When the kids were little it seemed easier to get a pretty pic for Christmas. Or maybe I'm hallucinating. I always made sure everyone was dressed semi-nice, somewhat color-coordinated and in a family-friendly pose someplace like a park or fancied up fireplace. They came out nice enough, but it took a good hour and many attempts. So, the last couple of years I have relaxed the standards a bit. Wouldn't do to have everyone dread this one small task that adds so much to our family card. Here is what we got this year:
The color seems off, but I was determined to just get 'er done and get those cards ordered so I didn't obsess over that. I think it turned out well - all of us were looking at the camera, with a smile, no one making silly hand gestures, and no tee shirts with questionable logos.
