The worst part is, we haven't even sent our Christmas cards...scratch that...we haven't even DONE our Christmas cards yet.
Having four little ones, I wish we had the excuse of saying, "Ohhh, we've just been so busy," or "You know how it is..." but the truth is, EVERYONE is busy. I don't care if you have four kids, eight kids, no kids...you're BUSY! Life is life and it's usually flying by at about a thousand miles per hour.
No, our cards are sitting in a neat stack, ready to be sent - except for one thing. Genius me bought cards that have a place for a photo on the front. The problem is, it's literally next to impossible to get one picture where all four of the kids are good to go. It's the age old dilemma and every year I SWEAR that we won't get photo cards again. Guess what we got again...a nice big stack of blank front cards waiting for a picture. Even better, the insides are already printed with the year 2012 - so they HAVE to be used this year. Again...I'm a genius.
So...either one of four things can happen. 1. We can send very strange blank Christmas cards with no picture. 2. We can scratch the year 2012 out and use them for next year. 3. We can keep trying to get a "perfect picture" to use for this year - and send them out sometime by June...or...4. We can just use one of the hundreds of pictures that we've already tried. Oh - and we've tried. We've been to the beach, to the park, to see Santa, to Williamsburg...on and on we've tried to get that "Christmas card" shot. Adam and I have even gotten in the picture thinking it would help...but - well, you can see for yourself how well that worked.
I hope that our family and friends won't be too upset with their "Merry Christmas, New Year's, Easter cards" this year. We really are trying...I swear.
