FFF-Christmas Card Outtakes

Do you know how hard it is to get FIVE children to all look at the camera at the same time AND smile!!?? This year, the smiles were so "cheesey" and the kids were exceptionally uncooperative.  Peter has a stubborn streak and was the hold-out for most of the smiles! Here was one of the out takes where Peter would not sit up straight...

 Ricky was really trying to be a good boy and smile nicely but this was the best we could get in the end!  I figure that at least 4 of them look natural in the picture!
FINALLY got my Christmas cards ordered and received them yesterday so I need to get them out today.   I usually have them sent by the beginning of December but this year has been busy with one extra little peanut in our household!  Our foster baby, Miss S, will probably be with us until February.  What a joy she is to our family!!  We love this little girl!

We attended a Christmas party this week where Santa was present so we got some pictures with him.  Even got some great pictures of little baby S with Santa to share with her birth parents!

Peter was scared to death of the reindeer and wouldn't go anywhere near Santa until the reindeer completely left the area!  Then we was all smiles!!

I still have lots of Christmas shopping to do for my big crew!  This weekend we will start some holiday baking.  In years past, my Christmas cards  have been ready to send by the first of November...not that I mail them that early...but this year I still don't even have a photo to use for the cards.  I am really behind on all counts but most of my time goes to caring for a beautiful little baby who needs us right now!

A big snow storm is on it's way to Minnesota this weekend!  Stay warm and have a great day.  To see more FFF, go to Hannah's blog.
