~Family Pictures~

Every Christmas we take family pictures to include in our Christmas cards. Some years it is just the Ps and other years it is all of us. This year, we decided that the entire family would be included in the picture. So, a couple of weekends before Christmas our friend, Jerrah, came over to help us take our family pictures.

I had lots of cute ideas for the picture, but when you are dealing with two adults and three puppies, it is hard to achieve the look you are going for. We took about fifty pictures that evening. Here is a small sampling of some of the pictures that were worth sharing.

This one of Paycee was the first picture we took that evening. As you can see, she was not too excited about the whole photo shoot thing.

I love this picture of the Ps. They look so sweet and innocent. From left to right they are Peyton (boy), Paycee (girl), and Parker (girl).

This was the very last picture we took that evening. It ended up being the one that we chose to use in our Christmas card. As you can see, Paycee had the same attitude during number 50 as she did during number 1. = )

I am pretty happy with the way that most of the pictures turned out. Maybe I will be able to impliment my cute ideas next year, but I doubt it!

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love to see you there too!

I personally think that all the photos are wonderful! The Ps are just darling and very photogenic. ;) Paycee makes me laugh with her determination to take a rest. The final photo is perfect. Great job getting the Ps to sit through 50 takes! Happy New Year!

50 did you ever get the Ps to sit for that many? I don't think I could even sit for that many. LOL. They are great though. Take care, Janice

Wow! Pics #2 & #4 are hang-over-the-fireplace-mantel worthy! The rest are so darn cute, too. We tried to do our 125 lb dogchild in a santa hat one year for card...didn't work out LOL! Happy new year and blessings (love that quilt!) ~*~Lisa

Wonderful pics! The last one was a great one to choose for your cards -- and I love the one with the 3 P's laying there sweet, innocent, and OVER IT!!

You must do a good job training them. At our house, we have the most uncooperative pets ever -- and could never do that.... (but we love them anyway!)

Happy New Year!

Janice said...

What a nice looking family! : ) They all turned out really good. You are so blessed!
Your Friend,
