Christmas Photo Shoot Fail…. Again

Once again this year, our crazy Mom and Aunt Bridget thought they would try and get a group Christmas picture of us. She was SO excited to try out her new lens that Daddy gave her for Christmas! Mommy decorated for days, they took so much time coordinating outfits, spent an hour showering us all after school, blow drying hair, getting everyone dressed, and figuring out how to bribe us to smile for just ONE picture. Check out the product of all their labor!

It might be more helpful to go back to the beginning so we can explain a few things… While everyone was getting dressed, Ben fell down all the stairs and ended up with a big rug burn on his forehead, and walked around for the first 20 minutes with an ice pack on his face…

Mommy thought we could cover up Ben’s bump with his cute Santa hat, but he only wanted to wear his winter hat for the pictures…

Liam was delirious and uncooperative, but when we realized it was because he was sick with a 102 degree fever, we understood why!

When Liam DID try to stand and smile for a picture, he just looked like a hitchhiker…

Mommy thought marking the floor might help the boys know where to stand, but evidently, telling them to stand on the “x” just made things worse…

So, she thought we would try some props in hopes that having something to HOLD might help…

I don’t know what she was thinking…

When that didn’t work, she tried a different prop, but Ben’s definitely outgrown this one. We can’t wait for Bridget’s new baby next Christmas so we can really use the basket again…

This one wouldn’t have been so terrible if Liam was actually our kid…

So we got rid of the props, but that certainly didn’t help…

Poor Liam wasn’t feeling well, but he did try, as long as we kept stuffing chocolate chips in his mouth… Sad smile

It was a pretty miserable day, and Mommy said she wanted to run away, but like Mor-Mor always says, “The day is never over if it makes a memory”, and we sure made some more of those!

Mommy says we have to try again… We just think she’s crazy!
