We celebrated a seriously delightful Christmas with Kick Ass Wife’s family at a house we rented for a week in Driggs, Idaho. It was awesome.
On the last day, we took some pictures.
Perpetual Motion decided to do some photo bombing.
I’ll give P Motion the benefit of the doubt in this one. He’s got his usual Kermit-the-Frog picture smile as KAW and I refer to it, but the eye-closing could be a coincidence. Plus, Tax Credit #4 has kind of chosen his own focal point somewhere off in the distance, and his cousin is gazing down toward the bottom of the staircase. Also, my hair just isn’t laying right.
Okay, take two.
Noooooo!! This is the perfect family picture! For God’s sake, even the 2-year-old and 18-month-old are looking at the camera with their eyes open! Hellcat with her hand in her chin like she’s rocked the adorable child shot a 1000 times? And the missing front teeth? Hello? Sing along: All I want for Christmas are my…
This is frickin’ Hallmark gold, people! Gold I tell ya!
Except for the 5-year-old who is very clearly — and very purposefully now — scrunching up his face into a look that could probably best be described as “small boy stepping in fresh reindeer crap.”
But, alas, P Motion saved his best for last.
I give you The Nutty Professor.
At least his eyes are open.
I laugh so hard every time I look at this shot.
So maybe this is the perfect family picture.
ECKO UPDATE: He’s still alive. Six days and counting, y’all!
