I know it's early - but I'm getting ready to go visit my sister Deanna in Ireland and I'm not sure I'll get around to posting these when I get back. By the way - I've decided that taking your own kids' pictures is similar to being their violin teacher.  Hmmm.... I actually briefly considered going back to JC Penneys after this session with four of the most wiggly kids on the planet! 

AND... I have a new respect for that weird high-pitched sound all the JC Penneys photographers make with their mouths to get kids' attention.  I can't quite figure out how to do it, but I remember it was more effective than mommy-yelling.    (Kayla is cackling.  She thinks that sentence is funny.)
