So in a week I have only written once, and I was so disappointed in it's content that I didn't even link it to facebook because I thought it was lame-o. If you haven't read it, don't waste your time.

Our family, in fact, attempted to take a card worthy photo, not once, not twice, but on three different occasions. And while you are about to see three different and adorable sets of coordinating outfits on my weirdo, fantastic offspring, please know that my facebook status after round two read a little something like this -
