Family Friday - More Family Photos and the Hinkle Christmas Card

I wanted to make sure that mom got out all of her Christmas cards before I posted this. But, I couldn't skip it because 1. I need to post the family pictures anyway. 2. I still laugh every time I see it.   I ordered her cards from Vistaprint and saved out the ones that needed to be mailed so that I could mail them for her and then sent the rest to her so she could hand them out at work.  Well, the Trussville Post Office lost them.  Seriously, it's the worst post office ever.  If you live in Trussville, get insurance!  It's probably worth the drive to the next town.. Anyway, the cards finally showed up a couple of weeks later.  Hopefully she's handed them all out by now.

Since our family had a tough year in 2010, my mom thought that something funny and lighthearted was the way to go.

This is what I came up with:



I thought that this design would only look right on a folded card and it proved to be a bit of challenge to find a place that printed folded cards at a reasonable enough price for us to order 150. Vistaprint, hands down had the best price. And I was very happy with the quality of the card.

The photo-- Once again, utilize your tri-pod.  I didn't even have to swap any heads on these.  Make sure you double click on the bottom photo and check out Chloe's "silly pose".
