What do y'all think?

Is this family picture worthy to be at the top of my blog?? Be honest.

You should definitely post this one at the top of your blog. They're both great ~ you are all beautiful! But I think you should have the most recent pics so when we visualize your stories in our minds, they are true to time. Yes, it's all about us! =}

s--max said...

P.S. ~ I was actually the first to comment on one of your posts. Woo-Hoo!

I like the white better, but this is a good one, too. I like seeing Livie bigger. You look good in both.

Tori :) said...

S--max: YAY! You're commenting!! Is your computer fixed now??

sister: I like the white better too, but I didn't know if I should update with the recent pic...

No Cool Story said...

I like them both. Look how all the kids have grown.
I vote yes.

Mel said...

Wow, Livie has changed a lot!

Of course its blog worthy! It's fun to see how everyone has grown but I'm partial to the white:) Just my two cents.

CHEL said...

Heck no. Totally not worthy.
Not even post worthy.

Just kidding.

I love it and I think the most recent should always be on the top of your blog!

omar said...

I prefer the white photo in terms of photographic quality, but I like the idea of using the one that's most recent.* So I vote for putting the new one up there.

* - Unless you were making me choose between the current picture and the 5th grade Tori picture.

I like the white one, but there is nothing wrong with the new one either. I like the new one because it shows how much your kids have grown, especially Livie. And WOW! Your second oldest sure shot up and caught up with his brother compared to the pic in white.

Tori :) said...

NCS- Your vote has been noted. It counts twice since you're my twin and all.;)

Mel- I like the white too, I'm just trying to decide if I should put the more recent up there.

Chel- Thanks for your vote!

Omar- Should I put 5th Grade Tori :) up there or will she scare people away??

Heffalump- I think Alec is actually standing on a box or something. LOL He's like 6 inches shorter than Tristan!!

Yvonne said...

WOW!!! You let people vote--I like color, but that's just me. I'd like to know how everyone can be smiling and looking at the camera in both pictures. Totally amazing! And there was no photoshop involved ; )

Nancy Face said...

I like the white one best because the photographer did a wonderful job with the lighting, and everyone just stands out...it makes me smile every time I see it!

On the other hand, you and your family are all beautiful, and it's fun to see how much the kids have grown! So if you choose the newer one, it will also bring lots of smiles to your adoring fans! :D

Lisa M. said...

I love the new one.

Color is good-

Everyone looks so different.

Kayelyn said...

Wow, Alec has grown up. Look at the difference in his face. Izzy has more teeth and looks as tall as her sisters;), and she has your eyes. Look at Livie and Taj! Wow they have grown so much. I can see Taj's little personality just jumping off the picture. Livie looks as sweet as an angel. You and Sei look as gorgeous as you both always do.

I'll let you choose. I love seeing how big the kids have grown.

Did you notice that K & K are standing next to the same parent as the last picture.

Fun picture. Post it somewhere if you choose not to put it at the top.

David said...

I say yes. Go for it you crazy!

heidi lou said...

yes, yes, yes. I love how the daugher on the right is pulling her shirt down...haha.
and your son in the back is giving such an exuberant grin! how could you NOT put this up??
you look awesome!

Tori :) said...

Yvonne- No photoshop, just about 400 takes... Ugh.

Nancy- I have fans??? Wow. I'm famous.

Lisa M.- how are ya Lisa?? I've been thinking about you.

Kayelyn- Isabel actually is taller than Kelsea, but Karlea has an inch on her. It was a huge ordeal this summer... :)

David- Well, I am wild like that...

Heidi- Karlea is the nerd pulling her shirt and not looking at the camera. It's always either her or Alec that does something spazzy in the picture!

grace said...

Why not!? That is a very beautiful family picture..happy faces, each one of you.

Tricia said...

Tori,
I like the white one better but I like the fact that right now you can see how everyone has changed or grown up. What a beautiful family you have.

Yep! It shows how the family is growing!

Special K Toni

Carrot Jello said...

Wow, your second boy has really shot up.

Amanda said...

I agree with everyone else. It is nice to see a current picture. You all look great! How many tries did this on take? :D

Colleen said...

I definitely think you should use the updated photo. I am amazed that everyone looks so great all at one time. I just have Zoe... and our family portrait took forever just so we could have her looking at the camera... and for all 3 of us to have a decent look on our face at the same time. Very impressive!

Suzanne said...

I love both of the pictures, but I agree that it would be fun to see the updated one at the top! :)

Annie said...

Adopt me!

Jean Knee said...

maybe you could do a split screen type effect so you could use both of them?
where's the one where everyone has their fingers up their nose?

Dana said...

Tori, you have one of the most beautiful families I have ever seen. I want to know what you give everyone before the picture to make them be so well behaved.

I love the updated picture!

heidi lou said...

is it just me, or is your hair darker?

Stepherz said...

I love this picture! It's more recent and super cute.

What do YOU think?

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Good. I'm commenting all the way down here in hopes that everyone else has moved on.....

I like matchy-matchy coordinated family pics. It's my pack mentality OCD kicking in, I know. I like the up-to-date aspect of this one, but like the outfits of the other one. Am I too honest?

Tori :) said...

Elastic- I agree with you. I liked the coordinating outfits in the other one. I almost did the same thing this year, decided it would be lame to have the same outfits 2 years in a row. I'll coordinate better next year.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Thank you for not branding me an Olan Mills Nazi.....

Emily said...

Absolutely! You guys look fantastic, what a sharp looking bunch!

annie said...

Aw, sweet picture Tori.
Having only four kids I know the difficulty in getting just four to smile and face forward. You should get like ten bonus points for that many smiles.

Lauren said...

I love this picture! You have such a gorgeous family :)
