Last Monday I crammed the kids into jeans and matching white shirts, brushed their hair, bribed them with the promise of hot chocolate with marshmallows, and hustled them outside for our annual attempt at Christmas card pictures.
I took approximately 70 pictures in about seven minutes. Thank goodness for my new camera. Out of the 70, I got three contenders for the card. And the only reason I was able to use the one I did is that Liz from Peace, Love & Guacamole has Photoshop and isn’t afraid to use it.
Here are some of the outtakes.
Can you please look at the camera?
Ella, please stop choking your sister.
Elizabeth, sit down please!
Lily! Get off me!
But the sun is in our eyes.
Lily, can you please just give me one normal smile?
Aha! We have our winner, except for the speed limit sign next to Lily’s head.
Thank goodness for friends with Photoshop.
