Do you really want to know what makes things crazy at our house before Christmas? It's not shopping for the presents, finding time to decorate the house and Christmas tree, no it's finding or taking the photo for our Christmas card! Luckily we were in Chicago this year for Thanksgiving and made a trip downtown to Daley Plaza to see the huge Christmas tree. Dana suggested that would be the perfect spot for our Christmas card photo and we were hoping that she was right! You know what it's like, either you get lucky sometime throughout the year and get a great photo or struggle to take one the day before you need to order your cards. The past few years, we've been in the latter category. I'm blaming Dylan, it's hard to get a good photo of someone 2 and under :)
We did get a good photo in front of the big Christmas tree though, we were lucky this year! Now I needed to find the right photo card to go with the photo. Fortunately, Shutterfly has hundreds of options to make sure there is something that will go with every photo. Do I choose this one? I like this one too! This could be it...Maybe this is the hard part, deciding what card to choose! I guess you will just have to wait and see! It is fun to look through the designs and see what one will work best with our photo.
Maybe some thank-you notes too... :)
