Well, perhaps Hong Kong will let you enter despite the unorthodox passport photos, on account of the cute children, of course.

Oh no! I'm so sorry... try, try, again, and use a sheet, not butcher paper. The paper is too small. And you can take the photos further away of the baby and crop the photo later, that way you don't risk cutting part of the baby off.

Thanks, Kristin, for the advice. We actually ended up with a few good photos that I put through idphoto4you. I think they will work - we'll find out when we take them in. Your tutorial was super helpful in doing this!!

SO adorable!!! I miss you and your kiddos. Where are you going? Did I hear Hong Kong? How fun.

That is hilarious, Erin!! You are brave...we just did the passport thing, but I just settled for Cost-co. Now I'm sure the next post will be managing them on a long plane ride?? Love your crazy life with the cutest kids on earth!

Works for me! They're going to get to go anywhere they want ...just based on being adorable.
