And now? A very "special" Christmas post

Today I am stuffed full of Kansas City barbecue goodness and it feels like the kick off to the holiday season for me, because I'm THAT full. In arranging to feed my office, I may have also picked up a huge pumpkin pie and chocolate cake to get a jump start on the over-eating that is up ahead us. Combine that with the pumpkin bread I made last night and I'm almost ready to jump into the spirit of the season head first.

Almost.

All of this leads me to our annual holiday card. I started thinking of ideas for our card this year and realized we didn't do a picture card last year. In looking through the pictures I took for the card last year I see why. I really had little to work with.

First? Fail.



Then? Double fail.



Oooh, look. Half-way there.



And, um, no.



Thinking back to the year before that, I did pictures of the kids as gifts and it took about 50 shots to get one workable shot.

Jason is going to dig out the Christmas stuff this weekend so we can have our photo shoot.

Wish me luck. Because, as you can see, I need it. Bad.

In the meantime, I'm in love with this video. Researching hair colors brought me to it.

Don't ask. Just enjoy.

As hard as it was to get good pics. for the Xmas card in years past, I expect it to be twice as hard now that my older child is twelve. And pissed off at the world.

Good luck to you. I may not even try.

If I lived closer, I would totally do your Christmas picture for you. I'd even insist on you and the husband being in it and we'd probably go somewhere really urban and cool. And then we'd go get drunk. After we dropped the kids off with the babysitter, of course. Because we are RESPONSIBLE drinkers.

God do we really have to start Christmas already?
Apart from that, nice blogging.
