Well's that time of year again. The time that makes all parents of toddlers begin to quake in their boots. Christmas family Portrait time. I happen to think that parents of triplets and more get a harder shake than parents of kids of different ages. Usually in that case at least one child is not mobile.

For us, the following is true:
3 are VERY mobile.
0 are interested in posing for pictures in their new and uncomfortable clothes.

2 are totally FREAKING out about the crowd, the tacky back drops, the weird photograper, & the noise in the porttrait studio.

3 are more interested in eating raisins of the germ-infested floor than looking at 4 goofy adults singing "if You're happy & you know it..." at full volume.
1 is sick & is clinging to Delmo (Elmo in Toddlerease) as though his life depends on it.
1 is LOSING HER MIND & shrieking at the top of her lungs during first 20 mins of photo shoot.
12-15 parents were staring at the parents of the child who was shrieking at the top of her lungs as they attempt to comfort her by singing "if You're Happy and you know it...'.
1 is the number of Zanex Mommy took before this whole shinnanegan began.
15 is the number of alcholic beverages Mommy was wishing she had for breakfast when all hell was breaking lose at the portrait studios this afternoon.
At any rate--we all survived and Mommy didn't resort to drinking anything stronger than a Diet Dew--it was a 44 oz one, but who's counting right?

So here are some of the good, the bad & the ugly...

Those pictures are great! I like pictures that show some of the chaos that comes with taking pictures.
