Christmas Photos 2007

It has been a LOOOONNNNG day! We started the day by dressing everyone in their best outfits and then trying to get a decent photo. Really, at this stage in the game I just go for decent.LOL After 58 photos, the very last one was the keeper! I've already ordered the Christmas cards and will get them tonight at Walgreens. Pretty cool!

Sophia getting ready. In retrospect, I should have gotten the older kids ready first. :snort:

We're getting tired, but giddy with the idea that someday this will end...

We kept this one and Allison fixed the background so that it isn't all wrinkled. Next time I'll iron the background.LOL We also cropped it so that it's even on both sides.

Blessings,

Lisa

Cynthia said...

That looks like a hard day's work (LOL)! Glad you ended up with one you like.

Debbie said...

OH, Lisa...thank you for the wonderful chuckle!

We usually go for a more natural look, no matching outfits or even Christmasy look. (We did manage that last year!)

Maybe one of these years we will pull it all together!

Great job, well done!

Emily said...

Great pictures and it looks like they had fun taking the pictures too. I bet you are so happy to have that finished!

I loved the one of Evie rolling her eyes and Sophie sticking her tongue out! I think THAT'S card worthy. LOL

Robin said...

So funny! It looks like you got a great one in the end.

This post is so cute and funny! It's no longer hard for me to take group Christmas pics but there were a few years a lot like this in our past!

Thanks all! I was tempted by the Evie-Sophia photo but wanted all to be represented.LOL I may send that one just to close friends.LOLOL

I'm not usually this prepared but really wanted a group photo with Sophia in that dress.

These other photos show such a cute story! They'd be great in miniature along with the big one for special people!

And bless Alison's heart, she continues to be good natured through the whole thing!
