Having a baby brings a whole other element to sending out Christmas cards. In the past, we've just looked for humorous or cute cards. But now that we have a child.... he should be on the card, right??? And it should be easy. Just take a cute picture. Put it on the card. Kids always cooperate.............right???
Well we found out the hard way that it's not quite THAT easy, but Jack was a trooper for the most part. After three DAYS of pictures, we proudly present picture number 57 - FINALLY a keeper!!! :) I guess once we have more kids we can multiply that number by 2 or 3 or 4....???? :)
Here are some of the pictures that didn't make the cut:
"What the Heck Are You Guys Doing?"
Gandalf Santa (Lord of the Rings)
Neil Diamond Santa - (a.k.a. - Hairy Chest Santa - all I need is a gold chain)
Shaving Cream Santa
That's It! We're finished! It's Attack of the Crabby Santa!
So after a lot of effort we took finally got the "perfect" spontaneous, candid picture - this is the kind of stuff people only do with their 'first' kids, right? :)
