Ok, ok. Now I know we're supposed to respect the turkey and all, but I don't know if I can wait. And really, it's only a week early, so it's totally ok, right??
Tomorrow I am hoping and praying to get our Christmas card picture completed. I should have started a little earlier, because I'd like to get them ordered soon. I've learned in the last 1.5 years that taking pictures with 2 little girls is no small task. My futile attempt last year still has me weary.
Sydney was all smiles last year and ready to go:
By this time, Kendall was d.o.n.e. She didn't want to get near Sydney, and wanted to sit and pout.
We decided then to wait until the next day, and just try a family picture. The camera malfunctioned and wouldn't turn on. By the time it was working again, Kendall and Sydney both were over it. By the time we convinced Kendall to stay in the picture we had to agree that she could keep her toy salt and pepper shakers. And forget looking at the camera smiling.
It has to go better this year, right?!? We shall see. In my ideal world, in the next two days we would get an amazing picture of the girls, the lights on the house, all three trees up (what?!? It's normal to have more than one tree, isn't it?), the house decorated, my Snow Village houses up, the house cleaned, laundry finished and put away, and the girls photobooks completed and ordered. Oh yeah, and make my Christmas shopping gift list. Is that doable? Yeah, that's what I thought. :/
Join up with Jenni for more Y3W fun!
Day 18 of Thanks: I am thankful that my husband will (at least should be) home this weekend. After being gone hunting from Thursday night through Sunday the last two weekends in a row, it'll be nice to have some help around the house. Or at least to try to distract the kids while I work on my Christmas decorating.
