It's Funny Now, but at the time it was NOT

I've talked before about how much trouble we have getting a good picture of our kids together for the annual Christmas card, yet I still try to get that picture!  I've given up on trying to get a "perfect" shot of them together, and will settle for another compilation if I need to, but I was hoping today to get a "good" picture of them all together.

It was a beautiful fall day, with lots of leaves, and enough clean kids clothes to put together a fall color scheme for some outdoor shots.

Tell me... which of these gems screams "Merry Christmas" to you?

(Hmm.. wonder why my comment thing is weird for this post)

Babydoll didn't want to wear a white shirt (and it was the only non-pink option) and had been cranky most of the day from not getting enough sleep the night before.

Little Man was just being stubborn and didn't want to go outside, and his pants were too big and were falling off.

Sweet Pea was fine but making faces because Little Man was throwing leaves at the girls!

Well, as for which one SCREAMS Merry Christmas from the Strands, I would say the last one of Little Man for sure!! Better luck next photo session!

The comments post for your previous post doesn't appear to be working on my end...
But here is an idea for a new Blog Name: Strands of Love

Oh, wow... That sad puppy-eyed face in the forth picture is just priceless. Awww... =( And I agree with Laura. That last one is definitely screaming something! Good luck with the next set of group shots! It can't be easy getting everyone on the same wavelength at the same time. >.<

Mom - You're a fun grandma, of course they're always happy when you're around :o)

Jeni - I was really hoping for a nice group kid shot this year, I suppose I could send those out, so our friends and family can laugh that hard when they pass their Christmas cards! :o) They give us a good chuckle now too:o)
