A Christmas Card

Martye insists that we take a big family Christmas card picture. We include our grandchildren. Martye gets really excited and gets the grands matching outfits! We all line up for the picture, but what you don't see is that in front of us my sons and daughter in-laws are jumping around, shaking things and being silly trying to get all of their children to look, smile and be still. All while Holly snaps a few pictures. To say it's chaotic is an understatement. Usually someone is crying, someone is pouting, someone is tickling someone else etc. With four little boys things tend to get a little rowdy!  This only lasts for about three minutes and then everyone seems to fall apart and we are D.O.N.E. It truly is a Simmons Family Circus! Everyone kind of rolls their eyes when it's time for the group picture, but deep down I think we all secretly love having the finished product!

 The inside picture... let's say we did just a "little touch up" to get this result....
