The Making of a Christmas Card

Every year we try to take a picture with our boys since they are a big part of our family. Every year it is a challenge. I think this year was the hardest so far. Bradley is a year and a half. He is full size puppy. Brodie is finally healthy and feeling good. That means we are in play mode pretty much all the time. That and they have become best of friends. This is just a glimpse of what it looked like to try and take a picture this year.

Bradley and I sit on the couch while Grandma practices taking test shots. That way we can move quickly when we bring the whole family into the picture. Little did we know that these would be the best pics. Too bad Daddy and Bro were missing.

We call Brodie into the picture. He grabs a toy to bring with him and mayhem ensues in the form of tug-of-war. 

Let's try again. We bring Daddy into the picture. Now it's a game of Jump Up, Jump Down, Jump Up, Jump Down. Our normally LAP-rador Retrievers won't be still.

So here it is! Our family photo. This is the only one where you can see every one's face. Too bad Bradley is sitting off to the side like a little orphaned puppy. But don't be fooled. That was just before he pounced on us. . . again!
 Merry Christmas!
