Christmas Pictures

I attempted to take Christmas pictures of the chilluns yesterday morning. I gave up trying to get any of all three of them together, but I did end up getting some cute individual shots. I started with Peanut because he's the only one who actually stays where you put him.

And I just happened to catch him smiling.

A kiss for "rudder".

Cutie was next. He moves around a LOT!
Yes, he's eating decorations off the tree. At least it slowed him down a bit.

On to my extremely well-behaved and well-mannered offspring.

When she starts dating, she'll be sorry she didn't behave better during picture-taking sessions. Her dates will see this photo. (Bwa ha ha ha!)

We call this the Miss Sassy-Frass face.

Lucky for her, I did get some good shots of Ellie.

Because of our unusual family situation this year I decided not to send out Christmas cards. Technically we can't include the boys in our family, but they are so much a part of us right now that we can't leave them out either. So, consider this your Christmas card from us.

Merry Christmas from the Hillmans !

ps- I knitted the boys' vests and Ellie's shrug. I think they turned out pretty cute!


  1. I was going to ask you yesterday if you made the vests and shrug. They were adorable. I am very impressed.

  2. Cute pictures of cute kids! The vests and shrug are so cute to.

  3. Merry Christmas to you, too. Nice work on the knitting. You did a great job.

  4. Darling pictures. Very impressive. We should start a business together! I know I say this all the time but.... you need to teach me how to knit. You do such a great job!

  5. The vest and shrugs are adorable (not to mention the kids in them!)! What talent!

  6. Your pics turned out great! The kids are adorable and great job on the knitting!
