    Looks more like a snapshot to me.
    The background is messy with the TV and fan.
    Showing the subject's armpit is not very flattering even if its a kid.
    I know it hard but try to get the kids to look at you. Capture the innocence of a child thru their eyes. If possible, go outdoor where the natural light is great for shooting fast moving kids. The background would be nicer too.

    u captured the moment faithfully.

    this shot wun win any competition. but cherish it. i am sure years later, they will look at it w fond memories.

    perhaps, such is the soul of photography.

    I would predict that you use direct pop-up flash?
    This caused the background to be dark while subject (the kids) to be bright & reflective.
    Can try to invest on a hot shoe flash (SB-600 perhaps) & bounce the flash to the ceiling to have soft balanced lightings...
    It will give you a totally different shot...
    PS: Flash can make your shot become outstanding but it can also destroy your shot... So, use wisely...
    Happy photographing...
