Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Scenes from Christmas 2007

It was a very jolly day in the P home. The kids were all nestled in their beds until 7:30 am (they awoke much earlier than this but had strict orders to not leave their rooms before the magic hour), they had a joyful time spreading cheer (and paper, and tags, and boxes - but not ribbon and bows as I learned my lesson a few years ago) all through the house, and I didn't hear one complaint for about a good 2 hours that morning. I think that is a record and makes for a very merry Christmas!
