Our life summed up in one picture…

My mom asked all us girls to send her a picture of us, our husbands, kids (well, that’s just in my case), and pets all together to add to her Christmas card this year. For Betsy and Mary I can’t say it was that tough of a job. Only three warm bodies were involved in their shoot. Mine was another story.

When you take a last minute request, add a 3 year old at bedtime, toss in a lazy/huge dog, an annoyed husband, a tired Mommy, and two large/old cats who prefer not to be held…oh, and the required 10 seconds of wait time for the self-timer on a camera…you get this hot mess:



“All things bright and beautiful;

All creatures great and small.

All things wise and wonderful;

The Lord God made them all.”


  1. Ha...thanks for that laugh. It's GREAT and possibly a better picture because of the hilarity! And okay...I can't believe I've never recommended this to you:
    Soooooo easy to use, and there's a setting on it for instantaneous picture taking. Get it as a last minute stocking stuffer for yourself. ;-)

  2. That is absolutely hilarious! Definitely one for the record books. I think it should go on EVERY Christmas card of yours!

  3. Love it!!! This definitely needs to be framed :-)
