Kelly’s Christmas Wish

Apparently my normally very un-family friendly, extremely fashion conscience sister has had a secret wish all 22 years of her life.  For the entire family, and I mean entire family to have, wear and take a family portrait in our matching pajamas!

We (as a family…pretty much all of us), spent Thanksgiving evening on the internet looking for matching outfits.  Let me tell you it’s not easy to find matching outfits from size 2T all the way to up adult sizes!  We had to settle on the little girls getting a little bit different ones, but they still turned out cute and were pretty darn close to ours!  Plus, they stood out!  The rest of us are wearing either dark or light grey tops with the same pajama bottoms (thank you Old Navy!)

The ticket for Christmas dinner was to sport your PJ best…and every obliged willingly (very shocking), especially when we all put them on about noon and wore them all day!

Brandi and I were in charge of the photo, so right before dinner we set-up the tripod, which we’d never used before, and Brandi quickly had to learn how the timer worked on her camera and we practiced…


Practice #1 – without Brandi


Practice #2: Brandi made it in, in time!


Now time to throw the rest of the family in!


Take #1:  Oops, we aren’t ready…plus no Brandi!

Take #2:

Take #3IMG_5643

Take #4

You can take your own pick on which photo was best!  Grandma and Sue are hidden, we’ll have to get better at this whole posed photo thing!  Oh well, not to  bad for a whole bunch of amateurs taking family photos!  Sounds like this is going to be a new tradition, so we can try again next year!!

On a side note…we did break the couch lol!  There was a large CRACK and SHIFT when all of us were on it….the poor couch didn’t like all the attention!  But don’t worry, Kelly got her wish, and we took the photo!

I have a lot of Christmas posts coming up…so stay tuned!
