There’s this tree up the street from me that is stunning. I told the kids it is a fairy tree and they totally believed me.
Miles thought he was at the home of Peter Pan and The Lost Boys. He was stoked.
Sophia is pretty convinced she is a fairy so it was no problem getting her to pose for the camera. It was hard to get her to look forward because she swore she saw fairies.
I am determined to get our holiday picture on this tree but it turns out baby Violet is only 10 months old and has no idea what the hell a fairy is so this impressive fact did not sway her opinion of the tree. Being only a baby, she could not get past the rough bark under her tush.
Miles tried to be a gentleman and hold her, but it looks like she is quite a handful. I have no idea what Sophia is doing here. She did not volunteer to help.
So, we will go back to the tree next weekend and try again for a holiday picture that includes all 3 of our children smiling. I will bring a little blanket for Violet’s sensitive behind. And maybe a little bit of luck and pixie dust I can get the picture I want…3 happy kids…and not overexposed.
That’s probably asking too much, right?
