So this year we waited until the last minute to realize we needed our family photo for Christmas cards. Brian thought we could get a good one ourselves and just use that instead of having someone take them for us. Well as you can tell the trees were bare by the time we took the photo so not so pretty. Also Brian had worked the night before so by the time he woke up it was late and the sun was starting to go down so we did not have much time left with light. Needless to say I did not send out a Christmas card this year because I did not like any of the family ones. Some of the kids turned out cute but that is about it. Next year I will start early and get a good one!
