Our attempt at Christmas Card Photos

Before you go further, go to www.elfyourself.com and do it...here is ours...
I am still laughing!
Ok, So we thought instead of fighting with the kids to go some where and have pictures taken, we decided we would put Santa hats on them and just take the pictures at home...What the heck were we thinking?
Sophia looking to see what Katelyn and Frankie are doing?
Katelyn and Frankie think they are funny
Ok, I am losing my patience now..
Sophia taking off..
We did end up getting a few cute ones...This is one of my favorites, but not the one we used...
Yes, Katelyn and Frankie have CAVS shirts on, but in the picture we used, you can't see that it says CAVS on it..LOL
So, I get up all excited to go pick them up from Walgreens and I get a message on my cell phone that says, Hi Miss Lisa, our photo machine is down and we aren't sure how long it will take to be fixed, we will call you when it's up and running and your photos are done....URGHH!

lol, the best laid plans, huh? :) My 2 were actually really cooperative and I had a hard time choosing which pic to use! I just printed them today and am starting on cards tonight. I'm sure the one you're using is precious!!

Greta Jo said...

I too like the last photo. I can not wait to see which photo you use. I sure it will be great!

Oh, the dreaded Christmas card photo picture. I am not looking forward to it!

I love the last one!

Loved the elves!!

Can't believe you already have the pictures done. UGH

Christina said...

I like the last one too. You know what happened with ours..lol...didn't get them done.

Katie said...

LOVE the last pic -- I want a copy !!!

Kathy said...

Too funny! At least they look like they had a good time. I cannot imagine getting 3 kids to be still and smiling for a picture. One is hard enough!! The last picture is precious.

Christine said...

Too cute. I now want to make one for my family. I'm not sure they have a template for 12 though.

Happy Thanksgiving!

M & J said...

How cute!! Love it!!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!

N & D said...

I love them all!!

Becca said...

Those look like they were taken by me! I've not tackled my two kids for a Christmas card yet - I'm gathering my strength...

Kristen and the Gang said...

I love it!!! ANd I can't wait to see the "real" card!

MiaJ said...

Too cute but it does look like a lot of work! =) Why didn't you put your pic on the elf?=)

Our Family of 5 said...

LOL....ahaha Mia, they only would let me put 4 on the elf thingie..LOL

Alleen said...

hahahahahha!!! that so looks like what would happen to me. I'm running out of ideas for pics for our cards. I can't get Gabriella to sit still to save my life. And the Santa experience didn't go so hot this year, so I didn't buy the CD.

Christine said...

SO which one did you use? :)

Kelly said...

LOL LOL L-O-L!!!!!!!

We are going to try to do ours this way, too. Uggggggh.

Ruthanne said...

Awwww.....I LOVE that last one. If that's not the one you're using, I can't wait to see which one you chose!!

Donna said...

Cute pix! I can't get one child to cooperate, so I can imagine that 3 would be a challenge.

Carrie said...

I absolutely adore the last photo.

The others are funny and will go to in history to say--this wasn't as easy as it looks!
