Christmas Photos that Didn't Quite Make the Card

If you read my post about my attempt to get a picture of me with my boys on Mother's Day, then you know how (not) well that went. Or if you're a parent of young children, I'm guessing you can relate to the number of pictures you need to take to get just one good one. So I'm assuming you can guess how many photos we had to take to get our Christmas card photo.

I figured rather than let all those unused photos sit in photo land on my computer, I would share them for you to admire. So I present to you, our 2012 Christmas photos that weren't quite card-worthy...

If I had a kid trying to pull my beard off and a kid admiring his belly button while on my lap, I think I'd have this same expression

Hey, if Chad got a picture of my butt for Mother's Day, I am required to return the favor
Christmas morning photo #1: I guess photos should be taken before potty runs
Christmas morning photo #2: Digging for gold
Christmas morning photo #3: Apparently Alec was having some personal issues this morning

So there you have it. My family at its best. Well, maybe we're not at our best, but it's our true personalities showing through here folks. If you want the Christmas card version of the boys, here were the winners...

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
