Since I decorated the blog for Christmas, I figured I would kick things off this week with a Christmasy post…..
Last weekend I took the kids out for what I thought would be our first attmept at the Chrismtas Card picture. Nick was not really in the mood and Sarah was pretty bushed from her bday party the night before, but I could not ignore that it was sunny and a very warm 55 Degrees. I told Nick that if we waited until Thanksgiving weekend, it would probably be freezing outside……better to do it on a warm day. Reluctantly, he agreed……..
So here is a little preview. This was not what I envisioned for our Christmas Card……but sometimes you just need to be able to roll with it, so that is what I did:) I won’t tell you which photos I used……or what the card looks like, that part will stay a surprise til later.
This last photo makes me laugh…… I almost deleted it as I went through trying to find a few keepers. I love Nick’s expression and her pouty face….that bottom lip is hilarious!! This was near the end of the day……. I knew that Miss Sarah hit the wall and there was no turning back.
I jumped in the car thinking….We are going to need to reshoot this, cause I got NOTHING!!
Let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and downloaded…. As I said, the pics were not exactly what I wanted, but I think they are workable:)
Hope Everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!! Ours was very nice…….we are still working our way through the leftovers:) One of the benefits of hosting…….you get all the leftovers!! I made a great Turkey Barbecue…….It is fantastic. I will share the recipe later this week. I am officially back to blogging:)
Have a great week!!
