Best Wishes for an IMPERFECT Christmas!

Ohhhh - how part of me wishes
you could've been there (& the other part is so glad you weren't!) - to see ALL the blooper shots - spanned over two photo shoots in as many days due to uncooperative dogs, people making weird faces or looking away, incorrect camera setting, .... Finally we threw perfection expectations to the wind & decided to throw snowballs instead(!) ... & low & behold THAT very last pic is the one that best reflects our family for real (SOooo NOT perfect!) & qualified as a Kodak moment worth capturing & worthy of the highly regarded spot on the front of our Christmas cards this year :)

Hmmm.... there's a lesson hidden in there relating to Christmas in general. If you're able to find it, you will have found our gift to you!

Having trouble? Well - we really want you to find - here's a hint:

Best Wishes for an IMPERFECT Christmas!
(chances are it will be more focused/less stressful that way :)

... 14because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever
those who are being made holy.

Hebrews 10:14 (NIV)

That is a TERRIFIC shot! Looks like everyone had fun. (I'll bet some of the other photos will provide a few laughs in years to come.)

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's the kind of Christmas card I like to get in that mail! When everyone looks perfect it's so boring! Your friends and family will LOVE it and I think receiving it in their mailboxes will INSPIRE them to throw perfection to the bitter wind, too! It's certainly inspired ME!

I'm with Lupines here! What a great picture! Thanks for the reminder that perfection is not everything.

What a great picture! Looks like you had a lot of fun! Don't know why but it does seem like trying to get the family together for a christmas card is one of the hardest things to do!
