Every year it is the same problem. How to get a Christmas picture that relays the kid's personality while showing love for each other, in nice clothes, with genuine smiles, and makes you want to give someone a hug. I'm pretty sure this photo does exists....I've seen other families capture it, yet I have no idea how they do it.
So here you have it...photos that will NOT be in your mailbox this year....
Why do Christmas pictures have to instigate a wrestling match??
Nothing says Christmas like a good head lock.
Alright Ian has lost consciousness....it's time to call it quits.
I'll leave you with some happier pictures... These next photos are of the kid's first glimpse of Santa this year...
Ian refused to sit on Santa, but was happy to tell him that he wanted a car. Cydney wanted a dancing Mickey Mouse she saw at Target.
Seeing Santa was a lot of fun. Yet, this time of year it seems to be very easy for the kids to turn into green eyed monsters, so to try a curb that we did some bell ringing for the Salvation Army this year. I'm not sure how much the task registered with Cydney (Ian was just happy to ring the bell)...but she did a great job and we all had fun wishing as many people as we could Merry Christmas!!
So to keep that good feeling fun going, we wish all you out there (if anyone still checks this blog because of my lack of contribution to it)...a Very Merry Christmas!!
