It took 216 photos, approximately 100 sneers, oopses, sit downs, stop movings, and stop making faces - to get the photo that we used on the front of our Christmas cards this year. Like last year, I was hoping on using our Happy Holidays signs, but we couldn't get the boys to even set it in their laps this year. So we improvised and took it with a varying of antique chairs we had in our home. My tripod was the photographer and my MIL held the photo button down. The rocking chair on the far right was my grandfather's - quite the treasure in our home!
|I used Cici to set up the shot. This one turned out beautifully!|
|The next step was to get all our kids in their chairs and Craig and I|
would come behind them. By the time Craig and I came around, the
boys were already running away.
|I thought that we would try these signs again this year. Cici and Nini|
weren't cooperating (although cute) and the boys wouldn't have it.
|We tried several times to take this shot of Craig and I behind us, but|
Mr. T wasn't having it.
|The girls and I wait for Craig to get Henry who had escaped.|
|We had everybody settled in their chairs, but just as we were taking a |
few good shots, Henry came over to see Mommy!
|I totally forgot about this. First this wasn't me - really! Hawk had just |
done his business - We should have used this on the back our cards
for our annual photo outtake!
|There are at least 10 photos of Mr. T honking Craig's nose!|
|This one made the cut!|
How many photos did it take for your cover Christmas photo?!
Whoever has the highest number wins!
I hope you have a very wonderful holiday!
