Christmas in the Time of Cholera

...or something like that. These are to be the enduring memories of Christmas 2008, because, for the first time we can ever remember, we were all sick on Christmas. Luckily Santa braved the bugs and climbed down our chimney to bring a little joy to the girls and boys. Don't believe me? Take a look at the Christmas Joy on Lauren's face as she waits with her bucket to come downstairs! Witness the Christmas Spirit invading Beth as she prays on the couch! And behold the advanced state of meditation Patrick has achieved on the floor! And check out Trevor, he's uh, actually Trevor's pretty happy. He didn't get sick until Saturday. Just in time to foil plans for his birthday! Yay!

photo shoot

Last week we attempted the 'family portrait'... We contemplated getting pictures taken in our hockey jerseys... 'cause we all have them. But, after a very successful adventure to a thrift store where Lauren and I found the cutest outfits ever... we opted for another route.
And, since some of the nicer prints will be making themselves into Christmas presents for grandparents, aunts and uncles... here are a few from the shoot that didn't make the cut...

No Trevor... don't put that in your mouth...

The famous levitating red gift box!

Lauren "blowing" the kitty off that nice lady's head... Let's just say I'd never make it as a kid photographer... those people have so much energy, and the smiles... They were working it!

Trevor loves using his new climbing skills to get on chairs. He's been in and out of this chair all morning.
