thanks!

truth be told, I took 211 photos in 25 minutes. I was bound to get a good one in that time. and that's not even my card picture. you won't see that until you get your holiday card from me. (not that I've made it yet, I'm still narrowing down the pictures). but I got some really cool ones.

we drove to a church about 15 minutes away for the pictures. DH isn't totally supportive of my photography and he wasn't thrilled about the process. getting the kids ready SUCKED! everyone cried about their clothes, except for Jack. but it worked out in the end. Natalie fell and skinned her knees (you could see the blood through her tights, poor kid!) as we walked from the car to the church. luckily, her tears only lasted a few minutes and we moved on.

I got the ornaments at Target for $4 each. Wink

I'll post the holiday card picture AFTER all of my cards have gone out. don't want to ruin the element of surprise. ROFL

Love them, especially the family shot. Turned out great. The ornaments were such a great addition with the kids.

I'll post them about a week after I mail them. I'm funny that way. Wink I just finished making the card about an hour ago, and LOVE how it turned out!

We have ornaments like that hanging on our house and we got them at Home Depot. Never thought to use them as picture props. Cool idea!!

Gwen, I agree, this pic is fabulous, and the family one. EVERYTHING about it is cool...the way they are dressed in brown, the red door, the stone building, the wreaths in the background...it's so good. You really did a fabulous job! I love it.

Now tell me why DH isn't supportive of this. I mean I get that it's a PITA to do pics, but at least you are doing the PITA job as well as paying an outrageous price like the rest of us have to do. Smile

Both of those turned out soooo great! I hope I have great success with a family pic this year, so far I have gotten good ones every year since dd was born.
