I love trying different companies for our family Christmas card every year. Right now is the best time to get holiday cards printed because lots of companies are giving away (20, 10, 15 cards) cards in the hopes that you will purchase more from them. So on Sunday I decided it was time to take pics of the kids. In hindsight, I have to question my sanity on this one. Ian had vomited a couple of times the night before and my husband wasn't home. I did at least feed them lunch....I wouldn't dare attempt pics on empty stomachs. I have decided taking pics of 3 children is not a one person task! I could have asked my dear friend who takes Hailey's pictures, I could have waited until I "knew" everyone was healthy, I could have waited for my husband to be home...did I, NOPE. I'm not a patient person. My husband complains that I get a thought and run with it...well, that is exactly what I did. I had the card offers, I wanted to get them done...there was no stopping me. I didn't even keep track of how many pics I took...I didn't even care if Hailey smiled....the boys were the hardest....I think out of all of them I have one good one of the 3 of them. They are all smiling. I was even able to get an individual of each of them. I'm not attempting that task solo again!!!!!!
One would think that I would get better with this patience thing over the years...nope! Here are a few of the ones that didn't make the cut...
|I told Ian to put on khakis and a white tshirt...his argument....the shorts are khaki and the tshirt has white writing on it!|
|She has the superman pose down pat|
Oh what characters!!!!!
