Oh my!!!! Christmas pictures-Yikes! Over the weekend my husband and three young kids went to get our pictures taken for Christmas. We went to a place where they take your digital picture and you get to see them as soon as your done. Our appointment was at 1:15 we didn't get out of there until 4:15. Oh it was painful! It actually only took about 15 minutes to get our pictures taken, the rest was waiting in the lobby with all the other 15 families. ha ha.. Kids were crying, sleeping and crawling on the floor. It was pretty funny and the kids didn't actually mind it too much because they were playing with other kids. For the parents it was long enough.
I learned a couple of lessons, I won't be getting our pictures taken on a Sunday during the holiday season. Ha.. and I won't comb my kids hair until our names are actually called for pictures. Poor Shaye (my three year old girl) had her hair done a dozen times because after you stand on your head and roll around on the floor your hair seems to go flat. Ha Ha... By the time she got her picture taken she looked like a camel had sucked on her hair for about a day.
I think we've come up with a couple of ideas on how to make it less stressful for everyone including the photography studio, Get a TV and have several kid movies on hand. The kids could chill out and watch the movie and so could the parents. Next time, I might even bring a little popcorn. Ha Ha..
