I have been watching the weather waiting patiently for a day warm enough to take our Christmas card photos. When I realized the bottom was totally dropping out this week, I knew last week was the do or die moment.
On Sunday it was supposed to be 65 degrees. I waited and waited and waited for it to get warm enough to get the kids outside to take the pictures but it just never felt warm enough. I knew that Sammi would just cry about being cold (that girl and cold are NOT friends).
Since it seemed like it was never going to happen I put up a Christmasy sort of quilt, opened the French doors wide, made a photo shoot in the dining room and got on with it.
The kids were shockingly easy this year. I did prep them for two days in advance with warnings that we were going to take pictures.
