How do you get the perfect Christmas picture?

I liked how our Christmas Card picture ended up this year (only the kids this time), but I think it is so funny HOW you get to the perfect Christmas photo where everyone happens to be smiling:

I was trying to get them to laugh (instead of cry) and I succeeded.... too well.

"It Just Tickles"

It seems this is every mother's right of passage. She must allow her children to "do" her hair with whatever implement they see fit.

I think Logan's fidora is just awesome... look familiar Aaron? Sorry, not giving it back! By the way, the "just tickles" comment from Logan is what our friend Kelly (who cuts his hair) tells Logan everytime he freaks out about the clippers.

Logan is doing his Darkman impression.

Making a "Gingerboy House"

We made our annual gingerbread house tonight or as Reagan calls it a "gingerboy" house. (They love an episode of Super Why with the gingerboy.) They had a blast and were actually quite good with the self-restraint until Daddy started eating the candy. hehehe... Chase was the most intent on decorating the house of all of the kids. After we finished, Logan said enthusiastically "Mommy! I love it!"

The boys got haircuts today! Yeah!

The finished product!

Logan's Birthday Party - 4 Years Old!

It was Logan's birthday on the 29th of November. We had a pirate birthday party with a Kung Fu Panda cake. Mixing themes! An attrocity!

In the morning, after breakfast, the kids got a treasure map to find buried treasure. (Eye patches, compasses, glittery necklaces, pirate earrings, etc.) Now they could be proper pirates and they fought the big, bad Daddy Pirate!

On second thought, Blake might not like me posting this.... oh, well....

Then Pirate Logan got to open his presents. He got some great gifts from his aunts and "Gram Gram." THANKS!

Only present picture he was smiling in.

Then we went to Peter Piper Pizza for lunch. No one was there... on a Saturday at 11am.... it was awesome to not have to worry who your kids are getting in the way of, etc. Logan insisted on the eyepatch. Next, cake and naptime and we were done with his birthday by 12:30pm! Not bad. Of course, all the kids did for the next few days is play pirates.

What in the.....

I leave my bed for a few minutes early in the morning and I come back to find this....

Hey that is MY spot! (That is Blake in the far right trying to ignore what is going on.)
