I'm not sure why, but looking at the Christmas-card-photo-rejects is my favorite thing to do.
It might be because every year I decide last minute, LAST MINUTE that "today's the day!" for pictures.
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 (37 degrees outside)
1:15 - "Hey Margaret, what are you doing around 3:30 today? Wanna snap a picture for me?"
1:17 - "Hey Babe, what time are you getting home today? ummm, well, think you could reschedule and be home at 2:45?"
...shower....iron...run around like crazy...
2:10 - (Zach home early from school) "Kids, Kids!! No time for playing, it's PICTURE DAY!"
...brush teeth, dress kids, comb hair...
3:00 - in the car...where should we go to take a picture?
...really bad lighting...
It's a wrap.
Time to blow off some steam.
Until next year my loves.
