Here is a sneak peek of our family picture for Christmas 2008! Our original plan was to take a nice outdoor picture, but it was cold and windy. Instead we moved the love seat from the bay window in our living room and squeezed the kids in close to it to get some nice light.
I won’t tell you how many shots I had to take to get this picture, but it was a lot. If you are wondering why Russ and I aren’t in the picture, just imagine the great effort it took from both of us to get the youngest five smiling at the same time. We never managed to get Little Man smiling, although we tried, we really did, but I finally had to be content with a non-crying picture.
Maybe we’ll get a picture of all 13 of us next time, but for now, I’m quite content to have a photo of the kids.
P.S. A family photo is a great thing to do early in preparation for the holidays. I got mine printed, wrote a short family update, and included it in the envelope with Honeybee’s adoption announcement. They will be hitting mailboxes soon.
