Hey, we can play along too!



Meghan at A Mom Two Boys is having a special day today -- a bloggy holiday card exchange.

Check it out -- the idea is that we all post our holiday card on our blog. That way, says Meghan, we can all "send" our cards to all our bloggy friend, all the while saving "on postage, (not having to) stalking everyone for their addresses AND we’d be totally GREEN by NOT using extra paper to print more cards." She even has a Mr. Linky just for that purpose.

I mean, seriously, I'd love to send each and every bloggy friend my family's holiday card. My biggest difficulty with that, however, is not the postage or the address thing.

It's that ... um ... we don't send out cards.

I guess we COULD send out cards. We just don't.

So an opportunity to play with Picnik and make something? Well, that always speaks loudly to me.

And so, with no further ado, I present to you our official (first and only) holiday card:

Damn, they're cute!

You're welcome.

Very cute photo! I love how you have all the chairs turned sideways.

WOW! I'm just impressed that you have a picture with all the kids LOOKING AT THE CAMERA! I have 3 brothers and the last picture of the four of us? My wedding - 5 years ago. And even then most of us were drunk and not completely looking at the camera. Heh...

Kudos...and Merry Christmas to you!

Damn! They ARE cute. What what a wonderful idea.
Will join in the fun...as soon as I can. It may go up on St. Patrick's Day, but it WILL go up.

wow, you got them all to smile at the same time, amazing! I can hardly get my two to be in the same room at the same time :-)

Happy holidays!

Yay! They ARE adorable! And your "card" is perfect! :0)

Thank you SO much for participating!

Great photo! Merry Christmas. I usually do the family photo and card and letter thing, but this year I'm not. Didn't get around to it, don't want to spend the money. But I'm sure I can come up with something for blogging buddies closer to Christmas.

They ARE cute! Love it!

I've been trying for weeks to get a picture of my kids together, but those dang kids refuse to sit still.

You managed to get smiles on all of them. What threat did you use? Hannukah starts this weekend??

Debbie said...

That is too normal. I don't like it at all. I want one that really shows your family's personality. Don't give me this lined up Brady Bunch stuff all cute and sweet. Who are those posers?

(But it is a great photo.)

Cathy said...

They are cute!
Happy Holidays!

Suzanne said...

You grow them cute, Janet!

I love the idea!

Jennifer said...

That's an excellent pic--they all look great!

Momo Fali said...

That is one fine looking family!

Pamela said...

I think thats the first time I've seen them all in the same orbit.

karisma said...

And what a loverly one and only card that is! Yes you are all very cute! I am very impressed that everyone is smiling and looking the same way, unlike my tribe who pull faces and stick out their tongues! Well done! And Happy holidays right back at ya!

Older kids are so much more cooperative with the camera. I have to say I am looking forward to that! ; ) Great card and Happy Holidays Janet!

Karen said...

You seriously need to send cards. That card would be an awesome one. What kind of a Scrooge are you?

Jaina said...

What a lovely card! I hope you had a Merry Christmas :)
