Fun Christmas Card

A couple of people asked me if my photo was taken in a studio and I can proudly say that it was not. I give the credit to Husband’s father and my mother. We took our first trip out of state (to New Jersey) when Sebastian was only 3 weeks old. It happened to be a freakishly snowy weekend and right after this warm spell, a snowstorm hit the East Coast, with record breaking snowfall. I wanted to go outside for a photo. My mother reminded me that my sentiment was a little on the insane side when I was so protective in every other way of my son. So, she looked over in the dining room of my in-law’s home and there was this perfect window seat. Husband’s dad grabbed the camera and we took several photos. With the snow falling, it made for a great moment.

I went down in the basement to search for a funky hat for Husband, put on my red hat and scarf and got Sebastian dressed in his cute little owl hat. And voilà, a photo was made. I added it onto an ornament card, tied a red ribbon and there we have our Christmas card!

My friend, Nancy, hung it on her Christmas tree and sent a photo, so I have to post it here!

Next year…ugly Christmas sweaters for our card…!!

I'm so happy you're back to the blog!! I do LOVE your card. The window seat and funny hats were perfect. And I feel Sebastian Pio has the first of many, "If I just go along with this crazy stuff my parents want to do - it will be over faster" faces. Yay for fun Christmas cards. I don't care how much of a hippie I ever become. I love real cards at the holidays!
