Christmas Portraits

Having family pictures made around here is really no fun! Does anyone else have major stress when it comes to family photo sessions?! My husband acts bad, my kids act awful and I get SO MAD!!! I have threatened to use this picture for our card this year just to give a true glimpse of our daily lives...



Trent's crying, Zachary's whining, I'm lecturing...

I know Brandon looks innocent in this picture, but trust me, he had his moments too!

Thanks, Kisha, for hanging in there with us. We did get a few where we look like somewhat of a happy family.

This cracks me up because I KNOW exactly what you're talking about--we get in family fights every time a photo is made. And Lane is just as grumpy as the kids, which makes me want to pull my hair out!!! Y'all all sure look cute though, so that counts for something!

I think you should use it! Everyone would relate.
BTW...you sure are slacking on your blog entries...you know your blog(and your sis's) are part of my daily routine and when you post once a week, you make me go through Milam family withdrawals! :)

I love it! Regardless of how they turn out (which I am sure will be beautiful)you are such a precious family. Your blog always uplifts me!

Definitely a priceless picture -though it may never be mounted in your home - it's a keeper! :-)

Oh I had to comment on this, MK. We had family pics made two weeks ago and Lance alternated acting like he was either going to a funeral or was being audited by the IRS. And how people get more than two kids to smile at the same time I will never know b/c I can't get two. We actually got some good ones but I don't know how. They're all online and as I look at them, I can see the progression of stress on my face. It reaches a point where I look like a puppet.
Yours will be cute, I'm sure. Look at those boys. I've been reading your blog lately since it is linked from Kelly's. Love seeing what you're up to these days. Take care.

Dito...on the family photo catastrophes. We haven't even take one this year for that very reason. Maybe our Christmas card this year will just be random pics from thought the year!
