"TRAIN"ing Day

So, my sister and I decided on a recent Saturday morning to take some photos of our sons for Christmas cards. Des (my beautiful sister) takes many of my blog photos, so I feel like she is a competent and talented photographer (see here and here for further proof).  We dressed them up in coordinating outfits- corduroy pants, button-down dress shirts, seasonal sweater vests- and gave them a pep talk. Namely, be good and take pictures and we will take you to meet the REAL Santa Claus.

They immediately agreed. And complete and utter chaos ensued.
OK, sit next to each other.
Stand NEXT to each other! 

Look at us! Hands out of your hair!

Stand NEXT to each other! NEXT TO EACH OTHER!!

We decided to change tactics. "Hey, wanna go take pictures next to the REAL trains?" They agreed to be good and we all trudged down the roads- boys having a blast, moms sweating and cursing under our breath (and trying to avoid the random dead cat on the sidewalk "Hey, guys! Look at that TRAIN!").

Take Two: Railroad Tracks.  And complete and utter chaos ensued (AGAIN).

Look at US! 
Stop touching stuff!
Stand STILL!

LOOK AT US!!!!!!

Might have been good, but I chopped their heads off. Not literally, but I thought about it!

Since they weren't cooperating, Desiree agreed to take some pictures of me. As you can tell, I wasn't really in the mood .
