Oh Christmas cards. Where do we start? Ok, let me just say that I love getting cards. I love sending cards. But deciding on what card to go with and getting the pictures for it always turns into some sort of adventure. An adventure that ever since A started walking we’ve just rolled with and made it into a time of making memories.
I’m telling you, I swear he likes getting his picture taken. In half of the ones where we aren’t looking, he’s like if you guys aren’t smiling I will 🙂 He really is the best and I love that he enjoys getting dressed up and participating in all our craziness. He really is so perfect for our family and will always be my first boy.
After the boys took a break (which may or may not have been a good idea) we tried taking a few more. We decided to just read them a story and pretend like no one was there and see what happens. That lasted for all of about three pages and then they wanted to read the book on their own.
I set little nugget down for a minute to help A fix his hat and boy did he lose it! I couldn’t help but grab the camera and take a few pictures of him screaming. I’m actually happy I did because this is seriously my favorite picture and made our whole card.
I had this idea of holding up mistletoe and all of us kissing one another but sometimes ideas play out so much better in my head than in real life. Womp womp, green mistletoe up against green trees looks like we’re just waving a stick around. Fetch, coaty!
Then to make matters more interesting it started getting really windy and I couldn’t keep my hair in place. This next pic isn’t so bad but everyone sitting still didn’t last long. The nuggets started acting up and then A took little nuggets pom pom from his hat and stuck it in his mouth! Not cool buddy. My husband’s reaction to how things were going says it all and that’s when we decided to call it quits.
