we attempted to take family pictures this morning. obviously the boys didn’t cooperate. and by cooperate i mean smile for an hour while being moved from perfect location to perfect location with maybe one outfit change…each.

ok, those weren’t really my expectations. just my hopes. i am longing to capture this moment, in our lives. there little faces. and their smiles. and their voices. because it is so precious. but i suppose the perfectly posed yet casual family photo wouldn’t really capture this time. but this does:

nothing says Merry Christmas like naked watering.
