A frame is waiting on the bookshelves in Abigail and Gabriel's room. It has been waiting for weeks now. Waiting for a "good" picture of the two of them together to fill it.
When we got home from church yesterday - while they were still looking spiffy - I decided to try to grab a "good" picture. They are 1 and 3-years olds, so I know my standards can't be too high. But I would prefer each subject be looking at me...and smiling. And considering how much they truly do love one another, I would love for them to be hugging, or have their arms around one another.
We ended up with a couple of real contenders...and a bunch of funny out-takes.
Here is our photo shoot, in order, unedited:
|I laid Gabriel's clothes out for church on Saturday night, but that bow-tie is a dead giveaway as to who actually helped him get dressed Sunday morning...and added his own touch during the process.|
|Good...but they aren't hugging|
|One of the two finalists...in my book|
That will be a very happy and a very sad day, all at the same time.
