It's just one picture. One picture from the entire year.
In the past I've gotten some really sweet ones, others that are undeniably cute.
But there are a lot of in-betweens. Most of the time the Scallywag is looking somewhere else, or talking, or messing with his sister. Sometimes Eldest blinks right when we take the picture. Either way, the picture taking experience for our Christmas cards isn't necessarily fun.
This year I finally asked myself why on Earth I was compounding to the stress of the holidays.
To make things simple this year I decided to take a different route for our pictures. Instead of trying to get the children to sit together and pose, I thought I'd use pictures we already had.
It's been the easiest Christmas card ever. And with both pictures already on my computer, it's made making a Christmas card that much easier.
No complaints, no fuss, everyone is happy. See the bebe above?
Happy, happy, happy!
My Christmastime suddenly feels much merrier and bright!
A lovely, wintry morning to you all...
