My SIL Elizabeth, of Eternity Scarf fame, sent me this link to Awkward Family Photos - Mother's Day edition. Some are totally gross, others are hilarious. I would like to add one of Dean's favorite photos of the family, which he carries in his wallet, I believe. I had a coupon for a free sitting at Walmart, and we didn't have a family picture with Lucas yet, because he was only a few months old, so I figured I'd use it to get a nice portrait for Dean to have. He was working, so he couldn't be in it.
I very carefully picked out our clothes, and was delighted that Drew and I both had yellow shirts! I picked Lucas's fanciest outfit, but I am not a fru-fru type of woman, so there were no precious John-John's or whatever those fancy smocked outfits are called. What we ended up with was an awful hair style on my pale makeup-less face, a too-large fake smile on Drew, who looks as if they threatened him with some sort of punishment, and a baby monkey from the zoo.
