Christmas photo drama!!

Taking our Christmas photo is usually an "all hands on deck!" event. I really don't like it very much because we do it at home to save $$ and the kids complain the whole time!! This year was no different especially since the baby was involved. Every time we would put her down to sit, she would crawl away out of the picture!! Then the dog tried to knock down the sheet we put up behind them. I thought I had to be on some hidden camera show!! I am just glad no one ended up scratched, poked, or punched! (and that hubby and I elected to NOT be in it this year!! ) Anyway... here are some of the originals pics we took and some we had an artistic director from my hubby's office fix!!

First some no so good FUN ones!!

"oh no, really... don't take my picture!"
Crazy kids!

"That is it... get my agent on the phone!"

Now for some nice ones!!

Now for some artsy fartsy ones!!

Happy Picture Taking!!

(We have a lot of Christmas festivities coming up so check back!!)

    Oh my gosh....HOW CUTE!!!!! You took some really good ones!!!!

    I know how hard it is to take a "group" photo. One year it seemed like I yelled at the kids for 30 minutes straight just to get a good picture..LOL

    They did really well. Don't you love all the fussing for just one good picture. We go through that every year too. The kids hate to have their pictures taken, so it is a chore, but the end result usually looks like it was an easy process. THese are great. Love the artsy one of the three of them, very nice.

    You are very brave to try this at home. I have tried it a few times, but my kids always do much better when I take them to a place to get it done.

    Cute pictures!

    I am a slow learner and have finall caught on. I need to take my camera every where!!!! My whole family has very different names. My aunts are Lyric, Bettina, Gueric and my mom is Gemma. I wasnt able to use any of them for my kids, being that I have 3 boys!
