Christmas Cards

So I thought this year I would get ahead of the game for Christmas cards. I always seem to be taking a last minute picture of the kids, which never ends up how I want it, then I don't order enough cards and feel terribly guilty when I get more cards than I give. This year, I am taking pictures ahead of time and getting all these cards done ahead of time! Tonight I thought I would give it a whirl and see if I could get the kids to smile pretty and pretend that they love each other. Here is what I got.....











Although they do appear that they love each other.





I also get this..










But I do get a couple decent shots individually of the middle kids.


Wait, those aren't them, Davis was a spazball today. Here are a couple nice ones...

And I am not sure why, but I really love this last one of Dane. He is going down the fire pole and his little eyes are all squinched up.

Yah, good luck with that. :) You'd have better luck nailing Jell-o to a tree.

I love doing my Christmas cards early ( I love doing anything for Christmas early!)

you could do a collage card... I keep wanting to do that since my individual shots are so much better than when I try to get my children to love each other.
Although the self-timer on my camera has come in handy a few times!

I'm convinced my holiday photos will be of tongues sticking out. Oh well.

Love the last 3 photos!
