Christmas Photos

A friend of ours was nice enough to take some pictures for us for our Christmas cards this year. If you know our family very well you know we are not the "sit on a stool and pose all perfect" kind of family. For some reason we always look ridiculous when we try and do that. Plus my kids act like little monsters whenever we have tried to go to a "traditional" studio. So this year I had the idea of our friend who does it from home taking our pictures. I suggested we just be ourselves which for me and the girls involves jeans and NO shoes! :) Dan not so much but he was a good sport and took his shoes off. We just hung out and the girls got to be themselves; when Ryanne decided she was done playing nice we just bribed her with candy...what don't act like you dont bribe your kids!! :) So here are just a few of the photos that I already have blown up and am going to hang in the hallway.
