theidearoom Took some Christmas Card photos today... Family pictures usually make me feel like a mean, crazy lady. Today, although certainly not perfect, was so much better.

  •   thingsilovedaboutyou Family pics make me feel like the Incredible Hulk. I start out all mild mannered, Smile! But after a billion attempts at getting them to stand up, quit poking your brother, and stop making weird faces, The veins in my face start bulging, I turn green and start yelling, For the love of all things decent , Just look at the camera!!! 3w
  •   overthebigmoonlisa I've given up for now. I'll try again in a few years 3w
