344/365... Christmas card workout joy.

I decided 15 days before Christmas that I needed to torture myself and photograph my children for our family Christmas card.

Photographing my own children is like a high intensity workout.

They act overly silly.

They walk away and ignore your presence.

(I actually really love this one.)

They cry.

And they scream.

It was an all-day photoshoot but I ended up getting some cute shots of each of my babies.

And I burned 5,258 calories in the process.

Christmas card workout joy.

In other news, Happy Birthday to a very good friend of our family!!! Hope you had a wonderful day, Mr. Stu!

I love the walking away shot! So pretty! Can't wait to see what your finished card looks like!

Gorgeous snow! I struggle with getting only 2 children to look at me and can't imagine the work it would take to get 4! Hope you post your final image at some point for those of us not on your Christmas card list. :)

What darling pictures. Walking away is my favorite. I love the cookie making ones as well. Sweet tradition.
