Wordless - Yeah Right! I've got babies!

If you know me, you know that our company had a lot of babies born this year.  It was pregnancy announcement after pregnancy announcement.  We would count down until the next baby was set to arrive - March, May, July, Novemeber, and 3 days later in November.  To say that 2011 is full of blessings just might not cut it.

So when I guilt tripped my dad into dressing up as Santa for Liam, an idea was born.
All the babies.
Matching outfits.
"Gomer" as Santa.
My parents house.

The outfits were made.  The babies arrived.  The babies were dressed.  Gomer was dressed...
And then we couldn't decide on how to hold/position/set the babies.

We got Mrs. Claus dressed.
And we were ready.

I hope you are picturing and imagining attempting to get 5 babies, aged 6 weeks to 9 months all happy, all smiling, all looking at the camera, all upright - all at the same time.

We're crazy right?
No way!!!  We The babies ROCKED it!!

Liam (5m), Jackson (9.5m), Kaylee (7w), Danica (8.5m), Tristan (6.5w)

The ideas were endless, but the babies' patience was not.  Babies outside.  All of us outside.  By the pool.  Laying down with their butts in the air (showing their numbers)...and on and on.  
But it was cold. 
The babies started crying.
Yet - we continued the pictures.
#2 and #3 are REALLY mad in this photo

Again, #2 and #3 are REALLY mad in this photo

And the moms - you can see who is REALLY mad in this photo

And then, what started the entire idea.  My little guy.  
Mesmerized by Santa.  Mesmerized by his cousins.

I'm so glad we did this, but I do wish I had gotten a photo of my sister - she looked exhausted during this ordeal.  

And can you imagine - there was talk of repeating this next year!  When they are all mini toddlers!
