Picture Perfect Family.... YES- in pictures ONLY!!:)

The story BEHIND this awesome picture that I'm TOTALLY in love with!

This picture was taken around 4:10 on Saturday afternoon at my moms house. My friend was coming over to take our first professional pictures EVER as a family- and I wanted everyone to look good. i figured this session would go pretty well because if you can have pictures done with 3 kids 3 and under and the pure chaos that comes with it- then you can handle 3 older kids and a newborn............. BUT this time it was the "session" that went chaotic-- it was the "before" the session that went CRAZY!

15 min. before Jen, the photographer, was due at my moms house.
Chet - snoozing on the couch, not dressed in picture attire.

Dante and Ethan- in the pool, swimming!!

Erin- putting make-up on, because she wants to look pretty in the pictures (including hot red lipstick)

Mom- perfectly dressed and running around trying to get kids out of the pool, waking Chet up and rubbing off Erin's lipstick - she got away with the eyeliner as you can see in the picture.
approximately 5 min. before Jen's arrival:
Chet - frantically ironing his shirt and the boys shirts wondering why I didn't wake him earlier (always the wife's fault, huh?):)
Dante and Ethan - STILL swimming in the pool, and slowly making their way to the stairs to get out before I drag them out by their ears.
Erin- all ready for pictures!
Mom- trying to get the boys OUT of the pool and saying- just put your jeans on over your swimsuits-- she is going to be here ANY minute!
Jen arrives:
Chet- ALL dressed- picture perfect
Dante and Ethan- all dressed- picture perfect
Erin- NOW starts to throw a tantrum that she doesn't want to wear jeans but a skirt instead that will not match the pictures in the least. REFUSING to get in the family picture unless she is wearing the skirt.
Mom- thinking- "are you kidding me?"
Molly of course is a rockstar throughout!
And obviously Erin won- because as you can tell Jen strategically placed her behind me and Chet so that her skirt wouldn't show.
Jen worked her magic and we now have picture perfect family portraits!
Moral of the story: No matter how much you stress in life- it will all somehow work out-- so WHY stress?? Just realize whatever happens happens and somehow will all workout for the better:) And sometimes it just takes someone else to work their magic - but it will be worked out!
ps- check out Jen Petty Photography here and I highly recommend her.

Hey Bertie, this picture is ADORABLE, and so is your family! I can't believe you guys have FOUR kids. How do you do it!?!?! I am a SAHM to three (boys) and I feel I would officially be in the nut house if I added one more to the mix. Anyway, found your blog through facebook. I went to elementary and high school with your HILARIOUS hubby, and he commmented on my status today, and found this. Thought i'd check it out and say hi. Your family is BEAUTIFUL!

I think Limewire is simply a Peer to Peer program for file sharing. If that's right then surely you can get a virus if the person you get a file from has it. Video files do not contain viruses. Neither do mp3 or jpg files. Viruses can be find in executable files (.exe) .dll files and a few other types.
