Priceless:

A picture of the grandparents with 5 of their 6 grandkids.

Getting Noah in the picture???
I don't get paid enough.


Here we go.
He's in the picture frame...

Getting closer...

Closer...

And closer...

Made it.

Now if we could get him to look...

Or smile...

And we have a winner!!!
(or as close as we're going to get)

Uh-oh...

We're losing him...

Things are rapidly deteriorating...

And he's done.

SMILE!!!

only those present at the time will understand the significance of the above.
But while we're on the subject...

"I just googled great wall of china."
"I just want to sit here and keep pretending that fire hydrant is Grandma's house."
"The Circle of Death."
"You wouldn't eat hot tamales in Hawaii."
"Would you rather..." [there are just too many ways I could finish that sentence]
"Fork!"
"I've never seen such a dolly as this!"
"I'm not an American anymore."
"A year is a long time."
"Bosty and Meomee."
"That's Alex's favorite game."

[That wasn't nearly as fun for you as it was for me]
But...

Hope your Christmas was Merry.
Ours was.
and maybe you'll hear about it next month

perfect post to sum up our trip, or at least the last day! you forgot to mention Bosty's unicorn though. Or maybe that is just what mom called it. it was so much fun. i think the hardest i laughed was when you screamed "SMILE" I'm laughing out loud right now just remembering it. so priceless. thanks for the memories sister. best christmas ever. or maybe that was whislter, but close ~ and the temperature was the same!!

Faye said...

Hey - are you two ganging up on me?

Faye said...

I I have to agree with Sheli - I will never hear the word "Smile" again without thinking of you :)
Thanks to everyone for all the great memories - it was a wonderful Christmas - I was so glad we got to share it all with you.

John said...

JoAnna said...

Randy and Tiffany said...

if february wasn't right around the corner I would be crying right now...
sounds like you guys had so much fun! im glad...and sad me and Randy and Madden missed it all. Cute pic of mom and dad with the grandkids...and I hate to break it to you, but you are going to have to somehow convince Noah to take another picture like this in february when Madden can be in the picture too.
Sorry Noah.

Love the stream of pictures with dialogue. I have to say, at least you have one winner, sometimes I feel like I take 100 including bribes and tight-lipped words and not a one turns out. You nailed it, way to go!

I love these pictures. And your commentary. It's nice to know other people have such a hard time too! Your family is so fun.
