Christmas pictures

It's that time of year for Christmas pictures.  Oh how I dread thee!  We decided to take pictures outside with our personal camera instead of going to a stuffy and overbooked studio, paying $300 for only 10 portraits, and dealing with stupid photographers who just want to get you in and out. 

When the kiddos were younger I always imagined that picture taking would get easier.  At this age you can tell them to sit where you want, point the camera, say cheese, and capture a cheeky smile.  What's so hard about that?  Well, obviously it isn't that easy for 3 little boys.   We screamed a lot to get away from the water, but I love how we were surrounded by nature and able to use natural lighting.

So, I subject you to our family pictures. 

 The boys that have my heart!

They get along (sometimes). 

I'm alittle biased....this is my favorite picture!

One group shot (of many) that will not make the Christmas card.

Yup, we got it going on.

And this is how we felt at the end of the day!

Thank you for the tips. I will try that tmrw as I am 2 cups full of coffee at 6:30am. As you know, the mom job is the hardest one there is especially getting them up and out to school. Have a great day!
