So this post is about four months late . . . baby #5 has kept me very busy the past six months and I was just happy to have 30 minutes to get these pictures of my silly kids during the holidays last year. I took these for a scrapbooking mini album I made. I knew I wanted them in red shirts, with elf hats (I bought 2 years ago), on a black background. Of course the baby didn't have a red shirt, but his elf hat was different anyway. I also knew that I didn't want 'perfect children shots,' I wanted my kids being silly and casual. Here are my favorites of that 30 minutes.
