Christmas Pictures

For the first time ever, I got the kids matching Christmas pajamas.  Oh, I thought it would be SO cute to get a picture of the three of them in front of the tree.  Maybe in a few years that will work.  But certainly, no time soon.  
















So, there's your Christmas pictures from The Holton Family.  Pretend it's a card, that you just received in the mail.  Because that's not going to happen, either.  I haven't mailed out Christmas cards since 2007.  I've gone paperless.  It's all about the environment, I say.  No, really it's about the time and the cost.

Merry Christmas my friends!

Hahahaha, BEST. PICTURES. EVER. I literally laughed out loud looking at those. My favorite is Cooper crying, Harlie reaching for you, and Murphy staring at Harlie. Then there's Harlie in the back ground still posing (beautifully, I might add) and the boys are wrestling. HA! Love those kids! :) Merry Christmas Holtons! XOXO Love, Liz

Merry Christmas! So you are a normal family with normal squirmy children. Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy New year!

You know Kristy, that's frustrating while it's happening, but years from now those will be some of your favorite pictures, I bet. Your kids are adorable! I didn't do cards this year either. And I didn't get the pajamas, didn't do the avent calendar. Didn't bake cookies. Some of my family might not even be getting gifts. Bah Humbug!

Love all of the pictures! I haven't sent out Christmas cards since 2007 either. (the beach picture of the kids was the last one - hard to top that one).

Merry Christmas to the Holtons from the Schrootens!

Great pictures! You're a step ahead of me. I haven't even gotten pictures of the boys in front of the tree yet. No cards here either.

Pictures are worth a thousand words. They look just like three normal kids not wanting to sit for a second to get pictures taken...love the one with Cooper crying "mama let me move please". see you soon. can't wait to spend christmas with the kids!

Hahaha I love these pictures! I know you are looking for the "perfect" picture of the kids under the tree, but these are ideal. This is LIFE - and it's awesome. :) Thanks for sharing your family with us.

Oh, I love these pictures. I am sure it was frustrating not to get the 'perfect' picture but these are awesome and capture what Christmas is really like with kids so well. Merry Christmas.
