A couple of Sundays ago I decided to keep the kids in their church clothes and get a few pictures of them outside on our way up to my parents' house. Mostly I wanted to get pictures of George because, hello, he had a plaid suit coat on. Pearl is just a bonus :).
When Georgie wore this suit to church the first time he asked me if it was an "old man coat." I thought it was funny that he picked up on that. My favorite part of this photo (besides George's over-smile and Pea's sweet smile) is Pearlie's arm up on her brother's shoulder. She likes him.
I stayed in my skirt and forced John to put back on a shirt and tie (he rips off his suit as soon as he gets home from his meetings) because I thought we could maybe get a few shots of all of us. What I didn't bargain for was the freezing cold. John thought I was crazy (and perhaps irresponsible) to have my children outside, so we literally only took 4 pictures. All right in a row. But we got a couple that we can work with, I think. One of these days I just need to get a real person to come snap pictures of us. It is quite the challenge to get Pearl to look at an immobile, mute camera.
This one wins, I think.
Can you tell how cold it was?
