Do you know what an outtake is?

I had NO idea last year at this time.

I thought an outtake was what I erased

when I was getting read to edit.

davids sophia 104 An outtake is a picture that you didn’t mean to capture.

The above pictures of my parents

and grandkids are outtakes.

I was hoping for happy, smiling people

and instead I got that!

You will NEVER believe who the judges are this week.

Maybe you should enter.

Even if you have never entered before.

Make my day.

P.S. The tree did get put up. PHEW!

P.S.S. Do you erase your funny pictures right away too?

Unknown Mami said...

I tend to hit delete pretty quickly.

Marilyn said...

My pictures are almost all outtakes. Yours are adorable. Love those family pictures. Your Mom's 2009 face is priceless. Yes, I love the delete function on our camera. I use is often--very often.

Marilyn said...

I meant 2008---2009 is a good one too though.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

You couldn't have captured the sneeze face if you went looking for it. Priceless!

Jennifer Froh said...

So excited you are going to be the judge next week!!! YAY! That should be so much fun!!!! Congrats! :)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Those pictures are absolutely priceless! I'm not going to be as quick on the trigger to erase outtakes anymore... ;)

Ocean Girl said...

Your post is so, so great and funny. It simply makes me smile.

Before, I didn't really take pictures, but lately, my children have become the two most photographed teenagers in the world!

Spencer L Casey said...

What a great couple of images of your family. We change so much in a year, don't we?

Angie - The Arthur Clan said...

These are wonderful Rebeckah! I think that outtakes are hilarious and fun...and I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to delete a photo again. LOL!

Thank you so much for being one of our FABULOUS Guest Fan Judges this week. I appreciate your help so much!

Have a fun week,

Yes, I delete a lot of pics. That said, last summer, I took a series of shots of my mom and her sisters getting ready to have their picture taken on a big wooden swing. The series is wonderful. If you didn't see it, I'd love to send you the link :)

He & Me + 3 said...

Those are great pictures. Your mom's face is a hoot in the first one. I love it. I usually delete the outtakes...terrible huh?

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love funny pictures...and yours are amazing!!!!
Glad you got the tree up...I was wondering.
I love your card too..and I think I got an A+ on the quiz!!!!

Drew said...

Fun pictures! I'm glad you're the judge this week because that takes one person out of the running to win. :) Ha! Hope you had a great Christmas. I look forward to seeing who you choose.

smiles4u said...

I love these pictures. These remind me of all the pictures I take and ususally only end up with a couple of "good" ones. Glad you got your tree up! Glad you had a good Christmas! XX

Whimsical Creations said...

LOL! Those are great!!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I know I am not good at these either! I usually delete them. I think that yours are great tho. Mine- Not so much! I will have to dig and dig to find one! ;)

I love your moms face in the pics...she looks hilarious!

Muthering Heights said...

LOL, I LOVE the outtakes!!!

Yes, I delete mine, asap!!!

Rachel said...

Love the outtakes! Every now & then I keep a particularly hideous one for laughs... or to blackmail our toddler with later ;)

Still laughing at your mom's expression -she is a trooper! :)

Lauren said...

I like to keep the funny pictures, unless it's a bad picture of me. Then I'm quick to delete it. Is it bad that I'm so vain?

Visiting from SITS,

Lauren

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

These are too funny! Thanks so much for being our guest judge this week:-)

the monkey's mama said...

i love all of them! so funny and cute! great finds in your archive...i dug through to October and found 5 so fast that I never got past that month!

Joanna Jenkins said...

I'm guilty of hitting "delete" too fast too.

Glad the tree made it up!

Love the pics! More please.

Grandma J said...

Wow have those kids grown! I love your outtakes. They are better than my best photos.

Jan said...

PRICELESS!!!

DonnaS said...

Love your pics and love that you are a judge this week :0) I always look forward to seeing your entries every week...have fun judging!

Erica said...

oh my goodness! these all make me laugh!

Kristen Johnson said...

those are all great, but the little girl who looks like she's getting ready for a major sneeze is my fav!

Buckeroomama said...

I love the pics with Grammy and PopPop in them --especially the first one!

I love not-meant-to-be pics that turn out really funny!

linda said...

Thank you for stopping by my site today and especially thank you for leaving a comment! Comments are always welcome and so is making new blogging friends!

Love the outtakes, 1 miffed grammy is too cute!

Take care and happy holidays!

Pumpkin Delight said...

I'm glad to hear the tree got put up. Are you leaving it up for awhile so it's worth the effort? :)

Emily said...

The outtakes are often the best pictures! You have some pretty funny ones here!!

Alicia said...

LOL, those are still great pics!!!

Sonya said...

I sometimes keep the funny photos but after awhile I will delete them. It's kinda sad though because back in the day where there was no "digital" aspect and you had to take the film in to get developed,you'd laugh over the goofy photos and keep them and look back from time to time.

Maybe I need to start doing that again! Loved your photo and yay for getting the tree up! LOL

Reader Wil said...

I guess outtakes are like bloopers! They are funny for anybody but for the people on the photos! Yours are very funny. Your son is the only one who looks calm and a bit dreamy!

Hilary said...

These faces are wonderful and quite reflective of those moments. I sure would have kept them too. :)

Brian Miller said...

ha. love the faces...sounds like you had a great holiday as well...and i save mine for evidence later. smiles.

Katarina said...

Those are great.

Michelle said...

Great outtakes!!

Melissa said...

I love the first two family out takes! Great post.

Tracey said...

Granny's face in the first one is just priceless! Love these photos!

Vanessa said...

The first one cracked me up! Her face is priceless.

Mom to 9 Blessings! said...

Rebeckah these are GREAT!!!!!

Love the little girls face at the end and your Mom's - he he he!

Blessings and Happy New Year!

Bunch of Barrons said...

Great pictures! :) Too funny. I have so many photos that I delete with my kids...I can't get the 2 of them still enough to get a "posed" picture very often.

LceeL said...

Those are all such really good shots - but I REALLY like that last one. And I'm just going to let it go at that.

Jo said...

These are great! I love outtakes!

Baloney said...

The outtakes are always my favorites. Delete them? No way!

CallanNMasonsMama said...

Great pics! Hee hee! Normally I erase all the "bad" pics, so I had to hunt for a good one.

Tiaras said...

these are quite hilarious

Alice said...

i love the 2 comparison shots of the family - that first one is a definite keeper - lol! and, yes, i know who is judging :) :) :), come on over and check out my pix :) :) :)

just kidding! happy holidays!

Billykidd said...

oh my goodness! look at grandma's face in that first shot! love it!

JennyMac said...

I am a very quick deleter....haha.

These outtakes are fantastic! Maybe I should not hit delete so quick.

Cole said...

My delete-finger gets a little too quick sometimes and I delete the good pics too. Then we go through tons of takes trying to recapture them. I love your pics, they are precious!

Katrina said...

I love the group shots-- too funny! I actually have a tendency to keep most of my outtakes. Usually they end up being my favorites. :)

Jen Walsh said...

Cute pics. I'm finding it impossible to get family shots with lots of people. Yikes!

Siegrid Cain said...

Hey cool that you are a judge!!! Love your outtakes - those are the kind of pictures people will love to look at especially when they are older!!!

Riet said...

Such lovely pictures and adorable kiddies.

Karen Deborah said...

I love the funny pictures best of all.

Kileen said...

Love your outtakes. I love when everyone in a picture is doing something different.
I don't delete any pictures. I love to look back and laugh often.

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Kasie said...

loving the grammy & pop ones. too funny

Brooke said...

I almost always delete my outtakes, now I know better!!! They truly can provide some good laughs.

Love the picture of the crying/scared baby....poor thing. What were you doing, chasing the kiddo around all day with your camera? (hee hee)

I'm excited to be a guest fan judge right beside your graces!

Jason, as himself said...

My favorite pic is the miffed grammy!!!

You are becoming quite popular, Miss Rebeckah. :)

DD said...

Great outakes! and I am glad you got your tree up...now the question is how long will it be up!

Marine Momma said...

P.S. I just saw your comment on my Christmas Traditions post. Buddy is your friend?? He just preached at our church Sunday while our pastor was out of town. He's preached their a couple times; he's really good! That is so crazy!! What college did you go to?

puna said...

How exciting that you are a judge this week! Come over and see!

Briana said...

Congrats on being a judge this week! Most deserved! And don't you love family photos? It's hard enough with just Sean and I, I can't imagine adding squirmies :)

April W said...

I love the first one. Grandma's face is hilarious. I only delete if the picture has me in it lol, otherwise I keep them for blackmail!

Momma Pixie said...

I love your captures! I don't erase anything ever. You never know when you might need it & I am that way about getting rid of things in life too but my husband only tolerates my philosophy when it comes to my pictures! ;)

semicrunchymama said...

I love the two family pictures -- what a wonderful tradition, to do that each and every year!

I used to delete my "outtakes" right away, but now I try to at least upload them to the computer. Once I see them on teh computer screen, sometimes I can edit a bit, or I realize that the quirks that I initially thought made it an outtake actually make it a keeper instead!

Nancy Campbell said...

I adore the "after." What a difference a year makes!

K said...

GREAT "outtakes"!!! Family gatherings always make for the funniest shots. :) I don't usually delete my "outtakes" unless I'm getting dangerously close to filling my memory card and need room for more photos. I'll delete pics that come out blurry, or have the backs of heads, stuff like that, but usually keep the funny ones.

Dea said...

Thanks for the comment! Your pictures are funny as well! I love em all!

Elena said...

I love them all! too funny. The sneeze one is adorable :)

Adeena said...

Yep - I mostly delete, too.

LOVE your 2009 pic! :D

Mom of M&Ms said...

I love the shots.. You made me laugh. COngrats on being a juge!!!

Liz said...

I love those pictures!

LaurenM said...

these pics are great! i love the first one, lol.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh I love it!!!!! And I thought outtakes were ALL the pics we take. Just different versions. Thanks for teaching me something.

And I hope you're doing wonderfully on your journey. Just think about how awesome 2010 can be with that different feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ethelmaepotter! said...

I love the first picture, too, but that last one...I had to look twice before I saw it was a spider. At first glance, I thought it was a huge inflatable approximation of the birth process!

Yaya said...

Lol! Yeah, I tend to erase my outakes most of the time, I guess.

Marine Momma said...

Oh My Goodness I just saw the winners of the Hilarious Outtakes!! Thank you SOOO much!!!! I am SO excited!!! :) :) :)
