Just a quick little bit about how very different my children are when it comes to a camera. Well, I mean, they're VERY different in just about every way, but it really is evident when a camera appears. **disclaimer, all pictures below are not the best representation of my cute kids.** See, Maggie can be happy as a clam, singing, playing, smiling, happy, and then the SECOND I pull the camera out to capture said happy moments, she turns into a complete sour puss. She refuses to have her picture taken, or she pouts, or she just keeps attacking me and insisting on "seeing" what I've taken of her. She wants to see before I've even had a chance to take a picture. It's so frustrating, as I never get a good pic of say, her beautiful new Sunday dress, or her silly playing, or whatever. Mostly i have shot after serious or grumpy shot. UGH! Max on the other hand....he can be completely bawling and the moment I pull the camera out, he stops, he stares and then he smiles. It's a fascinating little phenomenan. I swear, I love this kid so much, because for all of Maggies grumpy, he counteracts it with a ton of happy. But overall they're both pretty close to perfect. ::smiles::

Coming in from church, I mentioned I wanted to take a pic, she threw down and said NO. So, sorry, none of you can truly take in the gorgeousness that is her new dress. A dress i got for FOUR DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS I might add. Thank you Target super clearance and serendipity.

An example of her wanting to "see" before i've even had a chance to take a pic.

Totally been bawling, I set him in the chair, took out the camera, and this was his first shot, he's calmed down and clearly thinking about what he's seeing.

Then, he busts out a smile. Seriously, I love this kid. I guess HE has to be my model cash cow, since Maggie refuses to oblige. Quick, get this kid an agent. hehe
Well, tonight is the big first performance of workshop one. Wish us luck. And with that, I MUST get the kids together and in the car and off to Jennys so i'm not late to dress rehearsal.
Grumps and smilers,

Thanks for the pictures. It's so funny how they each come with their own individual personalities, isn't it?
And Jere looks so much smaller in that picture, but I can't really tell because of the angle. Way to go, dude!

I totally understand that feeling with the camera. I swear I have a million videos of "come on do that thing you were just doing O". Almost all her pictures are taken as she's running at the camera to grab it. Why can't she be a good little monkey and perform???

I still think your kids are adorable. I like a good sourpuss picture :)

(ps-sorry for the computer isn't cooperating today)
