Merry Christmas from us to you.

Early this month we took some quick pictures for our family Christmas cards.  I just set up the tripod and used my remote, like always.  I only sent Christmas cards to family this year.  I usually do it that way since there is SO much family to get them off to.  You understand, right?  Here's what I sent out- Merry Christmas to you, too!
I thought I'd share some outtakes...

As I was setting up my camera I wanted a closer shot so we weren't microscopic on our cards- but I ended up zooming in too much and cut off Tony's hair.  I was too focused on getting my shoes in the shot!  haha.  Too bad you don't see them in the final one.  Eh.  I liked this angle a little better too.  Such pretty trees, right?  Kinda looks like we went to the woods, right?  Well since Tony gets home when sundown is 30 minutes away we actually just stopped off real quick by these pretty trees I spotted close to our house.  They are right by a Walgreens.  Haha!
 Afterwards I took some pictures of the boys.  But it was freezing so I only took a few semi-decent ones. Hyrum has since had his first haircut.  The mullet is no more.  
 And anyway most of them looked like this:
haha!  I love them.  It was 35 degrees out so we decided to get ice cream for dinner.  Seemed like the thing to do.  Well that, and we promised B if he cooperated he'd get a treat.  After that we needed real food and it was past the point where I am willing to make dinner so Tony went out and got a pizza from this place we've never tried that was right around the corner.  We ate that and watched Elf!  It was a great evening as a family.
Why do the holidays have to zoom by like this?  We've really enjoyed every minute though!

My favorite is the one with you and Tony kissing! Cutest family EVER! And seriously, how did H get so big? I started following your blog the day you posted his arrival :) (I totally remember because when I saw the picture I thought it was insanely too pretty to be taken right after birth and in a hospital :) It needs to one of those generic pictures they stick in frames when you buy them, haha.)
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
