The quest to get a good Christmas Card Photo

Since this Christmas is all about saving money, I have taken it upon myself to try and he a good Christmas card photo. I have a great idea in mind for the finished product, but getting there is proving to be a real problem! Our Christmas at last year was a real hit, but we did have a professional photographer take the picture and then photoshop us into a snow globe!

The first attempt with the girls resulted in Hadley being happy and Tylyn being… Let’s just say difficult. Here are some of the “good” shots:

The next day at the mall, we had a few impromptu opportunities to take some pictures while waiting in line for Santa.

And yet again, no bueno. If you are wondering ‘where is the Santa photo’ let me just stop you right there. I was not about to spend $22! on a lousy photo with a creepy mall Santa. I can only imagine what the one shot mug would have produced. Instead we opted for the free visit and candy cane. Tylyn was so adamant about sitting on Santa’s lap but once she got there the cat clearly had her tongue!

This morning was take 2 of the home photo shoot, and surprisingly with the opposite results. Tylyn was being darling and Hadley had enough. Some of the better photos:

I think it’s time to face reality. These are the best I’m gonna get! All I have to do now is photoshop the heck out of them πŸ˜‰

But seriously, I have CUTE kids!!
