Christmas card photo

O.k. Trying to get the Christmas card photo done. Yes I know it's Dec 21st! But we had to wait till Asia got home from collage...... And do 4 birthday"s and our 20th Anniversary ( yea!!) So they will be mailed out tomorrow. We haven't tried a group shot since Asia was 10 I think. Most moms know how tiring it is to get everyone dressed, fighting everyone with their hair.... the boys hate gel. ....Piper pulled out her ribbons. Trying to convince Piper to take off the thrift store dancing dress and put on her Christmas dress, that i stayed up to sew so she could wear it to church. But she wore this one instead, reassuring me it was Christmassy because it's green .And I had put the turkey in the oven about 15min before this was taken. Company was going to arrive in about 1/2 hour and I still had potatoes to get in the oven..... And that is the story of my life.

I love your busy story....that is why we have gone to single photos and make a collage. Your card is already in the mail.
