Wordful Wednesday – Christmas Card Pictures 2012

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

My Christmas Card Pictures for 2012 almost didn’t happen.  I made two appointments with my favorite photographer and both had to be cancelled.  I was on the fence about sending out cards at all.  It’s been a crazy-busy time, and frankly, I’ve been pretty darn stressed lately.  I didn’t know if I wanted to bother.

But, I couldn’t not.  I LOVE receiving Christmas cards, and I’m convinced that if I stop sending out cards, I’ll stop receiving them.  Plus, some of my kids are no longer willing and compliant when it comes to taking pictures.  I have to hold firm at least once a year and demand a group photo.  {smiling}

So, this year, I snapped the shots.  Which means this years pictures are only of the kids.  Of course, this is just fine by me, now,  but I just know that next year I’m going to be kicking myself for not having a full family shot.

So, now I have some photos…..I just need to work on the cards.  I guess I’d better get on that.  🙂

  1. Your kids have grown up SO much since I first met you! Beautiful!

  2. The pictures turned out beautifully. Yep, not much time left to send them out. Have a wonderful Chrismtas season!

  3. Love the beautiful photos and card photo. I haven’t sent cards the past few years, which has me kind of “off” since it’s something I love to do. Other than when my boys were babies, I’ve never even sent photo cards. I especially can’t now that they’re grown!

  4. We going to attempt to take our own Christmas pictures this week… I’ve FINALLY figured out how to work my camera remote! LOL!

  5. Great pictures! We tried to take out own.Turns out three-year-olds aren’t cool with sitting still 🙂

  6. *our*… that’s a geniun pre-coffee / sleepy eyes typo right there 🙂

  7. Cute shots!! I had debated over the last few years about stopping sending x-mas cards, but I know my family really really love getting them.

  8. Gorgeous shots! Of course your subject matters are all gorgeous, so it’s a no-brainer. 😉 We didn’t end up having time to get our family photos done this year either, so you’re not alone. You also won’t be alone in the kicking yourself mode because of it. 🙂

    Reflecting on Favorite Christmas Decorations

  9. I loved these on Instagram (as I now wail WHY, INSTAGRAM, WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY).

    My goodness these kids are all gorgeous. We have never done a Christmas card although every year I say it’s gonna happen.

    • they just hate her for having five white children, they inneisctivtly know if whites took after her and all had five children we would reconquer the world. For that I tip my hat to her.

  10. You have beautiful kids!

    I’m curious…. how did you get such great pictures of them?? I can never seem to get that many decent ones.

  11. I have the best looking nieces and nephews! xo

  12. you have such a beautiful family!
    the kids are growing so fast 🙂

  13. Not bad for an amateur, of course, with your kids, you couldn’t take a bad picture.

  14. Love that last photo!

    I keep telling myself that someday I will send Christmas cards, but it never seems to happen! Maybe next year, haha!

  15. Man if you can get five kids to smile at once, I have no excuse. I tried this year but need to try again! You are amazing.

  16. You definitely have a good lookin’ bunch though!

  17. Great shots, you have a beautiful family!! 🙂
