Ana Elisa in her blessing dress:
I decided the other day that those pictures are kind of outdated, so we went to Walmart's studio and took family pictures today. They turned out okay, not great.
First of all, I completely spaced the fact that we needed to think about what we were going to wear for the pictures. So, last night when Brittney asked me what I was planning on having everyone wear I said, "Oh, yeah, you don't just walk in there with whatever you're wearing that day, do you?!" Luckily I figured out a quick fix by deciding everyone was going to wear light blue, and since all of us had something light blue, I only had to rush out and buy Ana Elisa's shirt.
Ana Elisa isn't used to going to a studio to get her pictures taken, so she got bored pretty quickly and insisted she was ready to go home (after goofing off and making funny faces at the camera for the first 15 minutes or so). Bryan wasn't very happy, he cried a lot (something he doesn't do very often). I think his stomach hurt. So, we tried to push the lady along to get done quickly. Some of the pictures turned out okay. On one of them my eyes were all wacked up and looked kind of creepy AND the lady took the picture wrong so there's black on our white background--too bad because that was the one Ana Elisa turned out great in.
When it was all said and done, Emerson said that from now on we'll just stick to taking pictures with our own camera :). I think the whole ordeal kind of stressed him out. Poor guy!
