Picture Tag

This is a fun photo meme that I was tagged for by Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.
Here are the instructions:

* Go to your Sixth Picture Folder then pick your Sixth Picture.

* Pray that you remember the details.

* Tag 5 others.

Here is the picture I found in my 6th folder. I thought this was a great one because I think it represents some of the things that are important to me; family and fun!

This was taken on July 4, 2007 in our back yard. Andy was going to be leaving for boot camp soon and we were trying to get a picture of all of the cousins on my side. You can imagine how hard it was to get them all sitting still, much less smiling. However - you can see who caused the problem in this picture! All the younger kids were behaving, but Aaron decided to be a wise guy!

For those of you who know my sisters or read their blogs I'll tell you whose kids these are:

bottom: Halle, Shaelyn, Arrianna

middle: Heather, Aaron, Laura

top: Nick, Andy, Katelyn, Chelsea

Terri's kids are Katelyn, Chelsea and Shaelyn

Cheri's kids are Nick, Arianna and Halle

I was only supposed to show one picture, but had to show you what happened after all the kids found out that Aaron ruined the shot:

We did have fun, and yes - I did get a good picture after a few attempts.
Now I have to pick out 5 of you to do this: (please don't feel obligated!)
Christina from An Unspoken Story
Terri from Terri's Talk
Cheri from Another Day in Paradise
Sarah from Short Stop
Jamie from Rose Cottage
