Oh Christmas card, oh Christmas card your photos aren't so lovely.

We are heading to Washington, D.C. tonight to spend a long weekend with Dan's sister Cathy.  We are taking Colton - Peter's best friend.  Even though we are a few weeks late, this is to celebrate Peter's birthday.

And while I am very excited to go on this trip(probably just as if not more excited that the kids!), it puts me even further behind on all of my Christmas work.  Last night, in an attempt to get the Christmas card photo, I hurried the kids to the shower immediately following dinner and made them put on a nice outfit and stand and fake smile in front of the tree.

And let me tell you.  They were none too thrilled.  Especially Peter.  Oh that boy hates to do anything that isn't on his master plan for the day.

I snapped and snapped and snapped and as I am sitting here reviewing the pictures, I realize that I have 25 great pictures of Sarah and 25 great pictures of Peter.  Unfortunately, out of the 50 pictures I took, that greatness doesn't coincide at the same time. 

I've got Sarah smiling a great big happy smile and Peter looking up to the heavens as if praying to God for relief.

I've got Peter looking happy and relaxed and Sarah staring off to the side as if looking for an escape route.

I could go on and on but you get the idea.

So without further ado, let me present you with our 2012 Christmas card picture:

I really should invest in professional shots next year!

The tree should be centered just a wee bit more!
