The Christmas Picture

Oh, Christmas pictures. The joy. The family unity. The cooperation of children with their totally relaxed parents.

I didn’t ban the children from the room multiple times during setup because they kept tripping on the light cords.

I didn’t threaten to ban a child from the Christmas picture altogether, thereby erasing him from our family (for at least one year).

One of our kids didn’t break a piece of the nativity set.

That same kid didn’t sit on a present like a chair, smashing it.

Mmm, hmm. That’s what happened.

Well, regardless of what really happened, we did get some fun pictures.
