Merry Christmas… a day late and our simple holiday card

You may remember the Christmas card outtake photo I shared on Thanksgiving. The one where the kids are distracted and Mike looks super annoyed at taking photos.

Not all of the pictures taken that day turned out the same. We actually got quite a few good photos of us, the kids, the girls, the boys. Little Man even got into them (even if he’s not really looking in most of them).

I decided quite a few years ago that I take enough photos of the kids that getting official family photos isn’t top priority for me. Most of the time I just try to pull out the good camera when we’re dressed up for something, and Thanksgiving this year was the perfect excuse to try to take a few photos for cards this year… and I missed out on getting them ready for Christmas, so they turned into a holiday card instead.

A few semi-coordinating outfits, a distressed backyard fence, and smiles (if I’ve done anything right as a mom, I’ve trained my kids on taking photos).
