Our Very Belated Holiday Photos

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

These were supposed to be taken after Thanksgiving and before Christmas...but that just didn't happen with sicknesses and all the stuff going on.

So we settled for after Christmas and were going to do a new year photo, which leaked into the new year...and then never got sent. 

But I learned a lot.

Like just cancel if it doesn't work, and it can not work for so many reasons. 

And make sure the outfits you chose are compatible with the weather.

And pick a location that is also suitable for the weather, and the age of your children.

And watch your children closely because they might just try to kill each other and leave marks right then and there for the camera to see.

And maybe we just won't do Christmas cards...We'll just do a yearly card whenever we get around to taking our family photos for that year...

These photos sure did sum up our year though. Except we didn't get any of our children really smiling. They had to be woken up from a nap and weren't feeling well...and they're 2 1/2 years and 14 months old...so. I like them, definitely the last of the crazy though. Lessons learned.

I love my family. 

Did I mention I made my dress and the ties?

Big shout out to Amanda Rayas Photography. She was so patient with us, and made something beautiful come out of chaos and little to work with.
