Family Photo Hell...

I have taken tons of family photos this  year.  And for that, I am truly grateful. 

My own family photos, however...whole different story.


I was going to use this one...

 
 
 
But Finn's smile wasnt really right and the sparkles went out on the top of their heads. 
 
 
SO then I thought maybe this one...
 
 



But all I could think of was Freddy singing.....

"I see a little silhouette-o of a man
 scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango....

and the lights were messed up again.  (Hailey could fix that in Photoshop, but I couldn't get past the four heads in the Bohemian Rhaposdy video..) Oh yeah, and Stella's hair was still wet. Always rushing that poor kid.  *heavy sigh*

Was going to do a silhouette around the tree, all four holding hands.  And Stella lost it.  Wouldn't be still.  Finn got irritated at Maddy.  And it all fell apart.  So I said, "FORGET IT.  Just forget it."

Went to my room to pout and 3 out of 4 were really worried about me.  Because I NEVER want to stop until I get it right.  (yeah.  it was maddy that didn't care...)


Bottom line...I have no idea if we will do a damn card or not.  I'd like to still do the whole family.  But we shall see.  Time is running out.


My favorite photo was this one.  I made Finn let me do light tests with his sweet face...



(Your hair is fine Finn.  Don't listen to Maddy.  :)

oh my gosh - that is the funniest and saddest story ever! they have NO idea how crazy Christmas cards can make a momma. Ok, well - they probably do, like mine, and don't care! Mine turned out great by the way...found a way to incorporate all the pictures that i wanted :-)
