You know those perfectly posed photo Christmas cards we all look forward to sending out to all our family and friends...every family member is in perfectly pressed coordinated outfits…the little ones are sitting up straight smiling sweetly at the camera…mama & daddy are content and relaxed.
They are SO a figment of the imagination…or at least I HOPE they are.
The story of our photo is this: Me running around Thanksgiving morning finding articles of clothing that had a bit of green in them. Loading the car with kids and food for Thanksgiving dinner at Meme & Pop Pops house. Getting the kids a snack and then hurriedly getting the kids posed for the Christmas card photo before they broke down because it was really nap time. Getting outside and realizing not everyone had green in their clothing and worrying for about 2 seconds that perhaps I am color blind. Meme snapped away for about 5 minutes as twins are deciding they don’t care one bit about said Christmas card photo. We decide to take whatever we got and scoop up the winey and tired kiddos only to discover Elijah pooped through his jeans onto daddy. Elijah gets changed and 3 littlest are put down for a nap while daddy begrudgingly wears a pair of Pop Pop’s jeans while his and Elijah’s are in the wash.
And in case you are wondering…the whole point of getting the Christmas card shot on Thanksgiving is being able to use the $5 off coupon for the Christmas card package at Costco before it expires.
Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting excited for the Christmas season approaching us!
