Christmas Card Nightmare!

All I wanted was a Christmas card with 3 decently happy children looking at the camera. They didn't even have to be smiling big...just not crying.

I've sent out my cards already. And I have 2 different ones going out because I had to order more and didn't want to do it online. I have to say I not thrilled with either them. I had to just settle on mediocre. And the worst part is, in one of them, they aren't even all together in the picture. I had to put one picture on the card with Olivia and Landon, and then one smaller pic with just Lillian's face. Because my crazy kids couldn't just look at the darn camera and smile! And the other card is all 5 of us but it's from several months ago. And Lillian doesn't have a bow in her hair. And we all know how I feel about bows!!!

Oh well, there's always next year.....


  1. I like the "less than perfect" cards, myself,and I'm sure everyone will love your card. At least you got one (or two) out. I have pictures to use but STILL haven't gotten cards together.
    Must...get...act...together! :)

  2. I totally think you should've sent the one with Lillian crying. You know we ALL go through that! Getting the "perfect shot" is nothing less than a miracle! Last year our card featured two of each child because I couldn't get a shot of them smiling and happy together! :) Merry Christmas! They ARE precious!

  3. That is precious! Annie's right...everyone will love your card. :) It is looking more and more like we'll be doing "Happy New Year" cards...what a way to celebrate Jesus' procrastinating.

  4. I just got your card about 2 minutes ago and I LOVE IT! I thought is was precious. I sent yours out yesterday... mine are not all looking at the camera either.:)

  5. Okay...I got the card today and I think it looks great!

  6. I think your card looks GREAT!! I know how you feel. It is almost impossible for me to get a good picture of all 3 of my boys looking at the camera!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
