embrace the camera: dancing edition.

it's good to take pictures with you and your kids. which is why i love my BFF's emily's embrace the camera challenge...because i don't take these pics with the kids often enough.

and it's good to make a fool of yourself so your kids will know that you had fun together. occasionally.(this is layne trying to use his hands to contort his face. i don't need hands, it just comes naturally)

admit that you're jealous of my hot pink pants.and ya, i cheated on this challenge and used some pics from when i did my fashion show of bargains. go with it.

  3. I think your moves are more reminiscent of cheerleading :-)

    It truly is my pleasure and like I told her it is the least I can do.

  11. thanks for the reminder to stop and be silly with my crazies. sometimes i get waaaay too caught up in how crazy they are making me to just join in the chaos.

  12. i have been called a cheerleader and a drill teamer. haters gotta hate!

  13. you guys should actually see her try to be a ballerina. h.i.l.arious. you're face is too pretty in these pictures.

    you have to really let loose james.

    which means 'white man's overbite'. that way we really know you're serious and you don't care because you're truly DANCING!

  15. again, emily and audrey, you guys are obviously jealous of my ballerina moves(i need to make a video showing my skills) and my outfit and sick faces.

    it's hard to be a blogger, these days with such comments. you know that means i'm gonna have to embarrass you on facebook. prepare your hearts.

  16. I'm with Heather. this embrace the camera needed some video footage. Now we know where Layne gets his sweet dance moves!

  17. you needed to throw in the firemarshall bill face... or is that emily's specialty? anyway, i love that you're silly, it's refreshing. and i'm sure your kids appreciate more than you'll ever know. especially when they get older and they have blackmail photos to throw back at you when you pull out your photos of them nekked to their future spouse.
    love, jenn

  26. bring on the video, please. that would complete a bucket list request - a jami dance off! i'm waiting ...

    p.s. please include all the oldies and goodies. i am not familiar with the "white man's overbite" but i'm poised and ready to view.

  27. You're so cute! But, the lingering question I have is how in heck do you get your adorable photos so glam vintage? Is this a setting on your camera or an editing trick I know nothing of?
