"Let's try that again."

We decided to try a "nice" photo shoot for mother's day, and these are what most of the pictures looked like...what did I honestly expect with two toddler boys?

The "stranglehold" on the little brother...

It is a bit reminiscent of that website Awkward Family Photos.

Yes...those are marshmellows in their mouths. Bribery is the key my friend.

Except that in this case, it backfired because all I had
as we were running out of the house, were the Jumbo marshmellows.
Hence the numerous chewing pictures. It took them hours to get through those things.

(Note to self: get the mini-marshmellows next time).

They didn't enjoy this for long...

...aaannnd we're done.

Could. Not. Get. Him. To. Smile.

Fortunately, after hours of pain and marshmellows, we got some usable photos.

Here is the money shot.

...hopefully next year will go a bit smoother, and less chewy.

I was laughing so hard when I saw these- luckily I got the good version first but the others are classics. Remember our Christmas photos?
