Not Gonna Cut It

I've taken over 15,000 photos so far this year. One would think I would have at least a few Christmas card worthy shots. One would be wrong.

Exibit A:

I love this picture. Truly. It's my favorite picture of the whole year. And by far the best one of us as a family in, well, forever. (Sad, I know. But true.) I hesitate to send it out as a Christmas card. For one thing, it may not be totally appropriate to be aiming a gun directly at our friends and loved ones, even if it is bright orange and plastic. For another thing, I feel the need to accompany a picture of four pirates with a witty caption. And I've got no witty caption.

Exibit B:

Another family photo (one of two this year). I do love it. But really, would you send this out as your Christmas card? Yeah, I didn't think so. As cute as Jake looks with mad scientist hair, and as stunning as I am as Word Girl, hmmm. Dan does make a good evil villain, and Cam fits right in as the superhero monkey. But, no. Just not gonna happen.

So you see my dilemma. Out of 15,000 photos, I have exactly ZERO to use for the Christmas card. Oops.

these pics need no witty lines, they speak entirely for themselves... happiness. xoxo

I like the pirate picture. How about a simple "Merry Christmas, Matey"? Our picture is not very Christtmasy either, but I love it. And I think there are 2 guns pointed in it...

I would love a card with both of those pictures!
Something about the gun and Jake's hair on the other one that will make my living room look more dazzling :-)

Plus, it says I had a great year of FUN, and that makes for the best Christmas card.
