NOT The Christmas Picture

I believe I may have mentioned that I had a goal over the holiday weekend. It is the same goal I have every year around this time, to get the Christmas picture. I asked The Dane if she would help me out and she graciously said yes. I don’t think she really knew what she had gotten herself into. We did get the shot, but these are so not it.

And so it begins.


What are we, the Ice Capades?


He’s a little too big to ride on anyone’s shoulders.


A little too casual,


too much bothering.


Then he started to bother Abby, as he does.


Then Honey joined in.


Doing the can-can.


Everybody grab a limb!




Almost there.


We finally got a couple good ones before the whole thing deteriorated into inappropriate gestures.

I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to The Dane, no one else would put up with all of that nonsense. Except Nurse Lauren, who usually gets the thankless job.


She even managed to get in some herself.

I will show you the winner at a later date. Rest assured, it will not be one of these sparkling beauties.

    Ha ha ha ha. No wonder you worry about the family picture every year. You have a family that loves to fool around. What fun though. I like the last picture it looks pretty worthy to me. The winner must be really good.

    The last one is cute, though.
