“We were trying to work the self timer for a family Christmas photo. The timer went off a little sooner than expected.”

“All my parents wanted was a nice family photo. Of course with my family, it doesn’t ever work out that way.”

“So here’s our latest family photo. We wanted some shots ahead of our son’s 2nd bday, but no nap made for a crazy kid. We were swinging him on a 1-2-3 count to get him to smile, it was working great. Before the third swing got going, he picked up his feet on 1, the photographer snapping away all the while, documenting our parental failure as his hands slipped from ours. Holy crap. Thankfully he was okay, no major damage from the sidewalk face plant. And thankfully, Jenny got the shot. ”
Reminds us of another photo…
It was crazy windy and this was the only day to take our yearly Christmas pictures that fit our busy schedule. My husband is trying to hold our 1 year old as he’s wiggling around kicking his legs and knocking our middle child in the head causing him to scream. I am trying to keep calm while I’m holding him with a half smile on my face. While our oldest son is waiting patiently for our family photographer to say, ‘Cheese!’ Needless to say, this picture did make it on the Christmas card and everyone loved it!
