Holiday Cheer Photo Contest

Pin It Now!
Photo Contest at writefromkaren.com

Write From Karen is hosting a Holiday Cheer photo contest! Stop by her blog between 5pm central time on Dec. 14-8pm central time on Dec. 17 to vote for me!!!!























Choosing from the gazillions of Christmas photos we have was tough, but I finally settled on this one of my 2 precious boys taken back in 2005. I had several really cute ones picked out, especially one of my sweet, little girl, but this one just felt right for the moment.
Now, not then, it makes me laugh every time I look at it. Stockings are hung by the fire, Christmas tree is all aglow, gifts galore are piled beneath the tree--it truly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and this is the best they can give me. It is what I call one of those "Mom moments". All because I made them put on their Christmasy looking sweaters and pose together for the camera. By the looks of it, you would have thought the Grinch had paid us a visit! Yes, Mama was gettin' frustrated!
In a matter of moments it went from Holiday Cheer to Scrooge is Here. Again, I look at this picture, and a huge smile spreads across my face. It's one of those moments that I will never forget as long as I am here to celebrate Christmas!
I love you boys!

Funny!

Many of my recent Botanic Garden pictures look nice but what you don't see is me yelling at the kids to SIT STILL! and LOOK HAPPY!

Aren't kids funny! Mine would have the same look.

I absolutely cracked up over this picture. MAN! Can I relate to this or what?? I also have two boys and I can't tell you how many THOUSANDS of pictures we've had to take simply because they didn't want their picture taken. And now that they are teenagers - oh man, it gets worse. lol

Thanks so much for playing! Voting has started so urge your readers over to vote for you! Good luck and have fun!
