I’ve always been a stickler for holiday cards. It’s a way of reaching out to friends and family at least once a year – catching up and extending good wishes.
They’ve become more painful now that I have an extremely self-conscious female teenager who vetoes pretty much every photo I like, combined with the frustrations of trying to photograph her with her very active three-year old brother.
We’ve now attempted four separate photo shoots.
I missed the 20% off sale at tinyprints.
And I missed the $5 off coupon at Costco.
But Christian is making out like a bandit (Lego prizes for cooperating…)
I’m resigned to joining the hordes in the Costco photo line in three weeks time. (Bella is now gone for two more weeks.)
I can always fall back to the French tradition of sending New Year’s cards some time in early 2012.
