Family Picture Time... Ugh!

I think we are getting past the point where we can use the camera's timer to take a family picture. Watching the blinking light doesn't cut it for at least 2/3 of the Felker Family. I can get some cooperation (sometimes) when I'm behind the camera, working hard for a smile. See? These turned out pretty cute on Easter:
Mallory gave me a nice, toothy grin.

And Drew gave me a blue, toothy grin. Thank you Easter Bunny!

Elizabeth always offers a diva pose.

Ross is pretty easy going. He's usually game for my camera craziness.

Aside from the blue teeth and Ring Pop, I think this one turned out pretty well.

A bit goofy, but fun.
Here's what I'm talking about with the camera's timer:
Mr. Uncooperative, Drew, started off not wanting to humor me with a nice family portrait.

I had the audacity to fix Mallory's bow. What was I thinking?

I told everyone to get ready, but I wasn't ready myself! Mallory is trying to squirm out of my arms. And Drew is apparently trying to sneak in a "purple nurple" on Ross.

Oops! That flash caught us off gaurd.

Sadly, this was our best one. I'm trying to tell myself that Mallory was just trying to smile, not shriek. Um, yeah. That's it.
