Every year, my husband and I take some kind of Christmas picture for our cards.Â Either we do it ourselves or use one from some where we had gone during the year.
Our day trip this year isn’t until next week and I’m afraid if I wait till then to take the picture and then send it in with the cards, it will be too late.Â So, this year we tried the concept of sitting in front of the tree with the dog and trying to get a good picture using the auto picture take option on my camera.
After many takes, Â only 1 picture came out that wasn’t fuzzy.Â Of course, the dog wasn’t looking at the camera, the top of my head was cut off, you could see my bra, my hubby had that puzzled lookÂ on his faceÂ and just bad all around.Â And who can see what the picture really looks like in the little bitty tiny screen after you take the picture?Â So, thats why I take a bunch and hope at least one comes out good.
So now, we are going to try again and this time we will do like we did before and sit on the floor instead of kind of squating like we did this time.
The pictures I used in our 2006 Christmas card was done with the auto picture taker and I think I took about 20 pictures.Â This was the 1st year with Ernest the dog and we wanted to make sure he was in the photo.Â AFter all, he is part of our family.
After quite a few shots, we finally got one whereÂ the dogÂ looked at the camera.Â That one was actually pretty nice and worked out great.
I decided to scrap some of the goofy pictures we got that night with April Staker’s new kit called Frozen.Â You can find it here and the colors are so bright and reminds me of snow and how it glitters.Â I loved the Christmas lights in the kit.
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
