15 Days Ago...

My family (minus my hard-working Mommy) descended on my house for an evening of calzone making, baby holding, cousin chasing, and, as always, picture taking fun.

After all, when there's a brand new cousin, there must be a new cousin picture.

We knew it would be a challenge to get a decent picture of all seven little cousins, age 7 and younger.
What with one teeny-tiny baby Nora, a cantankerous Harper, distractible Emerson, and toddling Jack, it's a miracle we even got them to hold still enough for a couple of shots.
And then a swarm of hungry, thirsty Houston mosquitos descended on the group, and we knew our picture-taking moments were numbered.

Finally, after 10 minutes, 3 cameras, several hundred pictures, lots of bribery, and a little photoshop magic...
Seven cousins.

Everytime I see a picture of Harper and Zane it looks like a reverse-aged picture of us as kids.

That's some great Photoshop! :) You are brave to just attempt...I do it professionally and cringe at 7 children!
