Better Late Than Never! The Family Picture!

      The regulars here know that every year my family and I take our annual family photo. Usually we take it before Christmas so I can send it out with the Christmas cards. Well not only did the pictures not happen, neither did the Christmas cards. *sigh* But alas, the other day we found ourselves all cleaned up at the same time and decided that it was the perfect opportunity to take our pictures. In reality I think I just told everyone to go put on a clean shirt and meet me by the fireplace. It’s all kind of fuzzy right now.

Everything always starts out fine and dandy. There are always some faux paus, (like not moving the couch out of the way) but nothing major. IMG_3494IMG_3492IMG_3493

Little man had a moment here!IMG_3495

Me and my beloved! Ignore the fact that I have no shoes on and 2 week old nail polish.


My beautiful children.


Or should I say crazy children? I don’t know where they get this stuff.

My hubby thought it would be “neat” if we all wore our hats. You know, to look a little more countrified. Aren’t we somethin’?


And usually right about now things start to go downhill and we end up with pictures like this.

I think this is my personal favorite!


Please send a self addressed envelope if you’d like an autographed picture. LOL!
