This picture didn’t make the Christmas card

Check out my new “About” page photo. Digital photography and Veronica are amazing; this last minute photo came hot on the heels of a seriously stressful kid-only Christmas card photo shoot (I just had a baby, cut me some slack). That look on my face? Sheer panic. This was one of my first big outings with all four kids and no wing man. That look is a classic “Dear Abby, What Have I Done?” expression. Thankfully, no infants were harmed in the shooting of this picture–only older children.


  1. Awww, it’s so cute! I loved your card, BTW.

  2. I think this is adorable! Perfect for your About page.

  3. I absolutely love this photo! You make panic look really, really good!

  4. You seriously underestimate how capable and beautiful you are, Annie.

  5. You might have felt panicked but you look like a truly capable, loving mom.

  7. Love it, love it, love it. Merry Christmas, my friend!

  8. Adorable!! And you look awesome by the way! (I on the other hand, have some work to do!) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Miss you!

  9. I don’t see the expression you described . . . . . you look fantastic, but with all those gorgeous children sitting around you, you are going to lose the focus girl!

  10. So cute! I love that Georgia is squished right in the middle!

  11. It shoulda it’s the best one 😉 Merry Christmas you beautiful thing.
