Yes, it’s that time of year…time to decorate cookies and make swag! We all (minus George because he had to work) went to my mom’s house on Sunday.
And yes, my mom’s house is covered in holiday decorations!
Nutcrackers, stockings, two trees and basically a city of houses under the trees. Balls to the wall, mom, balls to the wall.
After decorating cookies, my mom wanted me to take a picture of all the kids together. Well, as you probably know, taking pictures of kids can be a disaster…and this time was no different.
We tried to get the kids organized:
Then Tim decided to be in the picture…that did NOT help.
Natalie’s and Kaz’s faces are perfect. I also love that Max is right in the middle of everything. OMFG.
Then we lost some kids:
A couple came back:
Obviously, Kaz loved every single minute. But even when there were only two kids, we couldn’t get them to look at the camera AND smile at the same time.
After traumatizing the kids, we all bundled up to go outside!! It was f*cking freezing.
Julia is starting to dress herself…and she’s all ready for Valentine’s Day!
She can also be pass for Rainbow Bright!
While everyone was bundled up, this was my choice of footwear:
Go me. And yes, I have moles on my feet. Don’t be jealous.
As usual, Hart was very serious about making his swag.
After I took that picture of Jeff and Tomoe, Tomoe said “now we have one romantic picture for 2013.” Way to set the bar high.
And here’s our holiday swag!!!
I hate the color of our door, but I think the holly berries help make it look a bit better.
Dear Santa, please replace our door. I’d like a black one. Thanks.
Make swag, eat cookies (or just lick off all the frosting) and make fun of your family be merry.
I love pictures of crazy kids trying to get together! your mom’s house is like my dream! Christmas everywhere!
Kids, cookies, chaos and Christmas, ya gotta love it!
Hi! I love reading your blog and think you’re the real Modern Family even though Sofia Vergara is a little confused.
Anyway back to why I’m commenting…I love your blog and the pictures look so good! What camera do you use? I love taking family pictures too!
Thank you!!! I used a nikon d3200 for the pictures in the swag post (we just got it!!) and a sony cybershot for most of the others on the blog.
I have those shoes! 🙂
