Christmas Card Outtakes

December 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

It’s been a looooooong time since my last post.  As a new blogger, let me just say that blogging is like a full-time job! Between my actual job, taking care of the kiddos, life, etc, it’s hard to find the time.  However, my goal is to start trying to make posting a regular habit.  I’ve taken a new position at work and I’ve signed up for a 10K (in January) and a 1/2 marathon (in April)—GULP!  So, it seems that I will have a lot to share. 

Anyways, we spent the majority of the afternoon working on our family Christmas card.  Usually we just end up buying some random cards and then forget to send them out.  { I found the ones from last year with all of our stored Christmas decorations–unopened}.  This year we decided to go the personalized route and order one from Tiny Prints.  {We chose the Peaceful Doe design}.

As anyone with kids knows, it was quite an ordeal to get a good picture of the “lil ladies”.  Corbett is four and like any four-year old, won’t sit still for more than 30 seconds.  Constance is only 8 months, so she can go from smiling to crying in a blink of the eye.  Even though it basically took all afternoon to get a shot, {plus some extensive work in Photoshop by my husband} it was all worth it in the end.

The finished product

I leave you with one of my favorite outtakes from our afternoon “photo shoot”.

Do you send christmas cards?  Are they personalized or store-bought?
