Monday Madness

One of my early posts when first blogging was of our futile attempt to obtain a decent Franzen family picture. It was actually therapy to post some of the MANY pictures that would not be used on last year’s Christmas card….take a look.

Well we attempted the madness again recently. Those of you with little ones know why this is such a process.

I did not expect my easy-going, fun Tori to be such a toot when it comes to smiling for pictures. It is as if she knows it irks mom so she purposely won’t smile.

Here is a one of us having fun amidst the madness….see she would not even cooperate in a goofy picture...


I am tempted to use it as our Christmas card photo…what do you think?

as much as we all want the 'perfect' picture to send out...i'm telling you that if i got a picture like this in my mail- it would be far and away my favorite! and not just because we're twins seperated at birth eitehr:0)

this says far more about your personalities and your daily reality than all the good shots in the world!

Last year I sent a card that had 2 pictures. One was a normal one and the other, Cooper was tired and sucking his thumb so we got a picture of that. It wasn't until later that I noticed Brooklyn was sticking her tongue out too. We got a lot of compliments on that. Hey if you want, you can send my Christmas card just like that and I would laugh so hard!!!!

I hear ya on the process of getting a good Christmas photo. We attempted this feat on Sunday. Gage is our stinker and made getting the "perfect" photo an impossible task. I totally agree with Heidi that this photo would by far be the best one to receive. I say go for it!

I guess I'm in agreement with everyone else . . . that would make a GREAT Christmas card!! : )

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I LOVE it! You should totally use this picture. It would be one of those pictures we all could relate to :-)
