Holiday Portraits

7 12 2008

On a whim this morning I decided to haul the kids, dressed in their Yuletide best, out to the park to run around in the cold* air while I snapped hundreds of shots in the hopes of saving us a trip to Penney’s this year. And, I think, we succeeded.

The kids are both sick (which seems to be a permanent state of things around here) but with the help of some tissue and a heaping of youthful energy I think you can’t even tell. Except maybe in one picture, but I will let you guess which one.

OMG I *love* that one of them on the rocks (7th photo down). It’s just too cute. And the last one is priceless of course. You wouldn’t get photos like that at Penney’s.

Ha! How weird! We just took a slew of family portraits in the ornaments on the tree in the Organ Pavilion at BP yesterday morning. I felt like I had a cool colorful fish-eye lens. I want to go back and do more!

Way better than anything you could get out of a sitting at Penney’s, that’s for sure.

Treasures, all of them.

I just got one of mine that’s a keeper. Too bad they weren’t dressed up!

You are awesome 🙂 Jaina loved the pictures, by the way, but wants to know why Elliot is so sad in the last one.
