Christmas Picture RETAKE!!


Time has completely flown by!!! I cannot believe it is almost Christmas! It is crunch time for Christmas cards and I gave Bryan fair warning that last night was our photo shoot for our Christmas card! Thank goodness for a timer on my camera and Bryan's tripod thing he uses when he goes shooting. I had a ton of errands to run after work so we were taking our picture at 9:30 last night. I couldn't believe I was showering, straightening my hair and putting on makeup at 9:00!! Crazy!!!
We did have a few mishaps and we've concluded NOT to use these on our cards!! In Bryan's defense, he has had a cold all week long and Tuesdays are his long days!He is notorious for closing his eyes. I bet we had 10-12 takes because of his eyes or my necklace or my hair!! :)
Who knows what happened on these!!?? We took these prior to changing clothes and putting on makeup. We were trying to find the center and just the right spot.

You should be glad these are blurry. I am very very scary without makeup!!

You are not scary without make-up!!!
Taking a Christmas card picture is always a little stressful! :-) It's crazy how many we usually take just to get one we can both agree on. ha!

I got the tea towels at Kirklands at the Landing!

They are totally for show though. I was looking on the label how to clean them and it said "spot clean only." hummmm I immediately moved the one away from my stove. :)

Y'all have a great time!

I'm already ready to go back.

Oh how funny ~~ I love to take CHRISTmas card pics, but we are crazy pic takers. I think that it is less stressful that way.

How many fuzzy pics do we have in our digital library? hahaha And you could not look scary ~~ you are so cute!!

Have a GREAT, relaxing, no showering and putting on make-up at 9:00 pm kind of evening =)

These look great...very well centered and you both look so cute together in front of your tree. I'm sure the real thing will be perfect for your Christmas cards.

Boy, to look as cute as you do without make-up! I always tell my hubby, "I've got to paint the old barn (my face) and that takes time"!

You are a beautiful couple!
Bet the finished picture is great!

By the way, how did that last shot have two images of you?

The Christmas card thing so stressful? I start getting all uptight about it around Thanksgiving.

I'm sure your cards will be great.

I'm so behind on the Christmas card thing.
