christmas card 2009... out takes

Saturday morning the kids got to have "Breakfast with Santa."
It was a speedy affair and they just got to shake his hand (huh? Is that what we have come to?) but I snuck in a little photo, of course.
And Samuel helped clean up. We didn't even have to threaten or bribe him. So I took a picture.
Tried to get some photos for a Christmas card. Seems like the out takes are always my favorite.

Here is Eva sporting her In-N-Out hat. We'll call this the one hat two buns look.
Next, we have Eva putting forth a lot of effort.
Samuel and his hat, too.
He has been doing this middle pose a lot lately. Don't know where he got it.
The last one, it is actually a genetic thing. If you are Japanese, you can't help but pose like this for pictures. Just can't.
After the photo shoot, I was inside thawing out and the Eva made me go back out to see Samuel's snowman. "That was fast," I thought.
This was what he made.

Love your pictures as always! Samuel's poses are hilarious and Eva looks so sweet...shoveling so hard and in her in'n'out hat.

OK...Why didn't I think of that snowman idea when I was little? It takes a lot less effort, which I like. And it's fast, which I also like cause I hate being out in the cold!

Great snowman. I love Sam's poses too. They are both getting so big.

Classic Snowman! I like that. I love it when I don't have to threaten my kids to help! Way to go Samuel. The shovel looks a little big for Eva, but way to go. My kids could learn a lot from yours. I am bringing them in here right now to see all the hard work!

So cute! I love Samuel's creativity. I will have to remember to do that snowman with my kids so I won't have to be outside for so long.
