An October Pinterest War: Battle 2 Results

familypicsfinalI’m not sure if something’s in the air or what, but Becky Wade and I are managing to put out some respectable end results!

Last week’s messy bun was not nearly as disastrous as we thought, and we had some really fun, amazing participation from awesome readers like yourself!

And this week’s family picture is kinda cute too! This happened to be a perfect weekend for the Gansherts to tackle this challenge, since we were in Wisconsin for a wedding and Ryan’s mom is an excellent photographer.

But lest we fool you too greatly, here are some outtakes (as well as some more reader participants jumping into the fray).


Care to play along?

Please do!

I’m giving away THREE books as incentive! All you have to do is post your own rendition of the photo above to my Facebook page or Becky’s Facebook page by midnight Wednesday, and you’ll be entered to win one of the books (a choice of my books or two other brand new ones). If you’re sitting there thinking, “But wait a minute. I’m not married and I don’t have kids.” No problem! We encourage creativity! If that includes using animals or inanimate objects (or pictures within a picture), then so be it!Β 

We’ll announce the winners on Friday and our next Pinterest battle. And I do promise, this one is sure to be a disaster! It involves pumpkins and romance…..have fun guessing!

Let’s Talk: Do you have fond memories or un-fond memories of family pictures?

    I was just about to say so : Y’all are too cute!!!!

    1. Aw, thanks, Ganise!

  2. Ahhh, fun! πŸ™‚ Love the photos. A few years ago we took a huge family photo with my mom’s side of the family–both indoor and outdoor shots. It was an ordeal, but a pretty fun one. Best moment was when we did one with just my grandparents and all the grandkids, some of whom were super young at the time…and right before the photographer snapped the photo, three of the little kids fell off the bench they were sitting on…so we have this photo of them falling and everyone else laughing…hilarious. πŸ™‚

    1. I want to see that!!

  3. I love it! The pictures all turned out SO cute! It’s doesn’t help that your families are all just as cute. *gag*. πŸ˜‰

    1. No gagging allowed, Ms Herringshaw! πŸ™‚

  4. Family photos are always a challenge for my group. Typically, my son is perfect in every shot. (Notice him posing obediently in the outtake). My older one complains and objects. (Notice her absence in the outtake). And my little one checks out and doesn’t want to participate after the first minute and a half. By the time any photo shoot is over, my husband or I have usually growled, “Look at the camera and smile right now!” through clenched teeth.

    With this shot we had some initial confusion over where my husband and I were supposed to put our legs (??). After that, my family managed this shot without too much growling. I think because the pose was funny and the clothing so casual that nobody had to get dressed up. Fun!

    1. Us too, Becky!!!! At first, we had NO CLUE what to do with our legs. We had some awkward moments where Ryan didn’t look quite….masculine. LOL!
