After a day of preparing for Christmas - shopping, returning certain items, finding the right sizes, colors, shapes; making gifts and delivering goodies - I was able to sit down and relax after our traditional chili and rice supper.
And it was photo op time too. The kids were bathed and in their brand new jammies, so we had a little fun with it.
Getting 5 kids to cooperate was hard enough; getting a 20-month old to participate was near-impossible. So we tried some funny stuff.
It isn't as easy as it sounds to sit upside down on a couch.
But they managed to hold it for a few seconds. And then they turned the camera on us.
Of course my husband decided to goof around also.
The kids got to pick out one gift to open on this night, and then they were off to bed, a little late, and full of excitement for the next day!
