a couple of weeks ago my sister-in-law sent me a text message that said she was in desperate need of some updated blog entries. at the time i was too busy playing all day, everyday with these people to do any blogging.
but most of them have been gone for over a week and i have no more excuses (other than being lazy and a slacker). so watch out for lots of pictures to come from our week of todd family fun (i don't even know how i am going to narrow them all down). trying to get a decent picture of everyone was a challenge. and trying to get a decent picture of my parents with their 12 grand kids was just plain funny! there was always someone looking away, making a funny face, crying etc.
we tried bribery before and during and with promises for treats after. and the group of parents behind the camera calling at their kids to "smile," "look at the camera," "put down your hands" etc. was hilarious!
with all that work i think this is the best we got, even with brandon picking his nose, sophie trying to wiggle out of spencer's arms, josh partly covered by my dad's head and logan with his hand in his mouth!
