Wordful Wednesday

If you don’t hear from me for awhile, I’m about to reveal why. I could very well have just signed a death wish by posting this picture. Yet I just couldn’t resist.

You see, Jeff hates having his picture taken. He especially hates candid ones. In crowded places. While he’s walking.

And I know it. Yes, I know it. That’s why I love this picture so much.

It’s just so heartwarming. My hunk being a good daddy and looking at me so endearingly. What’s NOT to love?

    Neil says

    Love it! My husband is photo-phobic, too … which makes it hard since I’m a total shutter-bug and always have a camera with me.

    Tiaras & Tantrums says

    Gorgeous – kids yes – hubby – I won’t say – I dont’ want a punched nose (just kidding).
    Great shot – why are hubbies this way? mine too!!!

    What effect did you do on the photo?
    I love it!
    He should not be camera shy in the least. What a wonderful Dad with two beautiful boys. I can see why you love this picture.

    Lindsay says

    That's too funny. Same goes for my hubby – however do you notice how there are always WAY more pics of hubby with kids than with mommy & kids?? a Sad truth..

    stop by sometimes – you have something over at my place. šŸ™‚

    You are so dead meat!!! The look he’s giving you just slays me!

    My icky body image is the whole reason I have chosen to be the family photographer! lol

    Connie says

    So funny…he is very photogenic!! Luke hates to see ghis photo on my blog as well…if he would ork on his picture face he might not mind so much!!! Ha ha, had to say it…I did!!

    Honey Mommy says

    I have the hardest time getting photos of my husband… or at least ones that look good! The candid ones are best because he doesn’t know how to look relaxed if he knows the camera is there.

    p.s. I am the winner of the Twisted Silver, right? :o)

    Susan says

    Good for you for posting it anyway! The awwww factor makes it worth it.

    I don’t have this problem. I am always the one that never makes it into pictures.

    Casey's trio says

    HA! too funny…one day he will look back on that picture and love it:) My hubby hates pictures too..rarely smiles for me.

    I have tried for several weeks to get a snapshot of my husband at varous outings. He does not like his picture taken either. I guess I will have to get one soon to post. You are a brave woman!

    Zen Ventures says

    aw that is just cute! Daddy and boys out for a stroll. But Ok, is that why you’re hubby is glaring at you in that picture like you’re in big trouble after this?! šŸ™‚

    armyfamilyok says

    That’s a great picture!! I absolutely love the candid shots too. Awesome!!

    My Wordless Wednesday will be posted soon!!

    Happy WW!!

    Cecily R says

    Now that is just sweet as sweet. Jon doesn’t mind me taking his picture. But when he sees them, he gets a little more sheepish about letting me keep them. Or post them for that matter. šŸ™‚

    Helene says

    I can totally see why you’d love that pic (and yes, it’s worth posting it even if hubby gets a little mad!) You know, there is nothing sweeter than a Daddy with his kids! Tonight, my husband was throwing Landon up in the air and the kid was laughing hysterically and my heart just melted. Something about that moment was just so sweet!

    I’ll pray for your safety, and check back tomorrow to make sure you’re all right.

    I’m the photo-phobic one in our family, so I know how he feels.

    Jyl @ MommyGossip says

    First off… what a cute pic with great use of color!

    Next… I love the Wordful Wednesday. Sooooo me!

    Finally, last week I had a hard time getting the link. I’ll see what I can do this time around. Just know I am trying :).

    Happy Wednesday!

    That picture is darling! What a great daddy-this picture makes him seem like a very patient guy-especially with the little one wiping his eyes like that.

  18. 56

    Shannon says

    I adore that daddy holding hands photos. I am glad that you got the opportunity to steal one. So incredibly adorable…all 3 of them!

    Octamom says

    I cracked up when I saw your pic because mine today is like the flip-side girl version–okay, that makes no sense–well, you’ll just have to see what I mean–there are twins, it’s a candid, it’s of a person rarely seen in photographs—

  20. 59

    Live.Love.Eat says

    Very nice picture!!! I just posted mine. I cannot believe you had 28 links for WW before I even got here this AM. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kim says

    I love this picture. Candids are the best! The cowboy boots are awesome, does he wear them everywhere! I love when little kids must wear their favorite shoes everywhere.

    Jonny's Mommy says

    You’re right! This photo was totally worth it! It’s awesome!

    I hope he doesn’t kill you…tell him we all loved it in bloggy world!

    Debra says

    Oh I love it. What a great dad. I also love everyday pictures of Michael and our kids. Those are the memories that they will cherish. I especially LOVE the twin on the right… boots and shorts. Oh yes, I have been there!

    The Pink Potpourri says

    ok, i’m totally a dork…or maybe i just didn’t take the time to investigate…i just entered my link (#36) for the Pink Potpourri, but i have no idea what is for… what did i just sign up for? do i need to do anything else? sorry…i’m a total blonde…

  25. 88

    Jaysi says

    I love that picture! I really like pictures that look like real life. I’m sure that look on his face is one you see frequently.

    I love the boots too!

    P.S. No problem getting here today…maybe because it is earlier?

  26. 90

    Good N Crazy says

    YOU are so busted! I’ll check in with you later to be sure…

    And I’m tryin’ to play along today I really am…

    I sent someone over your way to play along so if nothing else…

    Kathleen says

    My husband also hates having his picture taken, and especially posted on my blog, so I don’t do it too much. You’re husband is hot, so I don’t know why he wouldn’t want to flaunt it!

    And I love your son’s cowboy boots. Reminds me of my younger brother’s. He’d drive my parents nuts stomping around the house in his clodhoppers, which is what we called them.

    Next time I’ll follow your lead and post a Wordful Wednesday rather than wordless. I can’t ever not say something about my photos.

    Laurie says

    I love that you know that about Jeff and took the picture and posted it for us all to see anyway. He will get over it when he reads how much we all love it. I think it is a really nice picture. Love seeing father and sons walking hand in hand.

    Sonya says

    Hubby…don’t be mad!!! She is just proud at how GORGEOUS you are! šŸ™‚

    What a heartwarming picture though! Brought a smile to my face!

    Oh and P.S…Angie, I left you something on my blog! šŸ™‚

    Take care and thanks for sharing that amazing picture!

  30. 97

    Stephanie says

    Oh this was worth risking! Great photo.

    My hubbie doesn’t like his pic taken either. If I get one, he’s usually not smiling. It’s like some tough guy, but not really, pose!

    BTW, I couldn’t get your button within my post. It’s on my sidebar, but I had trouble within the post itself.

    Taya says

    I like candid shots too.
    Unfortunatley, I live with a bunch of posers (even the hubby) so it is hard to get any candid shots around here. I like the effect. Did you edit through picasa?

  32. 104

    Shanan says

    Ok…I am new to this! I posted my Tuesday post….hope that is ok! I was on “my soapbox” and had a lot to say yesterday!

    Very cool picture. What program do you use to edit/enhance that???

    My sister in law told me about this! “Monkey See…Monkey Do!”
    Thought I would give it a whirl!

    Can’t type much more…way too sore!

    Mrs. S says

    So your hubby is a hunk, for sure. And it’s so endearing when you get a candid shot of your man with the kids (at least that’s how I feel about my man!).

    Thank you so much for choosing Tiffany to win your contest earlier this week. She deserves it so much! I’m very excited to see the piece she chose.

    And your blog just gets cuter every time I visit. So much fun stuff to read. Have you made a decision on the number of clowns to add to your family? I don’t know where the S Club is going to stop. I’m thinking we’ll be like the singing group…7’s a good number (it’s worked for you right?).

    Sorry for the post in the comments.

    Z's Mom says

    Awww….that is a great picture. The boys will love to look back on pics of themselves with their dad too! Hope you didn’t get into any trouble…. šŸ˜‰

    Laura says

    This was a great post! I have to say when I see this many comments I start saying… she doesn’t need mine at all anymore. You are too big time these days šŸ™‚ Wink.

    Vicki says

    That’s is a sweet and sentimental picture. I am now going to go to bed with my husband. Dads with their kids are just sexy…

    Jacki McHale says

    Oh my husband HATES his picture taken. It drives me insane! And he told my daughter the other day to hide from the camera, to cover her face, and picture were bad.

    I was so livid! Them was fighten’ words. I love my camera, and I scrapbook too. So he was SO in the dog house for that one!
