2010 Holiday Bliss - Dec 11


Tonight's bliss is in preparation for our annual Christmas pictures. It has been an annual event since we have had children to take a Christmas picture and then to put them in a card and mail them out.

This year I did a blog post for Shutterfly a while back. Go and check it out ... I'll wait.

Okay so Ive finally been able to get the outfits and get everyone together and get someone who can take the pictures for us. I also made sure I had found the perfect setting for this year's picture.

The hardest part of this year's pictures has got to be Seanan. He would not sit still. However, I was able to coax him after I remembered that I had my "treats" hadny that I use for potty training incentives. Want to know what they are? Marshmallows! Yep, I got him to sit still and say cheese and smile and then I would give him a marshmallow for his cooperation. I think he was able to score about 10 (way too many), but I got the pictures I needed.

I won't be sharing our picture just yet. As soon as we have picked which card we will be using I will post our choice as well as a few of my favorite shots. But the activity of getting the whole family dressed and ready to go to take the infamous picture has got to be a sure sign that Christmas is just around the corner.

I shared my Holiday Bliss ; so what's yours? Go ahead and share with us over at Garden of Learning.
