Knowing that today was the day I’d take down all holiday decorations on this blog, I decided I needed a new picture of me and the kids. It’s difficult to catch all of us dressed up and in the right mood to be photographed. Arielle and I are usually in comfy clothes and Kai always looks at me with beady eyes when I say I want to take pictures.

Just before we left for our friend’s new years celebration, I announced picture time. Kai rolled his beady eyes, Arielle refused to put on a cardigan, (I’m too old fashion and thought she needed one) and Eric went on a rant about how we should wait until today to take the pictures so we’d have sunlight. Our living room was too dark. But because they all know that when I get an idea in my head it’s best to let me follow through… or else. They put up with my request and we had quite an interesting photo shoot. Feel free to leave a comment here or on Facebook as to your favorite.


Smile and pretend we are not posing in front of our kitchen pantry.


Arielle loves it when people sit on her lap for pictures. Especially her mom.


Little brother? Not anymore.


I remember when I used to carry him.


I'm smiling but hoping I'm not about to hit the floor. I really like the coffee maker and dirty dishes in the background. No beautiful sunsets please, I'll go with the sink full of dishes.


Seriously - please don't drop me.


Maybe we should stick with the old photo.


What happened to these two? 2012 - really?

Happy New Year!
