Christmas Card 2012 (Or The Things I Make My Family Do)

Walker's now at the age he doesn't like mommy taking pictures of him. He finds mommy "annoying" at those times.

Gone are the days I can dress my little guy in a cute red and green outfit, with cute little green trees on his pants and have him pose with Christmas ornaments and Santa Claus.

So for this year's Christmas card, I needed to get creative.

So I trekked on over to Michaels and picked up some fake snow and a couple of styrofoam balls and decided I'd let Walker have a snowball fight with me and his dad and hope I could get some good pics out of it.

He was down with my idea.

Of course, we got a lot of good outtakes on this one...and it was funny because I had him all dressed up for winter, but it was actually pretty warm out (yep bare feet - we keep it real).



 
But the winner and my fave had daddy sprinkling fake snow over Walker's head while he threw "snowballs" at me.  I've gotten several perplexed e-mails and calls asking me where in the world we went that it was snowing.

 
Merry Christmas Yall!

  3. At 22 and 26, my kids STILL have to endure my endless picture taking around the holidays. Although, my "throwing oats in the front yard for the reindeer" event this year ended up with oats in my hair. It was apparently more fun to throw them at ME than on the grass.

  4. Excellent card and great group of boys! Our boys are about the same age and it was the first year with no real "toys" to open. Just more expensive "Man" toys!!!
