Holiday Photo Bombs

We are not the picture perfect family.

We came home from church today to find a plate of Christmas goodies left for us by our neighbors. It was a pretty darn good plate of goodies, too, and we all knew it because every year this particular plate is pretty amazing.

So why is Sophia so upset in our Sunday photo? Because I wasn't sure if the chocolate covered cookie ball thingies on the plate were gluten-free or not and she wanted me to call and find out RIGHT NOW. (As it turned out, they were made with regular Rice Krispies, which are not certified GF, and I wasn't taking any chances since something gave her a bad belly ache yesterday.)(Don't worry, she got to eat plenty of GF fudge from that plate.)

Thank goodness for The Maestro and his crazy booty-shaking dances to make the girls laugh.

Except his shaking booty photo bombed the only photo where all three of my offspring were smiling.


Then I told Chloe to try and take a photo of The Maestro and me, since we're not in on these Sunday photos very often ever.  We should at least make an appearance on the Sunday before Christmas!

Bria thought it would be funny to photo bomb us.

And then I decided to take my glasses off, and somehow all of the pictures taken sans spectacles were blurry.  HOW DID THE CAMERA KNOW I COULDN'T SEE?

Nope.  If you're looking for a picture perfect family, look elsewhere.  You won't find it here.

BUT WAIT!  I won a full photo shoot with this photographer at a Christmas party this week. I am so freaking excited about this that I could scream. Okay, so maybe I did scream. And Joel said I was acting way more excited about this this than I did when he asked me to marry him.  So yeah, I'm excited.

Because if anyone can make us into a picture perfect family, brockit can. I am in love with their work. How could I not be excited about that?

Picture perfect family finally coming soon to a blog near you....stay tuned.  (Do you think it will be okay to use the same photo every Sunday for the rest of eternity?)
