Whose List Are You On?

When my eldest daughter was born, my husband and I decided to use a picture of her for our Christmas card. And for three years, the cards were a hit. 



First, we did a cute Santa pic....


Then, I was inspired by that beloved holiday classic, Rudolph....


And last, but not least, (and my personal fave)....the Grinch....


After that year, and to the disappointment of our family and friends, we decided to take a break and we weren't inspired for a few years. But this year I had an idea that I knew my youngest daughter could pull off. 

Now, you have to understand, usually when we want to take a picture of Kimee, it takes a looooooooooooong time to get that perfect shot. She squirms, makes the silliest faces and has this fascination with coming right up to the lens (typical toddler!). Needless to say, my husband always gets the shot, after about 50 clicks!! But this time, THIS time, Kimee surprised us all! We got this shot after only about FIVE tries!!! And she nailed it.....wouldn't you agree??


Here is my layout..........



The caption on the inside of the card is:
We hope you're on the "nice" list!

I already have a plan for next year's card....I'm thinking that the girls will do something together.....but you'll just have to wait another year to see my vision come to life ;)

Thanks for looking!!

That's really, really cute!
Far more creative than the classic (though cute) "toddler with Santa's hat" :-)
You did a wonderful job and I'm sure family and friends will LOVE it!
