Wordful Wednesday ~ Photo Booth and my kids

I may have mentioned this a time or two but my kids love to play with PhotoBooth on my Mac especially when I walk away and leave it unattended. You never know what you’ll find when you open it up again…. for me it’s kind of fun to see what they’ve left for me.

Cait - 4 way

Caitlin seems to like the colorful pics! I’ll admit that I like to see the pictures she leaves me because she is much more serious than her younger sisters.


Now, Natalie here…. well there are more pictures of her than I can count in PhotoBooth. I mean there has to be close to 50 of them and every single one of them is silly and none of them serious.


Then we have Lauren the ham. I think that these pictures explain it all, don’t you think so too?

Andrew & Nat

And then there are the times that they get together and see what sort of mayhem they can create. This is when you should worry… multiple kids – siblings at that – playing together nicely. This is when I must go find out what they’re doing for fear of one of them hog tying the other… yes, this did happen.

Lauren & Nat

This one here… this proves that these two can get along once in a while. If they used half the energy they use when fighting for something else who knows what they could accomplish in the world!

Cait & Nat

I’ll admit that I take my laptop with me when I go camping…. and the girls got my laptop while we were camping this past summer. This is them in the camper snacking & being them….  and having fun!

Do your kids get a hold of your camera and take all sorts of pictures?

    Mine aren’t old enough to do this yet and I don’t let my oldest near my computer! I’m curious what I’d find if I did though!

      You’re oldest is what… 9ish or so? My youngest daughter is 9 and plays with it all the time… she never takes it off the counter or anything like that. She takes the silliest videos too! Let him play with it & see what happens!

      Me too…. I like that they can actually get along at least once in a while.

    Oh that’s too funny! Kids being goofy – and having photographic proof – is just priceless. ;)

    My kids love to play with this too. I’ve found all manner of “faces” on my computer! :)

      I have several silly videos of them too! I thought about posting one of those too but stuck with the pics this time.

    Your kids look like so much fun! I’m serious. I can just tell by their photos that they are happy and great kids. Must be that great mom having an influence on them ;)

      Thanks!! There are times that they’re just crazy when they get together!

      Me too! She’s so serious that I like seeing her doing something fun once in a while.

    Gotta love when the kids take over the camera. I always find random pictures like this on my iPhone and my iPad.

      I like the random pictures… not so much that they were using my phone or computer though.

    These are PRICELESS! I hope you put them in their wedding collages. ;)

    And yeah, my 4 year old LOVES to take pics with my old iPhone – so funny what i find on there… :D

    Hilarious! I love photo booth too and so does my little Handsome! He always laughs and laughs when he knows we’re taking pics in front of the mac.

      My son (2yrs) will hold my phone up and say, “cheese!” It’s a good way to entertain them for a bit that’s for sure!

    Tried leaving a comment from my phone. Not sure if it worked! Anyway, I love this. It is amazing what kids can do when we’re not watching. Sometime scary (my kids) but also beautiful. Love that you caught them getting along! :) Do they know you posted this?

      You’re other one showed up.
      Yes, they knew I posted it… they look forward to seeing if I posted pics of them for Wordless Wednesdays!

    Kids of all ages love the photobooth feature on Macs. Well, adults (at least this one) sometimes do too. ;)

    Oh hey Mom, I see you finally did do a Wordless Wednesday. Since you’re gone at the moment, maybe I should go take some ‘serious’ pictures. Maybe blare some music too. Who knows.

      I’ll be looking for those serious pictures.
