The things is Andrew loves to goof off in pictures. I've explained to him that its hard enough getting nine people all looking at the camera, smiling, and looking intelligent all at the same time without having someone mess up pictures on purpose. When he was younger before we had a digital camera, I used to charge him a quarter for every picture he ruined.
So, without further adieu, follow me through our Andrew-caused family photo rejects of the last five years.
Good thing for him other people goofed up this picture too (but not on purpose)
2008 - We took this picture with a tripod. When I saw the picture, I asked the girls, "Why didn't any of you mention that Andrew was hanging off the tree." They claimed they didn't know. So I asked, "How could you not know?" Anna said, "But Mom, you told us to look straight ahead."
Part of the problem is Andrew usually stands in the back row so we don't know he's goofing around. If we use a tripod, there's no actual photographer to growl at him to cooperate.
2007 - It's a little hard to see in this picture. But he pulled his long hair to the front and gave himself a mustache.
This next one isn't as bad as some of the others. However there was no stick growing beside Andrew. He grabbed one at the last minute and put it there.
