Family days areeeeee awesomeeeee( a la Dj Lance Rock)

Saturday we all gathered at my parents house for the family pictures for the calendar we are making for my Granny’s 83rd birthday on February 14th.

My mom decided we should all wear black long sleeve tops and jeans for the pictures. I asked the manager of my apartment building if she would take the pictures for us. She does photography as a hobby. She took our pictures for our family reunion in 2010 and they came out wonderful.

Everything started at 11 and for the most part, it went off without a hitch. That is a miracle considering we have 12 little kids to keep in line and 7 of them under the age of 3. We didn’t know it would be over 80 degrees outside in freaking January but we rolled with it.

Here are some the results( i say some because there are over 100 pictures in total). . .

We took individual family pictures 1st

Then just the siblings(minus my youngest sister, she had to work)

Then us grown kids with our parents

Then just the Queen and King of the Clan 🙂

The my pops wanted just his kids in a picture with him

Then our entire group came together for this spectacular photo!!! Love it!

We were done with pictures and everyone disbanded! lol

After the pictures my dad ordered pizza and we just hung out the rest of the day. Minus my little sister everyone was there. I can’t tell you when the last time was that we were ALL together like that and I love it. I can’t wait until we can do something like this again.

  1. Great pics! I was confused at first when I saw your bestie in the pic and was like oh she’s her sister too! I have friends like that too. They’re just in the family. lol

    • Thanks. Most people don’t have besties as close as mine. Everyone just assumes she’s one of my actual sisters unless we say something because that’s how we treat her.

  2. I love multigenerational photos!! We’ve done it on my side of the family, now we just have to get CDub’s whole family together.

  3. I like seeing generations of a family together. You don’t always realize how powerful that is until you create your own little family.

    I didn’t realize you had that many brothers and sisters! Whoa! I always get tripped out by that. It almost seems like our parents generation was the last one to do the big family thing. Now, if you have 3 kids that seems like a “big” family. I personally don’t know anyone gunning for 4 kids.

    I tagged you in meme on my blog!

  4. We desperately need to do a family portrait. I may try to steal this idea and get my nieces and nephews together to do some photos for my MIL.

    Looks like you guys had a great time. Your parents look like they are very nice! Ask your mama if she needs another daughter.

    • My parents are the best!

      the one with the red hair( my bestie) is their spare daughter but I can ask them if they want one more lol
