if you were a school picture...

We don't generally take "school pictures". You know, that single kid, posed, nice clothes kinda thing. We're always snapping so many other random pictures of the kids, who has the time to actually stage a picture?

But...

My grandparents 50th wedding anniversary open house is coming up this weekend, and it was requested (for a little display she is making) that I submit a "school type picture" of each of my sweetie pies for her to put out on the table.

I thought great. This will be like pulling teeth. Kids...great grandma wants a picture of you for....wait! where did you go?...

But actually, they took right to it. Ooky pulled out a "fancy outfit" from the closet (size 12, not size 5) and said he was going to take pictures like he was from a magazine. Here is what we got:





Iggy picked out his own very mismatched, free spirited outfit, and wouldn't sit still for long. He was sure that every time I pointed the camera at him, he was supposed make monster faces...or scared faces...or I'm dying faces...or....

But we did get this shot, which I thought was pretty handsome.



or this one, zoomed in a bit...



Which I thought was pretty good, since the last picture I had snapped of him, the night before, was this:



How about that one for grandma's display? ;)

That first pic cracks me up!!
He looks like he has one eyebrow raised.
I like the last one, of course. :)

He does have an eyebrow raised. And is even doing a little cheek suckin' in. How very photogenic.

The end picture was late night dancing, and they decided dishtowel superhero capes would be just the thing. The Iggy realized if you pull the dishtowel up through you legs...you get mom and dad to laugh. Really hard.

Now that is just funny. I love how their personalities shine right through. That first and last ones are classic!
