Try as I might, each Christmas I attempt to get that"perfect shot". That "Norman Rockwell-esqe" family photo under the Christmas Tree - with the children all dressed in their finest. I have found it to be impossible. The 2 olders are used to the torture, but with the never-sitting-still 19 month old and a grumbling hubby who mumbles something about this being 'ridiculous' under his breath behind me, it turns into a nightmare.
let's try him behind you too - maybe he won't escape.
let me get in the picture and hold him in my lap?
maybe if I hold him a little tighter?
cause then he will just slam his head into that big Christmas necklace you are wear, bruising your chest.
well, now I am getting comfy, mom.
not for long bubba.
so, with all that pain & suffering (mainly by me), I did manage to capture a few sweet moments.
Next year, I just need to give it up and realize I'm never gonna capture the perfect shot. These ones a way better!!
