is it possible?

to get seven children, 9 years old and under to all look at the camera at the same time?
and actually smile with their eyes open?

It went a little something like this:

Me:"Sophia smile"

Me:"Lincoln look at Mommy"

Me:"Charlie stop leaning on them"

Me:"Pearl lift your head"

Me:"Parker put your hand down"

Me:"Ethan sit up"

What amazes me is how much Lincoln's hair has lightened up since your family picture!
