Merry Christmas From My Crazy Clan!

Sometimes I get these crazy ideas. 

Like take the kids to get pictures with Santa.

Actually, it’s my friends fault! She is ubber talented and designs the cutest kids shirts ever and gave me some. I thought it would be so adorable to get at least one picture to share with you of all the kids wearing them!

It took some convincing, but 2 hours later I finally got my 4 year old to get out of the swimsuit he wears daily and my oldest to put some jeans on. Just as we were walking out the door to see Santa my 6 year old decides to throw-up.

Not letting that deter me I have the craziest idea of all –> I’ll just take the pictures myself!

I take pictures of food and books sometimes, so this couldn’t be that much different 🙂

Let the Crazy Begin…


This was the first picture I took and I probably should have stopped there 😉


Mug Shot –  They look like they’re headed off to prison.


Then I Lost Control! Time for a New Location!


That’s when the bunny ears came out…


…and then the Tongue ~


Now the bunny ears & tongue!!!


Then some sweet man jumped out of the bushes who was apparently watching my circus and asked if he could take a picture for me! Not sure if I was supposed to be grateful or creeped out 😉

Still determined to get just one picture of all the kids smiling I kept going…


…but then the boys decided they would be fighting reindeer
& Abby had waited long enough – she wanted her candy open!


I told Abby NO – bad idea!!!


Now Abby’s mad & Isaac has his tongue back out – I’m ready to cut it off!


And this is the reason we say NO to candy during pictures!


Now T-Rex is crashing our pictures!


I told the T-Rex he had to go… so now he’s pouting!


I’m so close to a great picture, I can feel it!
I just need Abby to stop ‘raising the roof’ when I tell her to put her hands down…


…or tell me she’s 5 when she’s only 2!

And then the camera died!
I’m pretty sure the next one would have been perfect with everyone smiling & looking (and hands down 🙂

Merry Christmas!

Anyways, I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

I hope you weren’t too naughty this year and got everything you wanted 😉

Even more so, I hope your life is filled with peace, love and happiness!

It’s definitely been a crazy year, plenty of things that went on around here to make you want to admit yourself to the crazy house.

But I truly have learned to appreciate this time of year more than ever! It really is a time to reflect on all of the beautiful things that surround us each day and give meaning to life.

Also, I don’t tell you as often as I should, but Thank You!

Thank you for coming back to my blog again and again –  for your comments – for sharing my posts with others – for being you!

It really does mean more than you know!
