In the past (but really just last year because it was marriage year one)
we haven’t done a photo Christmas card.
Honestly, III isn’t really into them. I was telling someone just the other day that we probably won’t send the photo Christmas cards until kids are in the picture, his exact words were “and I don’t even know why then?“
Well, this year Maaaaxxxx came into our lives and I made it my mission to come up with a Christmas photo card to which III just couldn’t say no :o)
These are the auditions:
Max in Lights…took several shots to find one that would work!
Then we tried reindeer ears…
In the end this was my favorite ears picture…how could anyone resist those eyes???
Then I tried both (ears & lights)…by this point Max was getting a little fed up with me :o)
He might even be giving me the evil eye…
At the end of the day I went with Max in lights as our Christmas card hopeful. How could III refuse?
I added a little Christmas wish at the bottom and kept it simple…then I crossed my fingers and showed it to III.
I used Picnik to create this bit of Christmas cheer…and to my surprise, III smiled.
I ordered them from Snapfish for 1 cent a piece!! That is hard to beat :o)
Oh, and those of you who receive one in the mail…please pretend you haven’t already seen it.
Now I just have to hope they will be here before Christmas!
Sharing with a few fabulous ladies!!
