Cousins and Photos

Julia, Hazie, Thomas, Chloe and Piper
2nd cousins

Yesterday for Easter our great-nephew, Thomas came by with his Dad to say hi.  Thomas is the grandson of Jim's brother.  It was quite fun to see them for a few minutes before they were off to another branch of the family for dinner.  They were not here too long but we did manage to get in a few photos.

Here is the interesting part about this. Yesterday morning we did a photo shoot of the girls.  They were pretty funny.  You know how it is.  40 shots and someone looks goofy in each of them.  Eyes closed, not smiling, looking around, easily distracted...think little boy in the outfield. 

Well, we only took a few photos with Thomas and all are adorable.  Solution to previous problem...  Always have a handsome older boy to get the teen girls to pay attention, look beautiful and smile with their whole face.  And since they hadn't seen Thomas in years...a little blush on the cheeks makes the color all the better as well.  It was precious.
