Have a holly jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer
The pic above would reflect these lyrics from days gone by, but in order that all ten of my readers not get the wrong idea and believe that our PandaFamily has it all together and perfect, I have included just a few of the other pics from the morning of our photo shoot. Our wild and precious friend met us up at our church to take our pics for a Christmas card.
We were to meet at 10:30AM, but us three arrived at 10 to do a few things in PandaPop's office first. As we pulled into the parking lot we saw lots of cars and realized there was a funeral going on.
Slight respectful eye-rolling on my part. I did NOT want to take away from the loss and heartache of those attending the funeral, but me and my carnal self had the second thought of "oh great, now we can't take the pics in the right sunlight." Forgive me, Lord! I immediately told my little crew that it was all OK and that we should pray for those attending the funeral and take our pic whenever they were done.
Over an hour later they were done. However, during that time period my sweetheart of a husband let PandaGirl have candy, Coke and an ice cream cone. (Are you asking, "Where was the mother?!"---I was in another room working on a project.)
Can you see where the sugar shock is heading?
Crashing down from all the sugar high fun was PG.....as soon as we were ready to take pics.
Holly Jolly Day.
Suffice it to say, our little family photo shoot was LESS THAN jolly as PG starts getting so giddy that she can't take any pics, that makes me mad, I gripe and threaten, PP is about to kill us both, PG gets huffy-puffy, I get sarcastic, PP shuts down and it pretty much turned out HORRIBLE!
But don't worry! We all made up and the delete button on the camera was put into full use. I wonder what other families have a similar story about the wild fun they had taking family pics?!!! LOL!
Thank you, Wild & Precious Girl for your fun, laughter and for putting up with some cotton-headed-ninny-muggins! ; )
