Christmas Tradition #6 from the pigpen

I started sending Christmas cards after I graduated college.  After we had Big Sissy, we included a photo with our Christmas card or sent a photo card of the kids.  5 years ago we started the tradition of taking our annual Christmas card photo with the kids thanks to a suggestion from Ice Tea.  This year, Big Sissy, Bubby, and Little Sissy all wanted to old a pig so we were quite literally 3 kids and lots of pigs.

I thought I'd share some of our outtakes  as there are a lot of them because if taking a picture with 3 kids isn't hard enough only someone like me would add not one, but three live pigs to the mix.  As usual, after about 20 pictures, we ended up using the very first picture I took for our Christmas card thanks to closed eyes, moving and/or non-smiling kids, moving pigs, hair in the eyes, and operator error to name a few.

So with no further ado, here are some of our outtakes:

What do you do for your Christmas card picture?



  1. My parents started the tradition of photo Christmas cards WAY back when I was a baby. We've continued it with our family. This was the first time in 26 years that we had just us on the card. Next year, we'll start the next generation, since we have our first granddaughter due in January! We always had plenty of outtakes, too! Merry Christmas!

  2. Our Christmas picture is very different... Some people claim to enjoy it, while others just ask to be removed from our list ;)

  3. Oh my gosh these pictures are adorable! I can see why you would have a hard time choosing just one! smile..

    Blessings and Merry Christmas!

  4. Happy and merry Christmas..And Advance happy new year to the bloggers..Happy holidays to all..

  5. we do Christmas cards with the kids and the farm critters, too! If we get a nice day, then out we all go and see if we can make magic happen. But I take individ pictures of kids with an animal and them make a collage card. Kudos to you for trying to get them all in a pic together!
