making good on a threat

We have one tradition that we do on the first day of school every year.
(unless you count spending hundreds of dollars on mandatory school supplies like boxes of tissue, dry erase markers, index cards, red pens, ect. ect. a tradition)

Sorry, still feel like ranting about all that.

Our tradition? We take a picture of each kid in front of the fireplace.

And wow! My kids love it!

NOT!

I blogged a while back about taking pictures of my kids and getting that "look". The "are you done taking my picture yet cuz this is soooo stupid and such a waste of my all important teenage time" look. You can refresh your memory by clicking here.

So today I'm making good on a threat......


You don't smile nice for mom's camera......


if you give me that "look".....

I'm gonna blog about you.




this one is a little better....



that's a nice smile....


Uggghhh!.....this one is still not very impressive....but it's as good as I could get.

Look at those poor "I've been staying up till 2 am all summer and sleeping in until noon and I didn't listen to my mom and go to bed at a normal time over the last few days to get back on a normal schedule so I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night" red eyes.

Maybe next time they will smile nice for their mama!

A new threat to make them behave, "Don't make me blog about you, 'cause you know I will!"

I have the same first (and last) day of school picture taking tradition! My oldest is starting her senior year! At the end of this school year it will be very fun to go back and compare all those photos.

If you don't mind, I'm going to steal your threat - do as I say or you'll end up in my blog! Love it!

I didnt get to see the TTW and I havent read it. I actually read a review of the movie by someone who HAD read it and it made me want to watach it.

You should put your back to school tradition here...even though it's not much...I need more participation, so it's all about me. LOL.
