Family Does 'Real' Christmas Card Photos That Get Crazier Each Year

Are you one of those families who loves to send out a Christmas card every year? If you are then this story is for you. This family tried to take a traditional family Christmas picture but soon realized it just wasn't possible.

In fact, it was a disaster but they decided to use it anyway. Now they go out of their way to stage imperfect pictures year after year.

The first time the Stanleys tried to take a Christmas photo with their baby everything went wrong.

But, they sent the card out anyway and their family loved it.

So, they decided to not show a perfect family portrait every year, but instead show the real chaos that happens when you raise kids.

Next year they continued that tradition.

Now that the kids are a bit older, the Stanleys get them more involved in the photoshoots and the results just keep getting more hilarious.

Oh gosh, lol.

The family explains that the hardest part is to get the kids to look the right way.

They use tricks like putting bells on a pole to get their attention.

Now that they've been doing this for six years, there's no point in posing for regular pictures.

After all, their family and friends would be disappointed if they didn't continue.

The funniest part of this for me is that the family dog is also involved in every picture.

I gotta say that's one obedient pup. Ha, ha. I love this!

Looks like I'm not the only one impressed with these pics.

After they were posted online, they garnered a ton of comments and interest from other people who were wowed.

Some even wondered how they have time to photoshop all of this with all these kids running around.

But I say, where there's a will, there's a way. LOL!
