Johnson Family Christmas Card 2010
After many years of battling with my children to get a picture for our Christmas card, I threw up my arms and screeched “I surrender!” and went running in the direction of the professionals. I think the year of my surrender was the year I dressed them all in red and wrapped them in Christmas tree lights…..wouldn’t recommend this, unless you have very docile compliant children.
These are fake smiles, see my oldest daughters smile…like are you freeking kidding me! This is torture. Punishment of the worst degree…being tied up with my brothers in wire with electrical currents running through it. Torture! Torture! See my younger son, he is clenching his teeth and squealing “are we done…?” So this was it, the last year of me playing photographer for our Christmas card.
This year I called Andrea, she is a beautiful, young, mother of two sweet boys, in our church. She is so talented! Check out her website, La Vita e Bella
, it’s AMAzaZING!
So glad I made them be matchy, matchy. What a great shot!
I love the coloring of this picture…and the background too. Love it!
Ready, Setty, JUMP!
WoooHOOOO! My kids love jump pictures. I have a wall of them in our basement. I’ll hafta show ya sometime…..
Oh heart breaker. My older son. If I had to walk past him everyday, in the hallway at school, when I was thirteen, I woulda been a wreck….weak in the knees, and sweaty arm pits. Yes, I had the pit problem way back then.
This makes me feel better….every picture was unbelievable, but even the professionals can’t keep my kids under control entirely….I think they were looking at a…um…well…er…sometimes you find unusual articles in alleys….”Hello…lets look back at the camera and away from the syringe on the ground….”.
This is my oldest favorite. He was ornery with me for not using it for the card. But I couldn’t decide..it was too hard to pick. Unlike when I used to take the Christmas card picture and I can’t find one good picture.
Oh my older daughter is so tall and athletic…my younger son…..always irritated because people mistake him for Justin Bieber, my Luke is much cuter than JB, just sayin’! Then my littlest peanut……I’m weeping and gnashing my teeth, tearing my cloths…why! oh! why!…….were is that chubby brown cherub I brought home 8 years ago???? I would love to freeze time right now, such fun ages. 14, 12, 11, 8.
We are so thankful for family, friends, health, shelter, food on the table and cloths on our backs. God is so good……..Praying that Jesus is the REASON for your Season.
Many Blessings! & Merry Christmas!
