Merry Christmas

My friends, it's your lucky day. You are going to benefit greatly from the fact that I am not willing to spend the time or money it takes to do Christmas cards via snail mail. If I were to do that, you would only see one, two, or perhaps even three photos of my darling children. Since I am doing a blog card, you are going to get to see so many pics of them and their sweet faces that you'll swear you just ate a big pan of fudge.

This photo session was amazingly successful. It did not end in screaming or with grudges being held and there was more than one usable picture when it was all said and done. Unfortunately, there is a somewhat black cloud over my memory of the whole event because it was just moments later that the puking began. (I realize I have reached my monthly quota of using the word "puke" or some form of it and will promise to do my best to stop speaking of the horrible events of the past week. I pray that God is on my side in this and there will be no more need to us it for a very long time.)

Below, you have the "Wow! I can't believe what you got me for Christmas!" pose.

Next we have a shot that would have been a great candidate for the one and only photo to use if I had chosen to do that old-fashioned kind of card where we actually print them and mail them. That would be so 20th century. Did I mention I can text now?

Now we have a couple of examples of what most of the shots I took look like. A fraction of the children look great, while one or more of them succeeds in making the picture unusable...but awfully cute.

And now for some of my favorites. I could just eat up that Sam with a spoon.

This is the one where they pretend like they like each other after we bribe them with something such as candy.

Finally, we have the ones where Luke just can't take anymore. "Mama, don't you think 345 shots are enough??

Naturally, I chose the third one up as the one for our Christmas calendars because who needs a perfect photo when you can have one with such personality? I love these kids.

From our wild and crazy home to yours...

Merry Christmas!!

  1. Love them all! Maddie's "surprise" face is cracking me up. And I love the ones of Sam laying on all of them. You do have some cute kiddos for sure!

  2. LOVE IT! What a fun photo session! Absolutely adorable!

  3. I am amazed that you were able to get a couple of pictures with all four kids looking at you and smiling. All the kids and pictures are adorable! Merry Christmas!

  4. LOVE the pictures Amy! Aren't you glad we have digital? How would we manage if we weren't able to take 345 pictures for one photo session. :)
