tried to get a few pictures of the cousins all sitting together on the couch. Here is what we got:
It was quite the process. As entertaining as it was watching the chaos of the children on the couch, it was even more entertaining watching all the parents trying to get their kids to smile and look at the camera. Above this couch there is a mirror and in the unedited shots you can see all the parent's crazy faces. We will have to post a full picture sometime.
Here is another full family shot and some individual family shots:
After we got back from taking family pictures, Megan snapped a few shots of the boys.
During the family pictures, Sean decided to share his Christmas present with all of us and we put on some fake mustaches. Good times.
Here are a couple shots of just the boys and girls:
I am pretty lucky to have married into such a cool family.
