We ventured out this weekend to take our Christmas card pictures. It did not go well. At all. The kids looked cute, but that's as far as we got toward a successful picture...
It was freezing cold.
One kid stepped in dog poo.
The other sat in duck poo.
It started to rain.
We headed home to de-poo-ify, dry off and try for an indoor photo. No one was hip on the idea, especially the two-year-old. And if anyone was eaves-dropping they might have overheard a couple of parents who teetered between acting like complete clowns and spewing threats in attempt to elicit smiles. (Makes me laugh thinking about the possible stories behind the pictures on all of the Christmas cards arriving in the mail). It wasn't pretty, and as you can see it didn't quite work out. I'm trying to formulate plan B...
Hopefully Kristin's got her pictures ready because she'll be getting a set of Perfect Sentiment custom cards. Thanks to all who left comments. I appreciate it!!
