Life with two kids just takes more patience and more love and more of everything. It has been a wonderful year learning to adjust to our newest family member and a challenging one at times too. This year we decided to only have the kids on the Christmas card in effort to get a picture with only having to get two people smiling at the same time instead of four. In theory it sounds like an easy idea, but the kids proved us wrong.
After 130 pictures we finally found one or two that both kids were at least somewhat smiling. They aren't both looking at the camera, but maybe that can happen next year. I know how much I love getting Christmas cards with pictures and I think that all those other parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents that will be receiving our card will know how long it took just to get the shot that we did. And it not being a perfect picture is what makes it be a perfect for our family to send. We aren't perfect but the good Lord made us perfect in his eyes.
