I love this picture!
While Daryl and his brother and sisters were putting together a slide show for their parents we realized that it would be great to have a picture of Beau and Joy with their 5 great-grandchildren. Since we all go to church together, it seemed like the best time to snap the shot would be on a Sunday morning.
Well.... you know how some Sunday mornings just don't go very smoothly? This was one of those Sundays for the two-year-old people in our family. First, we tried to get a shot with just the kids, Pappy, and JoJo. But, no luck. No amount of silliness and jumping from Minnie could convince them to sit on the couch. They needed their parents that day.
Then, Abbie had the best idea -- everyone get in the picture. She handed her camera to me, and before anyone could fall apart, I snapped this picture.
The only thing that might make someone wonder what was going on is Bennett's turned head. He just wanted to watch the fun!
This may be one of my favorite pictures ever. The few minutes before the shot was crazy, hectic, please sit on the couch, why are you sad, everyone smile, "LOOK AT MINNIE"! Then you have this split second in time.
I love these people!
