Holiday Photo Anyone?
Posted on 08 November 2016
Yes it's that time of year again when we start thinking of that holiday photo we'll send out. I already got my coupon for 40% off from tinyprints. Every year there are so many cool designs to choose from like making the photo an ornament, having a tri-fold book, letterpress, sparkle..... And the websites make it so easy to create something really professional looking. You just have to have the right photograph. That can sometimes be a problem.
(Our very first holiday photo that took about an hour until they were both smiling and looking at the camera)
(A few years later when it became a little easier....)
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time's forever frozen still
I mean isn't this why we do it? They're our memories, frozen in time. My deadline is usually to take the photo Thanksgiving weekend and order by the first week of December. This way I have enough time to stuff them, update my address list and get the proper stamps. We send a lot of holiday cards to Croatia so I like for them to get there before the end of December.
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone, wait for me to come home
(I still have this one in my bedroom on top of the dresser..)
Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen
Next to your heartbeat where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul

For those of us planning to take that photograph pretty soon and still thinking of what the kids will wear, we have picked out our favorite holiday looks for your lil' rockstars. We have some dressier looks as well as everyday rockstar chic.
Some girl picks......
(What a great holiday photo for siblings......)
For the boys.....
