I just finished taking 46 pictures of the kids in their Christmas outfits and I may have two photos to use for cards and such.lol No, they aren't great pictures but I think that most of them are in the photo and some of them are actually looking at the camera and I'm not sure but I think that none of the kids in the picture are picking their noses. lol I'm thinking that in future pictures I'll have everyone sit separately and then I'll paste them all together in PhotoShop.lolol

Really, I think it should be against the law to expect families of more than two kids to poise for a group photo.

At least we have 44 photos of out-takes for the calendar. I'm guessing it'll be hard for Allison to decide which ones to choose, considering she has so many to look through.

Another thing, don't expect a child of 22 months to cooperate when you put him in winter clothes when it's 78 degrees outside. He spent most of the time saying, "Ow! Ow!." lolol

I'll post my favorite photo and maybe my favorite out-take once I've seen them printed out and can look at them together. My trusty PictureMate is churning them out right now.lol

I didn't even try for a Christmas photo this year. I chose one from over the summer of both kids that I liked! On the plus side, my pics are ready!

I am so behind in this department. We always have them done before Thanksgiving and this year I haven't even put any thought into it. Plus, my friend who took them last year for us has now moved - so I am not sure who can even take them . . . .I need to get busy and get this set up :-)

We had my brother take a family picture on Thanksgiving Day. I uploaded them to walmart.com the next day and picked them up the day after that. It was GREAT! I used my printer last year, but it took FOREVER! Oh... try adding a DOG to the mix when you're taking a family picture. I finally had to settle on the picture (upper right hand corner of my blog) where the dog was facing us instead of the camera, but at least all of the humans were smiling with eyes open!

This is our only picture for the year so I really try to make it good.lol We send this out to grandparents and extended family instead of the expensive photos you can get at places like Sears or JCPenney. I know I'm not anywhere near a professional but at least the little ones don't cry when they see me.lol
