Out takes

It was time for the annual we-need-to-hurry-and-get-a-decent-picture-for-our-Christmas-card or everyone-knock-it-off!-and-smile-at-the-camera-so-we-can-show-everyone-how-happy-we-are time. Turns out, the ones that aren't acceptable for a Christmas card are the ones that make me smile and, well, represent our family the best...
Sweet ones.
Do you think Samuel will ever believe what a punk he was as a kid? Just in case he doesn't, I will try to take lots of pictures of his punk moments. Here is one of them.
Here is me telling them not to say cheese (too late) because it makes their faces all cheesy when they do. Not shown: flicking, spitting, choking and we are all glad that we didn't get a record of all the things we yelled at the kids to get them to hold still.

And as a bonus...
Along with the Rudolph song, Samuel has been belting out his favorites:
"All around the library bush, the monkey chased the weasel..."
"...what fun it is to ride and sing a happy Halloween!"
"Casper the snowman..."
"Up on the housetop reindeer Clause (or does he mean claws?)"

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Of course I remember you and as soon as I found Audrey and Adri I went through and checked out the blogs of people I knew that were linked to them so I had actually already checked out your blog. I just figured that you would have no idea who I was so I didnt leave a comment. So thanks for letting me know that you do remember me. I will be checking out your blog too so dont think I am stalking you. Your kids are so darling. I love the pics for the card. That is so cute. It is so fun to get back in touch with old friends from high school and see how everyone is doing.

Way cute pictures. I am jealous but not taking any pictures at my present 9 month pregnant state. Your family is so cute. Isn't that great that Tori has found all of us.

I love those pictures. And I know exactly how you feel having a punk kid. Jax is the same. I think your pictures are priceless. We are getting some pictures done this week and I am dreading it...

These pictures are so fun! Sad for Eva getting poked in the eye. But I love that they show parts of their real personalities!

What an experience! It brought back lots of memories of family photos. I'll bet you got some great ones. Your family is really photogenic. I loved the colors you dressed in. Grandma
