To celebrate our terrific teenagers I thought we could have a thread where we share pictures of them! (For those who are comfortable of course.) The idea came to me as I was sorting through a bunch of pics - new and old. The dates on one or two of these is wrong due to a camera malfunction. All of these are from 2007.

Kids in trees late summer 07 I think

Costumed Oct 07

Crazy times at 2 am

Ds this last fall

I have more I'll put up later maybe. So share if you will, and if you can't that's okay too.

This is not yet my forum (saw the post from the front page) but I had to comment on how great it is to see siblings who actually seem to get along and enjoy each other! They look like great kids!

Thanks so much for that. They really are very close...like best friends, but different. I am so grateful.

Those are great shots! Your Daniel has quite a bit of personality come through I think.

The flipping off thing is funny, isn't it? I don't know what it is. A quick, easy way to show some attitude maybe? Of course I have a few myself so maybe it's a mom thing too occasionally.

My favourite picture of ds is in my sig and I think it really shows a resemblence between the two of us; I deserve it, since he didn't look a THING like me as a child.

here he is with his friends, and looking cool in his sunglasses.

dd doesn't like to have her picture taken these days, but here is one her partner took a few months ago and snuck to me.

This is one of them together that's over a year old (and you must know that teens' appearance changes even faster than toddlers') but I still love it so much.

Our kids are so beautiful! I love being able to see their faces.

Thank you! She's got a mouth full of braces! She will love hearing you said that about her.

Keep the pics coming! They are as fun as baby pics, aren't they?

You are all so lucky you can take photos of your teen! If I get a camera near him, he pulls his hat down and hides

The last good photo I got of him was last Xmas, in my siggy. I really want a good photo of him as he looks now, with his black/blue dyed hair, triple pierced ear, and all goth-ed out clothing

This thread is inspiring me to get the camera out and sneek up on him!

Those are so bautiful, MarineWife! I can't wait to get some shots of ds with his younger sibling. I even managed to find them matching T shirts for Christmas.

He has been the youngest for SO long, but he loves kids and is wonderful with them and is already starting to step into the role of Big Brother, even though he was initially very opposed to my TTCing. The unborn one positively worships him already (well, reacts very strongly to the sound of his voice anyway) and is completely oblivious to dd and her partner.

Oh yes we experience this phenomenon here too, but only with the boy child. With him though it's more about getting him to smile at all... I get some good ones here and there though.

Ooh he is a doll!! (Wait don't tell him that... tell him something less likely to make him horrified ) Seriously, do the girls (and boys) just follow him around or what?

Thanks spider and unschoolnma. I loved looking at everyone's photos. All the kids look great. I have the same problem with my ds not letting me take any pics. The only way he'll let me is if I beg him for a pic with his brothers. The one with his middle brother he took himself.

Unschoolnma, yes! The girls do chase him. I don't know of any boys who do but it wouldn't surprise me. When we moved into our new house I learned there is a 15yo girl right next door. I thought, "Uh oh, I'll have to watch these two." hehe. He went to a high school football game with her a couple other kids from the neighborhood. He came home all puffed up because apparently he's been the talk amongst the girls there for a while and he'd never even been there before. He said one girl just walked up out of the blue and gave him her phone number.

A cool thing, though, is that he has a girlfriend to whom he's very loyal. I like her because she's not jealous at all even though she knows the girls chase him and he's a big flirt. She has the same thinking on that sort of thing as I do. If he does something he shouldn't, she'll find out about it sooner or later and then it's on him, not her. It's rather funny because he's told me on several occasions how much she is like me.

All the pictures are great!! I haven't posted here in awhile (as I tend to come here for advice when things aren't going well.. LOL, so that's a good thing), but here are mine.

This is my 14 year old and me, Summer of 2007.
