Edit: My mom just informed me that I didn't sign her Christmas card. Oops! Good thing she recognized her grandchildren. I wonder which other cards didn't get signed. Guess that's what happens when you try to multi-task one too many things. ☺
So I made a photo collage that is now my blog header. It's really cute, but unfortunately, when I printed it as a 4 x 6 photo, the faces were all too small. Sigh.
Then, out of the blue, without prompting, I happen to notice that all my kids were playing (nicely, I might add) in a red plastic boat. And they were all happy. So I whipped out my ever-handy camera and snapped one shot. Lo and behold, it worked! It's not perfect by any means. Nolan's head looks huge, the boys are not dressed in nice Christmasy sweaters, and I didn't like the background, so it took some time to crop all that out. But, hey, beggars can't be choosy.
At least Lexi is wearing her Russian Snow Maiden costume.
Starting January 1st, I will be saving up for next year's photo and will let the professionals work their magic! I'm done.
I didn't think I would get photos of Preston and Garrett with Santa this year. Thankfully, he paid a visit to their school for me. Did you know that it is not considered cool for a 6th grader to sit in Santa's lap? Good thing Preston is a good sport!
Lexi at the N@shville Symph0ny waiting for the NSO children's Christmas concert to begin.
Nolan and Liam thought it was a bit silly.
After the concert, Preston and Garrett were in a quick group shot of the Boy Choir and Concert Choir outside the Schermerh0rn Symph0ny Center
The performance was wonderful, but I know all the boys are glad to get a break until the next symphony concert series in February.
