we took our holiday card picture this weekend. we try every year, both on april fool's day and christmas, to make fun and original cards. and by every year, i mean the last two years. last year, we did a mad men sort of card (you can see it here) and the kids did funny pictures for april fool's day (you can see them here and here). anyways, this year, we tried to outdo last year's card. i don't think we did, but as soon as we send them out, i will post it here and you can all be the judge.
the point of my story isn't whether or not we outdid last year's card (we didn't), but to tell you how ridiculous i was while making this card. you see, on thursday morning, we knew it was going to be warm for most of the day, and then would get cold for the rest of the
weekend year, so i wanted to get the card done on thursday. i got everyone dressed, all of our hair and makeup done, the whole shebang set up outside, and we snapped about 20 pictures. i could tell as we were taking the pictures that i wasn't going to love them, and i didn't. but, it was starting to get cold, and i chose the best of the 20 and sent it to my sisters for comments. my youngest sister emailed back and said, "bjorn (her husband) looked at the pic and said, 'daaaaammn, megan's got a booty!'" and i knew, that coming from him, that was a compliment, but by the time i read this, we were just coming off two thanksgiving dinners, and i wasn't feeling so great about my booty. so saturday morning, we braved the cold, redid all of our hair and makeup, i changed my outfit, and we took 20 more pictures. thankfully, i liked these ones a lot better, and i sent them off to target for printing.
i know it sounds crazy, but sometimes i'm a bit crazy. i know i can't be the only one....right?
