Here's a pic of the cheese ball which everyone loved.

Thanks to mom for the cleaning and general council.
Thanks to SILs for the desserts and drink filling.
Thanks to MIL for extra foods and breakfast items.
Thanks to Gigi for the china.
Thanks to Nanny for Sweet Potato Casserole.
Thanks to Dad, BIL, Aunt and husband for baby sitting and cleaning.

And now, a special video to describe how I feel.

Tis the Season

...for Christmas card rejects.
It happens every year. I take over 100 snapshots of the kids for our annual Christmas photo card and only get one usable shot. We're improving somewhat. This year I got four. Thank god for digital technology. Imagine waiting a week for photos to be developed only to find you have 24 shots of baboon faces and crossed eyes. If you happen to be friends or family, you'll get the best picture in the mail but here is a selection of some of the rejects.
Click the photos for a blown up better view.

What was I thinking putting them on the swing?

S = Cute, H = Invisible Straw Face

H = Cute, S = Angry Monkey Face

Seriously, are we done yet?

He loves me to death!!!!

His head does this all the time. It makes everything more difficult.

All I ask for is a smile ... and that they be looking in the same general direction. That's all I ask...

And just when I was about to give up, I get the one below.
