I decided that since I didn't send out Christmas cards this year (oops!) I should get a head start on next year! My friend JC is an amateur photographer with a really nice camera! I had him take some photos of us by our tree so I can make my own Christmas card with them for next year. How's that for planning ahead?
Have you seen the episode of Friends with the engagement picture? Chandler, normally an okay-looking guy, just can't put on a normal smile for the camera. Here is an example:
Now, I love Luke very much, and he is a very handsome guy! But he has some seriously weird smiles when he is posing for a picture (unfortunately I don't think he knows it, and I'm not going to tell him! But it's funny). You will notice the weird expressions in the following pictures.
Here are some top pics for next year's card (in no particular order):
Choice #2 (Luke has a funny face again :-P)
Choice #3...Let me add an explanation to this one. Originally, this was a perfect picture of me and Gabby, but Luke, once again, is making one of those weird faces. Here is the original...click on it if you can't see what I mean about the weird face:
And here is the same one, but JC photoshopped Luke's face from another picture!...probably my favorite! I just don't like the fact that you can see our shark picture frame and blu-rays in the background. Maybe I'm too picky!
And here are some bloopers:
Gabby was mid-attack...that's why I was making this face!
And some close-ups of JC's awesome photography:
Anyway, I'm glad I have a whole 11 months before I need to pick a picture and make my cards! One of my New Year's Resolutions is to stop procrastinating, and I guess I'm getting a head start!
