decisions, decisions

You know, I'm not a fan of school pictures. I don't dress up my kids on school picture day, and I forget about the date all together on most occasions. You would think I would care, but I don't. When the picture proofs come home in the backpacks I normally check the "no thanks" box and send them back to Life touch, but this year was different. This year this was sent home.
Isn't he the sweetest?? Now I think every picture of this dream boat of mine is a winner, but this one just seems to catch his personality. Yeah, even with his hand in his mouth. What? Your kid doesn't have his/her hand is his/her mouth all the time? It even comes with the choice of black and white or sepia. Very klassy. 

Oh, I don't know what to do... If I purchase Clee's school pictures I'll have to purchase Emme's too, and I haven't even seen hers yet but I know her hair wasn't brushed all the way. You know what I'm talking about, where the top half is neatly combed and the bottom half looks something could be living in it. Sure it would be funny to buy those pictures and plaster them throughout the house, but sweet Emme wouldn't appreciate it.
Well, I do have ten days to think it through. My vote says I'll forget all about them before the deadline anyway.

Are we voting? I vote yes, how much do you need? That is a terrific picture. Hey don't they go to the same school? shouldn't you have gotten proofs at the same time? Is Emme holding out, I wonder?

@mom- I think Emme had a sub. today. That could be the reason hers didn't come.

That is a very sweet picture! My triplets are in 8th grade and I think I've only purchased school pics twice. When you fall in love with them, even when they aren't the typical, standard pose, you just have to have them! Mostly, mine come back and I laugh and say that they look like they are in pain! Sometimes they are anticipating the flash, which makes for a very funny expression.
Our picture day is next week, so we will see.

I love this one of yours...yes, you must get it! And the choice of colors is great! I hope we get that, too! :)

I buy my kids pictures every year. And then put them in a file for someday. Is that any better than not buying them? I don't think so!

But. You have to buy that of Clee. Just put it in a special file and Emme will be fine.
