More Joys of Twins

We went to get the kids' 2 year pictures taken last weekend and those experiences are always and adventure.  Getting pictures of 2 two-year olds that don't want to be too close to each other is actually very challenging.  I will save the good pictures for later when I can send them to some of you, but I thought I could share some of those priceless twin "get away from me" moments here.
This is the I just can't get up fast enough pose.
I love the look on Claire's face here, she is in the middle of a "I don't want to be close to him" squawk."  
Jacob just couldn't wrench his neck far enough away from her.
This is my very favorite though...we made of the huge mistake of trying to sit Jacob in front of Claire, you can see from the picture how well she took it.

To the credit of the photographers, there were some pretty good ones, and these two girls of taken pictures of my kids together before--they seem to have limitless energy and ideas, they are really great with my kids and so patient.

where do you get your pictures done? we need to go in for ours.
i love claire's "middle of a squawk" pose.

softball guy called me back today - they are having a managers meeting in a day or so and he will ask if anybody needs some awesome home-running-hitting players for their team :) and then he'll give me a call back.

Cute pictures! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Oh-and is crooked the new style-your family picture you posted seems a bit off:) I know cutting heads out of pictures is in-but is crooked in too?

I love these pictures. The mess ups are the best. I personally have a one of me picking my nose in my 4 generations picture. It is a classic that I am forever reminded of from my family.

I can't believe they're two! They're such cuties. And reasoning with two year olds is never easy so kudos to the photographers.
