NaBloPoMo #19 - Xmas Rejects

(c) 2011 Ms. Huis Herself at

We attempted to accomplish one of my least favorite holiday things today.

The taking of the Christmas card photos.

Last year I got off easy, since we just used the church directory family photo. No need to figure out holiday outfits early, no need to convince the girls to HOLD STILL and SMILE, no, not like that, a REAL smile and LOOK at the CAMERA please and...

Hopefully I got enough good shots today (I'm NOT a photographer!) to pull together a decent Christmas card, but I thought you might enjoy seeing a few of the rejects.


 'Cuz who doesn't wonder what the end of their sash tastes like?

Getting your picture taken is simply HILARIOUS, isn't it?!

Anon - I liked it, too... which is why I posted it here at least! :)

I've been putting this off and I know it's creeping up on me. I love the hilarious shot, too :-)

Cute! We are waiting for a tooth to fall out here before I attempt to put something together for ours :)
