Taking Christmas Card Pictures

Well, I thought that having two kids was pretty easy, but that was before I decided to try and take Christmas card pictures! Two-year-olds are generally not known for their cooperation, but Love Bug (I thought) was pretty agreeable and docile. Ahhh, I think I started to cry about 50 times during this process. Here are some lov-er-ly photos from our different attempts:


"Do not attempt to bribe me with cookies, because I'll figure out a way to get them BEFORE I smile!"







"Oh, he's crying so maybe I'll kiss him! That will be a really cute picture!"






"I'm not holding him either!"















And here's a beee-u-tiful one from my Mom's attempts:














Finally, we had success, but only if we held them both for more control! You can see that lovely picture as our new profile pic. I was officially going to boycott being in the pictures, but there was no way around it.

Good luck to all of you in your photo taking adventures!

Funny! Your new profile pic turned out cute, though.

Nathan's not even looking at the camera in our card photo--and it was the best we had!

Love your profile picture!

It's not easy, this was one of the easier years we've had. Our probem was the crabby teenager, go figure!

Ooh, I love the new Christmas background.
The pictures turned out great - yes that includes the one with YOU in it. :)

Our family Christmas picture includes a Halloween shirt the LG got with a cat on it...it was the ONLY way she was going to smile.
