Since we have been empty nesters, the Superhero and I have had fun taking our own pictures and putting them on Christmas cards. Our children are scattered around the country and we knew we would never be able to get pictures of us all together.
We try to think of a different place to take them each year and this year decided to take them in front of a roaring fire with our mantle decorated.....
We tried standing......Nope! Odd angle, not to mention you can't even see the mantle....
Sitting on the floor......Nope! Uncomfortable and we look strained.
I get the bright idea of getting our little Rubbermaid stools to sit on and those weren't too bad until I realized that we had the old, ragged sticker still on the front of one!
Awkward and we are getting very frustrated!
The Superhero thinks he's funny and takes a picture while I'm getting up to check the camera. I knew I shouldn't have given him the remote! And by the way, the ONLY picture he really smiled in.....because he was amused!
Right before we had to call a marriage counselor in to help, we got one that wasn't too bad, even though the roaring fire was nowhere to be seen!
So to all our friends, near and far,
Merry Christmas and may Jesus be close to your hearts this season!
