I don’t know about you, but I love pictures in my Christmas cards. I love to see pictures that include my friends and not just their kids. I want to see how my cousin really looks and not just their kids. I want to see my siblings with their kids, and not just their kids.
So each year, I get the crazy idea in my head that it is a good idea to take family pictures.
Nothing fancy of course, because we just don’t plan it out well enough. I just want a casual “we are all together and dressed up” kind of picture.
This year, we added a sweet Goldendoodle puppy to the family. He was born at the end of August and already is a beast! His name, Bear, fits him to a T. He is like a giant teddy bear.
So this last weekend, I rallied the troops. We thought wrangling them on the stairs would help hold the puppy in too.
I had my sweet hubby snap a few pictures of me too. I needed to update all my pictures on my social media. My other picture was almost two years old.
I think he did a great job. I had great plans to have my hair colored and cut before pictures. Life happens and I’m real. Let’s just pretend the grey streaks are actually highlights, K?
I think this one is actually my favorite picture. It makes me really happy. I love how it isn’t technically great, but it is so us.
We opted for this one. And I like it too.
Now I’m sewing my fingers off trying to catch up on all my Christmas sewing!
How about you? Do you love picture cards? Do you include yourself in the pictures? I sure hope you do.
