Taking Photos for the Christmas Card

I'm sorry it's been a while since I've written a post.  I'm sure you can relate, but December is such a crazy month, with all of the Christmas shopping, decorating, baking, and of course keeping up with all of the regular stuff!  I feel like I am so behind this year.  I think it was this time last year that all of our Christmas cards were already mailed out and received by friends and family.  I finally just ordered our Christmas cards today.  Who knows when they'll actually be mailed out!

If you are a little behind with your Christmas tasks and haven't even had a chance to take pictures of the family for your Christmas card, here is a great link from the wonderful HowDoesShe girls -- "10 Tips For Taking Terrific Pictures of Kids".  I tried following these tips, but I think Brody and Skylar were just testing me the day we took these pictures.  In some shots Brody looked great, in other shots Skylar looked great, but we couldn't get one good shot with both of them!!  So the Christmas photo we ended up picking is not in this post.  I'll have to keep it a surprise for those of you who will be receiving our card.  

While none of the photos in this post made the Christmas card, I do love each shot just because they are images of my precious Brody and Skylar.  They make me feel like the luckiest mom in the world!  Hope you have better luck taking pictures of your kids!
