We tried...




An attempt to get a picture by the Christmas tree was made on Sunday after church. I thought....hey, we're dressed pretty nicely...maybe we can get a picture of me with Grace and William. Here are a couple of our attempts. Dan took something like over 30 pictures. LOL. First one, Grace and I trying to get William over near us and he would have none of that. He's giving Dan 'the look.' Note that he's already asked to get out of his corduroy pants into pajamas bottoms and I complied, so that's why he's got the blue bottoms on. 2nd one is William in his Spiderman costume with both of us...because this was the only way he'd be in the picture with the 2 of us. Sometimes pictures like this are the best, because that's what life really is like! I love Grace popping out behind me. :)

I love "the look" comment. How adorable that picture is! The second one is the best.

That camera takes some mighty fine pictures.

Hi Gail,

Thank you for the lovely ornament you sent thru Kimberley's ornament exchange. I've been on the lookout for Chinese ornaments, so this is perfect! Thank you so much! Did you know when you were given my name that I'm Truly Blessed in addition to being Kelly?

I LOVE the picture with spiderman for a Christmas card -- how refreshing to see your sweet boy being himself! (And I pressured Steffie B. pretty hard to use her funny picture for last year's card!).

We also have a tree full of memories. I think I'll copy your idea and do a post on our most special ornaments.

We have the same pagoda ornament -- to commemorate our trip to China this summer to bring home our sweet Jiangxi girl (yes, we also spent a week in Nanchang in June -- and it was HOT!!!

Anyway, thank you again for the ornament, we really like it.

Kelly

Hee hee. Gotta love it. This is how Jadyn is sometimes too, and more in the past than now.
I remember one year when we tried and tried to take photos of our 3 older kids. It was disastrous. I ended up putting 12 of those photos on one page in an album and calling it the 12 Faces of Christmas.
I love the Spiderman one. :)

hey stranger ... how are you all doing ... i am cracking up at the pic w/ spiderman in it ... Maggie has this one princess pj outfit that she wears about 4 days out of the week ... i have given up trying to get her out of it when we leave the house ... i just put her boots on and go ... really wished we lived closer to each other and could have coffee together and laugh about all of this ...
