Christmas Pic, Take 20...

This year I thought it would be COOL to take pictures of the kids jumping on the trampoline for the yearly Christmas card.

I took a few pictures of my daughter and oldest son and sent them on their merry way.

I get to my youngest...









Okay, this one is my fault...


Rapper Z here...










Ornery little booger.

Brandee,

Love the Christmas card, they are beautiful children. I'm sure though that your sons would rather I say "handsome" and they are.

Also,that was a lovely tag that you got for the holidays from Girly Stuff, thanks for sharing a bit of your holiday.

I really love this idea! What fun Christmas pics! I never would've thought to do that.

Your headers are always so pretty, Brandee. Do you design them yourself? I just love coming over here to see what creative things you're up to. Hope you're planning to link up to my Christmas party on Monday! -Julia :-)

The trampoline pictures are so cute...I love the faces that are being made! The card turned out adorable! To me that is so much more endearing and more real...than everyone dressed up all elegant, perfect hair and perfect smiles.!

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

I have to agree, your card turned out perfect. My kids (5, now grown) generally took turns doing something to make each christmas picture "memorable" ha!
