Christmas Card Photo Out-takes

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

It seems as if my plans to get things done early so I wouldn't be stressed during the holiday season is just becoming a way for me get stressed earlier.  


Last week, I made the girls a jumper and skirt for our Christmas pictures.  I love the squirrel cordoroy print from Joann's and Simplicity pattern 9854-that I'm sure I will be using again. 


So on Saturday's agenda was our family photo shoot.  I always am tempted to show all our out-takes and attempts to get the one kind of acceptable picture we'll use.  If last years attempt was tough with 3 kids, this years photo-now with 4, should have been no surprise. 





Happy Holidays!

I have friends who fly in the face of conventional by sending various outtakes as their card! I love the idea, but can't make myself do it!

Kristen I love that dress! She looks too cute! Love the photos too... ;)

And that is why we haven't sent a card out in years...

(and before that we did a collage of the kids individually, and even THAT was pushing it)

I'm with Beth - I think the outtakes adorable!
