Serenity Now

I thought it would be nice to take a photo of Grandma with her granddaughters dressed up in all their Easter finery. Is it asking too much for people to sit still for five seconds with open eyes and a normal smile? Why, yes, Kim. Yes, it is. 

Quiet on the set! Easter Portrait . . . Take One! What the . . . ? CUT! Someone get those two to open their eyes, please.

Okay, let's try this again. Easter Portrait . . . Take Two! For crying out loud . . . CUT!! Now the little one has her eyes closed.

This is it. C'mon now! Let's get serious. Easter Portrait . . . Take Three! Wait . . . what are you doing? CUT!!!!!

Please, people! Quiet on the set! Easter Portrait . . . Take Four! Annnnd . . . CUT!!!! Why in the world are those two girls tilting their heads like that?

Let's try this one more time. Easter Portrait . . . Take Five! Okay, girls, give us a great big smile! Whoa! Not that big! I said, not that big of a smile! Tone it down! You look insane! Hey! Toothless kid!! You look crazy! CUT!!!!!!

Places! Easter Portrait . . . Take Six! Alright, girls, lookin' good . . . wait a minute! Did you not hear what I just said about toning it down? CUT!!! Someone wipe that enormous grin off the kid in the middle.

Beautiful! Hold it right there, girls! I think we've got it! Easter Portrait . . . Take Seven! Hold that smile . . . hold it . . .

Oh, no. You've got to be kidding me. CUT!!!!!!!

OH, I missed your blog and your humor so much Kim. You crack me up. What a funny post! And so true.

btw, thanks for your volcano pic compliment. I have no idea how to copyright it, but yes I did take the pics. I am going to post some more on my blog at some point. :)
