Thankful Thursday! The Completely Crazy Christmas Card Edition...

It took almost 150 snaps of my camera...... along with some "raspberries".....
yep....cute huh!
some serious thumb sucking and then of course some cheek pullinghere's a close up in case you missed it......
Also some hair pulling......
Seriously---can we just not touch each other for 5 cotton pickin' minutes???? at least one monkey face.....
Lots and lots and lots of screaming.........and a little bit of garland in the face.....

But I am soooo THANKFUL----on this Thankful Thursday---- that we finally got ONE picture that was somewhat "Card Worthy" and that I don't have to repeat the dressing of 4 boys, begging them to smile photo taking session again! ugh!...Good job to my little guys and Merry Christmas to you all!

Oh my gosh...my boys have the same sweaters!! Way to go Children's Place...I think that they are adorable...of course, I did not do MATCHING this year because my oldest was complaining, so we got stripes also!!!

Adorable cards!

Love the pictures! It's amazing how much the oldest two resemble each other and then the youngest two look so much a like.

Jen said...

Good job taking the pictures. I give you lots of credit taking pictures of kids is hard work. I couldn't even get a good one of Bo, for my Christmas card.

Great job and great picture for the card! Your boys are so cute!

I had to get the happy bucket out just to view these - don't worry, I had a drink for both of us! :]

Seriously, your boys are gorgeous, you and hubby are blessed, and love the new look of your blog! How is hubby feeling BTW?

Jennifer said...

Stephanie said...

Isn't it a pain to get four to look at the camera all at once! Lord it takes forever. I love the final product!!!

Kingdom Mama said...

Lisa said...

Hi Liz - I found your blog through Kimber's Space. WOW, I can't imagine being a Mom to 4 boys!!! I bet they keep you on your feet (ALL THE TIME). I enjoyed all of the Christmas shots that you posted. They are hilarious and I am sure they took plenty of patience, time and energy. I especially loved the cheek pulling pic (too funny). Thanks for sharing with all of us!!

Maggie said...

Ugh, I can SO relate!!! LOL If you want to have a good picture of your boys - prepare to take 150 of them just for that one or two that you actually like. LOL

Hilarious pictures!! I love it!! The final one is great; what an awesome shot!!

CallansMama said...

Hee hee, the pics are great! I love the outfits! And your new layout is great!

Jane Anne said...

What wonderful photos! You will treasure all of them for years to come- especially the ones that show their personality. The cheek one made me LOL. My kids are the same ages as yours, I think (7,5,3,1). This year I opted to take them to a professional (mostly because it was less stressful for hubby!!).

Elisha said...

Thanks... your boys are so cute too! And I totally laughed my butt off at all the attempted christmas card pictures! I had a very similar scenario with family pictures this past summer...Everyone LOVES the ones I put up but they dont see the hundreds of pictures with crying/screaming/pouting/shooting each other with toy gun pictures.lol. Boys :)

Stephanie said...

There's something for you over at my blog..come check it out.

He And Me + 3 said...

Jane Anne said...

i love the matching outfits. i like to match my three girls, and now with a boy in the mix it's going to be interesting.

heidi said...

Oh man - I TOTALLY Laughed out loud at those. LOL The one where he's pulling at the baby's face?? What IS that? LOL Oh man...sorry. It's funny though.

Gardner Momma said...

Those pictures cracked me up and also warmed my heart. Your boys look so handsome! I love this time of year. The cheek pulling was especially hilarious by the way, but I'm sure you know that already!

Rebecca said...
