Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

I am indecisive. Annoyingly so. About most things. Unless I have a strong opinion about something. And I do have strong opinions. Letmetellyou.

Anyway, I need a new header for my blog and I can't decide which photo I like best of the kids. It's so difficult to get them all looking in the right direction. Smiling at all. Eyes open (as opposed to squinting in the sun). Non-goofy looks. (Yes, there were some minor threats being tossed about.) And there is always at least one child who is not looking at the camera, not smiling, eyes shut, or has a goofy way about them, and it's hard to decide which kid to "sacrifice."

Here are the three best photos from our week:

Photo #1: This photo was taken at the same rocks as last year. Sawyer is not looking at the camera and Taylor looks unhappy. Everyone else looks good, though.

Photo #2: Same shot as above, but Sawyer is just about to yawn. It's kind of cute, but kind of weird.

Photo #3: This photo was taken at Swallow Falls. Everyone looks pretty good, except Spenser is unintentionally winking in the photo. Sawyer is sticking out his tongue, but that doesn't even bother me.

So, friends, which picture do you like best? Which should I use as my new banner?

I like them all. But #3 is my favorite.

Becky said...

It would have to be #3. Too cute!

Well Lera, we might be decisive but I don't know that we will all agree! Three is pretty cute, but I love the idea of a photo on the same rocks as the present one. Love the continuity!

I really like picture 3, but I will really miss the existing header. I think that is why picture 3 is the best because the other two are the same pose as the existing one, so if you are going to change it, I think it's best to have the different pose.

I liked 1, but I think I'm out voted. Three is good too, but I like that one is more eye level.

#3 is a good one, I like all!

Jessica said...

I love #3. My goodness how fast they grow...

Emily said...

I will say, stick with the old one.. change it when 2011 comes around.

Marty said...

Probably number three, but I like the kids' expressions in number two the best. I like the idea of a different setting, like number three. So three for me with two a close second.

Sigi said...

Definitely number three! The other two pictures wouldn't really make a change as they're taken on the same rocks as the current header. And your kids are beautiful as they are! Hugs from Germany
