There No Such Thing as a "Perfect Picture"

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.
no.
 let me get in the picture and hold him in my lap?
no.
 maybe if I hold him a little tighter?
no.
 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!!

I completely agree that pictures are sooo hard to get with little ones. Although, most of the ones you do capture are still pretty darn adorable. I think yours are so great! I especially love the one with you holding bubby upside down. Too fun!

Merry Christmas!

You're right those are much better and in my opinion are "perfect" pictures!

Seeing all of these great shots of you and your kids just made me decide that I'm going to schedule a photo shoot with a photographer for me and the kids. Because I am in ZERO of the holiday pictures. It's like I wasn't even here....

What a scream. I agree photos with kiddos is such a challenge. Looks like you all had a blast though. Hope you had a great Christmas and may you have a fabulous 2011 my friend!
