it's embrace the camera day---the one day of the week where you should get in a few pictures.
seriously y'all...one day a week.
we can do this!
so on tuesday i wanted to punch mr. anderson in the face. and by wednesday i was telling y'all my love for him, as we celebrated 9 years of wedded bliss.
this is married life, isn't it?
well, this is our married life anyways.
we love, we fight, we love, we fight, we fight, we fight, then we love.
well, our anniversary started off great when we both realized it was our anniversary a few hours after we got up, so we sent each other a "happy anniversary" text.
a text, people.
it's 9 years.
10 years will for sure get a "happy anniversary" face to face.
we concluded the day by taking the whole crew out to eat.
i proclaimed loudly that i was not going to make dinner on our anniversary so i don't care if we have money or not, we're going out to eat.
we sat the 5 kids at a table, and then sat ourselves plus olive at another table so we could feel like we were actually on a date.
we are rock star parents.
when we got back from dinner i wanted to score a few pictures of mr. anderson and i.
just a few. that's all i wanted.
and goodness, this was a challenge.
look...a cute one, right?
well all of our children are hiding behind us, just waiting to ambush our photos.
much like this one:
after many failed attempts at getting a photo with no kids in the background (seriously, someone was photo bombing every photo) we yelled at them and told them to get in their room, pronto.
then we put on our fake faces and posed like we were at the prom:
this next one is my personal favorite.
i envision us having this conversation:
"you're so funny"--emily
"noooo, you are"---mr. anderson
"no babe, you're the funny one"---emily
"no, it's all you"---mr. anderson
i just love that man.
well, when we're not fighting anyways.
your turn, lovelies!
here's the nitty gritty on embrace the camera:
1. take a picture of YOU with your kids, spouse, friends, etc. the point of embrace the camera is to get in front of the camera and to document a bit of yourself.
2. link up your POST, not your blog, that way we can see your embrace post.
3. link back to our blog by a text link or using our button in your post.
4. and lastly, have fun and visit each other!
leave each other lots of love---it's not easy to get in front of the camera---bravo to all of you who join us every week! your family will thank you for it one day :)
