Posing for the Requisite Family Christmas Pictures

Because it's not a true Trenches family Christmas picture unless someone is:
1. Picking a nose,

2. Crying, or

3. Pouting.

(Eldest definitely wins the gold star for fake smile posing. Along with Mommy - although mine was more tightly clenched teeth hissing "Smile RIGHT NOW". Middle started out strong, but fizzled at the end. And Baby? Was not having ANY part of it. *sigh*)

A Christmas card photo is a tricky animal to capture...

Those were very cute though!

Maureen said...

I feel your pain. However, I think all of the pictures are fabulous.

That's why you have to learn how to crop and paste. That's how I get my Christmas card to look perfect! LOL

Very cute pictures. Regardless if they are not perfect, they are adorable.

You just reminded me that I never posted my silly ones. No nose picking, but...I shall do that promptly.

Those boys are dang adorable, whether picking, crying or pouting.

Amanda said...

Oh, ya'll are gorgeous.

Janet said...

I think the picking the nose one would make a refreshing Christmas card cover. Just sayin'.

Judy said...

I vote for the nose-picker one!

Angella said...

I say use the nose-picking one. Keeping it real, and all that ;)

Helene said...

The nose-picking one is actually kinda funny (and so realistic!!) We actually managed to get a pretty good picture this year and I'm still in shock! None of the kids were smiling but they were at least looking at the camera and NOT crying!!! I considered it a success!

Found your blog on the MBC Top Bloggers site!

I know this all too well. I just did all 5 kids and I can't tell you how many outtakes we had. I was all cheery when we started, and near tears when it ended. I finally just took the last decent one and announced they were DONE. Having 5 look at the camera at the same time with JUST A HINT of a smile is impossible.

I sympathize.
