The Shots That DIDN’T Make the Christmas Card That Year…

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

It’s that time of year again…

I’ve been talking with friends who are trying to get that perfect holiday-card family photo. And that reminded me of the time we decided to take our own family photo for the Christmas card, complete with an (oh-so-sophisticated) white-sheet backdrop. Let’s just say that between the sheet continually falling down, the dog wandering off and the flash on the camera working sporadically, it was a loong afternoon — but funny, now that I look back on it.

Exhibit A (Dad still fiddling with the camera)

Exhibit B (Losing it while Mom fixes the sheet for the 14th time)

Exhibit C (“Do I STILL have to hold Charlie, Mom?”)

And finally - The Winning Shot!

Yep, the sheet was still wrinkled, but what the heck. I still smile when I see that picture.
