harp family christmas picture 2010






but i wasn't really cooperating...
so everyone just moved close to the tree for the picture...

but daddy kept making weird smiling faces, or forgetting to keep his eyes open.

so while daddy tried to figure out what was wrong,

mom made weird faces,

& checked her teeth.

it was so stressful, i needed a tricycle break...

mom & dad thought it'd be a good photo op!

i disagreed.

then mom & dad mentioned candy & eggnog...


and suddenly i could smile again. 
it was a miracle.


& we got one good one!


then i was done...
 somehow, we did end up with enough pictures for a christmas card...

and that was truly a christmas miracle.

family pictures are my worst nightmare, and 3 kids, well I just gave up. Seriously we don't have one picture of all of us since Sophie got mobile. Great for you for trying. Hope the eggnog was spiked for your post photo shoot party.

i love this post!
i think the picture turned out adorable!
but i totally agree that getting a good picture of kids our age is virtually impossible. how do you get more than one kid looking in the same direction with a good face all the same time?
