For all my fussing about how Thanksgiving is a fall holiday, I did let a little Christmas into the day to take our Christmas card photo before changing to go over to Granna's for turkey. Since we'd be cleaned and preened and have some spare time during daylight hours . . . (i.e. things that don't always happen every day!)
The girls both looked a little tired and under the weather, I'm afraid, adding to the usual challenge of getting two young kids to both smile nicely for (or even just look at) the camera at the same time.
And there was the distraction of the Macy's parade . . .
And the usual impulse to squeeze and torture Little Sister . . .
So I tried getting them to focus on this fun fake poinsettia . . .
Which worked for maybe 30 seconds . . .
And, finally, a lovely family photo that will grace our Christmas card this year.
I ordered from Paper Coterie this year, and can't wait to see them! We've gotten a couple cards so far this year, and I can't wait until they start pouring in! Have you sent yours yet? Gotten them, at least?
