A little tougher with two.

Last week we took our usual Christmas card photos and let me say, it was work! Every time I would get a good picture of Jackson, Drew would be looking the other way.


Or, I would get a good picture of Drew and Jackson would be looking away. 


I ended up using the key element that seems to help in these situations. M & M's and strawberry milk. It worked like a charm and I finally ended up with one of both of them that was perfect. 



And by perfect I mean that... 
1. They are both looking at me.
2. No one is crying or screaming.
3. Jackson doesn't have drool running down his chin.
4. Drew isn't covering his eyes.

Good job getting them both to look, nothing wrong with a little bribe! That first one of Jackson is so good!

A perfect picture indeed!! I can relate so well (3 boys). And me being the genious I am, I did a calendar featuring those little boys! Took 4 months to get 12 photos of them!!! It was the hardest job I've ever done! LOL!

Drew has definitely crossed over to the big boy look. There's nothing babyish about him. That's how Em is and some days it makes me sad. I can't believe how much hair Jackson has!

Thanks for the chipboard goodies by the way! I can't wait to use them!

Hey Chica! Drew is a ball of cuteness. I just want to pinch his cheeks. Love all three pictures. Gotta love the candid shots right?

Good job with the m&m's whatever works. Your boys are getting bigger and even more cuter every day.
