Our attempts at the perfect Christmas card photo!

I just have to laugh! Last night I dressed the kiddos in their matching little blanket sleepers and sat them on the couch in order to snap the one perfect photo to use on our Christmas cards. Wow, am I naive or what? What on earth made me think that these two little angels would ever sit still, at the same time, and flash me their most perfect smiles, also at the same time? I was so flustered by the time it was all said and done! I think I got one picture where they're both actually looking at me at the same time....forget the smiles! I was flustered until I realized that I could do a collage photo card and put in several of the "blooper" type photos along with a witty little caption that explains the moment perfectly. Now I actually treasure all the random shots we ended up with. Plus, as I look through them, I can't help but laugh at how Emmalee would only sit still if I said it was Tyler's turn or how Tyler kept leaning over to try and bite Emmalee on the head. I can not imagine loving these children any more than I do. They are the most amazing little people. I hope all our future Christmas card photos are as fun as this year!
