Too Cute

Would I be the sort of woman who would be so bogged down with work I would be unable to write a witty yet deeply thought out post for two days in a row?

Would I be the sort of gal who would be so hyped from stealing my sons Halloween candy that I was completely unable to sit and type?

Would the fact that my boss keeps talking to me while I write make it impossible to be inspired with my usual brilliance?

Would all of that make me take the easy way out and post some sickeningly sweet pictures of my children dressed up looking cute for Halloween ?

Would it?

Nope!

I tried I really tried. I would love nothing more than posting one of those ridiculously adorable photos and receive a page of "Too cute!" comments

But no. Its not happening.

No matter how hard I try my kids always seem to look like this.


or this



Out of focus with B in the process of wrestling Little S down to the ground to make her cry.

Sigh

Maybe next year.

I completely understand. We had planned to carve pumpkins again last night and after we spent what seemed like hours trying to get that perfect picture of the boys in costume, I was too tired to drag the pumpkins out!! LOL

Kristin H. said...

Yeah. Still cute from me, too.

Ali said...

Yeah, still too cute. You just have to squint a bit. Hehe.

Ren said...

I know how you feel. I'm always jealous of those people that get amazing pictures of their kids. Nope not me, I have to hire a professional (or beg my friend Jess) to take them.

They are still TOO CUTE though!

I think they are still great! Any picture is better than no picture!!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Cute cute and cute!
You'll be glad you have wrestling and crying pictures when they get older. I used to swat at my hubby for taking a photo during a crying bout or temper tantrum (couldn't he put that down and help?) but now I love to look back on the few we have.
Maybe we're weird, but it helps us remember the whole story!

Even blurry, they are adorable.

And we watched The Great Pumpkin on TV this week. You missed it. I'm sorry.

I have of yet to get ONE nice picture of all of my kids together (costumes aside), and my twins are now two. I'm wonder what age will make them able to sit still and smile for the camera...

My Wonderful Men said...

How about so totally cute? :)

Heather of the EO said...

You're a kick, lady! I just clickety clicked on your comment on suburb sanity and gazed over these lovely latest posts, enjoying myself and smiling. Yup, tis true.

I think the pics are perfect. Just as they should be, all messy and beautiful at the same time.

And your Halloween tale was terrifying. I can't bring myself to think ahead like that-I had my first son at 30. You know, SO OLD. :)

Jannie said...

Mine are a little out of focus too but better to have blogged a slightly foggy foto than never to have flogged at all.

Veronica said...

Mmmm Halloween loot. I don't think it's fair that we don't celebrate Halloween.

tiff said...

Awwww, they are too cute.

April said...

But they ARE too cute!

gizmogirl said...

They are very cute!! I love the first picture especially.

I don't know what kind of camera you're using, but if you have the option to increase the shutter speed, try that (or many point & shoot cameras have a "kids & pets" icon that will do that for you).

Kmommy said...

Aw :) they are sooo cute!! Yes, even blurry ;)
