I recently received a Christmas card with the following note:
After reading your last blog entry I couldn’t resist sending you a copy of our Christmas card.Â It is a far cry from Martha Stewart, but it should give you a good laugh.
Here it is:
Seriously, how darling is that family?
Here’s the real-life, not-perfect, but super-cute story behind the photo:
We decided that our Christmas card needed some explanation this year: Â
Letâ€™s just say there were hopes and dreams of the â€œperfect family photoâ€ for this card. Â
About 10 minutes into our photo secession, son #1 found a section of perfectly flat, bright green, artificial turf. Â
Naturally, he decided to run onto the grassâ€¦only to find that it was not. Â
Imagine his surprise as the carpet of pond scum parted as he fell face first into the water.
This photo was candidly taken right after pulling him out. Â
It describes life with 3 children perfectly!
Â Merry Christmas!
Thanks so much for sharing, Mandy! Your Christmas card certainly shows us that real and honest – along with it’s accompanying scum – makes for the most memorable (and sincere) holiday greetings!
