Photo Op

 Do you have any holiday traditions?

We have this photo op thing that we do.

It always starts out pretty normally...

By the end, we may as well be on some ride at Disneyland.

It's pretty fun.

There's always some type of jumping involved.

My brother-in-law had to work, but he drove up unexpectedly after a 5 hour plane flight.

When he got here, he didn't ask about the turkey... 
he wanted to know if we already did the photos.
They are that much of a tradition.

We ended up taking photos with him the next day.

We're all giving him the thumbs up, cause he was in The Muppets.
It was the first time he wasn't a terrorist or a murder victim, so the kids got to go.
The movie was hilarious... we laughed ourselves silly.
Alvin is in the anger management scene, and you can see him in back of Jack Black
for all of about 3.7 seconds before the fight breaks out.

When we got back, he said I should take his new-to-him car on a "love cruise" with Patrick.
You are actually going to allow me to drive this? I asked.
He apparently hasn't read about my tendency to do donuts in vacant lots.

But who was I to argue with his wishes.
Ummm... this car has serious power.  
Could go 80 mph with just a slight tap on the gas pedal kind of power.
(Not that I did or anything.)
It was exhilarating!! 
Nothing against my sweet van, but I think I might need one of these, someday!
I think a Mustang would go really well with my ballet flats, don't you? 
It's a total mom car, right?

I love this tradition what a fun memory your kids will have. Mouse and Steve are going to the movie on Saturday they will have to look for him

LOVE your family photo tradition! You all are so cute.

I think you do need a mom car like that. When my youngest turns 16, I'm totally going back to a sports car.

That photo session is AWESOME! I love it!!
Never argue with an offer to "love cruise" with the hubs, especially if child care comes with it!
Mustang + ballet flats = perfection
