Then you face the camera and tell your kids to smile, but you can't see their faces, because you're in the picture. There is no pushy lady waving her arm and trying to get their attention and yelling SMILE! (that lady is usually me). You just hit the button on the remote and say cheese. And sometimes your kids look. And sometimes they don't. The more children you have the harder it is to get a picture where everyone is looking AND smiling. In my case Witten, who is a baby and cannot be told what to do, looked for about two out of thirty pictures. And in those two pictures the girls were mad, sneezing, or just looking unpleasant.
I guess that's life. Sometimes they smile and look happy, other times they don't.
