Since Matthew was sick during Christmas, we didn’t get our traditional Christmas morning picture in front of the tree. Well, I’m ready to take down all of my decorations, and we still didn’t have a picture yet, so I had a bright idea at 4 p.m. the other day to get it done. I made the boys shower, did Olivia’s hair and got her dressed, moved furniture and turned on all the lights and enlisted Matt’s help in order to try and get just one nice picture of the kids. Just one.
Chaos ensued. The dogs started fighting and playing. Olivia bit Gabe, she picked her nose, she put her hands in her mouth. Matthew was cackling and moving out of the picture. Gabe fell over and couldn’t stop hysterically laughing. Matt was tickling me and making the kids laugh way too much. You know, the usual.
These were the best I got. Not very good…but I’ll take it. In years to come, at least it will show how big they were…and that their Mom tried.
I’m just keepin’ it real folks!
