Ho, Ho, Ho!

17 more days until Santa comes to town, whew, are you ready? This picture is a Christmas card out-take. It's my year for our card, we take turns, you see. I've been trying for 2 weeks now to get THE perfect picture of Ollie, of our family, of Ollie and Marzi, etc. I'm not gonna lie, I think maybe I need to lower my expectations a bit and accept the fact that it is really difficult to get a 21 month old to cooperate. I couldn't ever get him to smile that cute smile while soaking in the suds, in fact, about 3 seconds after this shot, the hat was getting a bath itself. So, here's a shout out to all the baby's mommas who are working hard right now trying to finish their "perfect" Christmas cards, I feel your pain!

You know I feel the pain and you know too that I LOVE the idea of the bathtub shot and santa hat. After we chatted yesterday I went on and on to Kevin how much I LOVED the idea. You might just see it in one of our future cards. Sorry it didn't go as smoothly as you had planned. Who made cute photos of our children the standard for cards at Christmas when it is already a busy time of year?! We ALL need to make a pack not to do cards. :)

I vote for the one of Ollie and Marzie Pan in the crib sleeping. Two little precious beings of Jesus asleep and no worries or cares. What an affirmation of the love of Christ! Thank you for all the pics you have sent us all year Whit. They all are so precious. We all have an album of pictures of Ollie and a few of the family otherwise. Christmas Blessings!
