Pictures for the Weekend: Family pics 2010 (for reals this time)

Filed under: Family, Personal, Pictures for the Weekend — llcall @ 5:56 pm

My dear friend Kaila told me that my first installment of family pictures was actually a bit comical.  I can’t remember exactly how she put it but something to the effect that there was this couple, or at least the arms and legs of a couple, periodically interrupted by a random baby crawling through their pictures.  Hopefully, they weren’t awkward-family-photos-strange, but just in case, I’ll hit you with a few more traditional FAMILY photos today.

If you’ve known me for a long time, you’ve no doubt seen my mouth open that wide in about a bazillion pictures, but I defy anyone to find a photo of Neal with such an open mouth as this:

He’s either REALLY happy or he just threw his back out.

The next picture reminds me that a shout-out is due to my fabulous sister-in-law Rish, whom I talked into cutting and layering my hair, even though she had never cut hair before (!) and I had such a fussy baby I had to hold her squirmy little body on my lap the whole time.

Nice work, right?!

How’d we do at looking like a “real” family, Ms. Brown?



  1. I loved your first installment! I love an excess of appendages any time! But I also love these, and great job SIL on the hair cut!

  2. I thought the appendage pictures were…creative. Fun too. These were very cute though. Whoever cut your hair actually did a pretty good job, but your gorgeous hair color would surely overshadow any imperfections. Addison is a cute little munch, as always!

  3. Favorite: the third picture, with you and Addison looking at the camera and Neal looking at you guys. Classic and great. But I’m crazy about the appendage shots as well. I thought they were artsy fartsy. In a good way. =)

  5. I love all the pics, but I have to say Neal with his mouth open wide is a highlight! Your hair looks great!

  6. These are very cute; thanks for sharing! Parenthetically, I like how even the more “traditional family photos” still consist of wide-open mouth shots and none with you and Neal both looking at the camera. That amuses me. 🙂 And, your hair looks fabulous!
