Merry Christmas from us

You would not believe what it took to get this picture. Actually, if you have kids, you probably would believe it. Audrey is currently in full-blown toddler mode, including the arching of the back and the screaming, "WALK! WALK!" anytime we set foot out of the house. In this picture I am trying, (rather unsuccessfully, I might admit) to conceal my utter frustration and disgust with the situation, seeing as how the money, time and effort involved in making us all look like this at the same time ought to qualify us for some kind of award. The least we could do is be able to get a good picture of it to remember it by.
Alright. Enough ranting.
Hooray for the process, right? They won't be little for long...and all that jazz. ;)
I have lots of fun pictures to post in the next few days. For now: goodnight.
P.S. Audrey is holding a candle from the Christmas Eve service we had just attended.


  1. this is the story of my life, when we went for Santa pictures I found myself saying "JUST TAKE THE PICTURE, HE IS 19/MO OLD--HE DOESN'T SMILE ON CUE" It is sooo frustrating sometimes at moments like that when all you want is a cute family picture and they want to arch their backs and run away.

  2. My mom said my brother Nathan cried every time they got his pictures taken until he was 5 years old. She actually has professional pictures with tears running down his face. What is it about cameras?

  3. Hilarious! I can totally picture it. Dawson would totally do the same thing. It is a cute picture though!

  4. What a beautiful family! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
