The Holidays of 2013 - Christmas Pictures

For Christmas 2013 my sister-in-law had a great idea to take Christmas pictures of our kids and give them to their grandparents for a Christmas gift. So we picked a date, came up with coordinated outfits and Dustin took various pictures of the kiddos.

The first picture was shot super fast outside because it was cold. I decided Dallas could hold Everett for the picture thinking it would be super cute. We all told Dallas that as soon as Everett was getting too heavy he needed to tell us and not let go. Brittany, Danny and I stood behind Dustin screaming and caring on trying to get all three kids to look at us and smile. Dustin took picture after picture trying to get as many takes as fast as he could. Finally Dallas shouted out "he's getting heavy!" and I was able to take Everett. Dallas did so well though and took his job very seriously. 


My favorite picture of the three of them
I am surprised that none of us went home with a headache with all the carrying on from trying to get the kids to look at the camera. It was a ton of fun though and so cute. We took final picture of all of us before we called it a day. 

This picture required a ton of photo-shopping as Dustin had to set the timer and run to get in the picture in time. Because of this it was hard to get the kids to look at the camera as they were so distracted and honestly, just done with getting their pictures taken. It turned out great though and Dustin's parents loved them.

Before Danny, Brittany and the kids came over Dustin and I got a few quick shots of us. 


It was a great day of pictures taking and once again Dustin did a wonderful job. This was the first year we sent out Christmas cards and we were able to use the pictures he took of our family. I was very excited about that! So in the spirit of this, let me wish you a very Merry Belated Christmas from our family to yours.
