Today While the blossom still clings to the vine…

The first title of this post that came to my mind was “Today.”  When I typed that in, the song followed…  Oh well.

We got our hair cut today.  Since we all looked a bit tidy, I thought it might be nice to try and get our Christmas card pictures done this year.  How many times does a picture have to be taken before 2 adults and 6 children all look at the camera without any funny faces, fingers up, eyes closed or mouths open?  Many, many, many times.  Here are some of the shots that were taken…(Click on the pictures to enlarge them!)

Mom finally has enough of James’s faces!!!  So the Yankee in her comes out and she screams!!!!!


Oh well, better just try to relax and be that Southern Belle she’s always dreamed of…


John – almost 12
Kevin – 10
James – 8
MaryEllen – 5 1/2
Charlotte – 3

Now, here is the photographer with Veronica…paige-veronica  These pictures were taken in our front yard.

    Great pictures! I know the joy, and the pain, of the “Family Portrait”! Of course, I would NEVER snap at my children during a photo shoot! 😉 LOL!

    You have a beautiful family.
    God bless,
