It’s that time of year again.
Time to roll out the holly, fill your cup up with egg nog, bake something and send out the Christmas Cards!
Now, we’ve talked about our card already here, about how, regardless of our small little family, I chose a photo of Husband and I sitting on a cooler at a music festival after a few drinks and a few hours in the sun and dust.
I think it’s festive in its own way, you know, minus the roaring fire, twinkling tree and coordinating Christmas sweaters.
It will do just fine I think. It has to.
Because it was our only choice.
I’ve mentioned this before, a few years back, that each time the holidays roll around I’m faced with the dilemma of finding a suitable photo of my Husband and I that doesn’t make our friends and family concerned for 1) Our Relationship and 2) Our Mental Health.
It’s a tough task.
And after spending the last few years traipsing around the countryside photographing beautiful families and beautiful couples and sending them off into the holidays armed with at least one or two catalog worthy shots, I have yet to coordinate my own JCrew photo shoot for me and my man.
We are not photogenic.
We are awkward.
And this is our catalog…
Merry Christmas (and no, our house still isn’t done)
Happy Holidays from my nose and his beard
Warm wishes from Florida. We’re not tourists. And no, this isn’t Husband’s first time to Disney World, no matter what the button on his polo says.
Celebrate! The Dweebs have been released from the ranch!
Happy Festivus… No,no, we haven’t been drinking.
Aww, cute, we should cuddle up in front of the tree…take off your cap and act like you like me…
Nevermind, put it back on…
Uhhh, Happy New Year?
Good tidings from the Scofields…and the creepy guy behind us…
Sweet dance moves…
Sweet dance moves… An attempt before… It all went horribly wrong…(and I’m not just talking about my hair)
Do we love each other? Yes. Are we having fun? Of course.
Does it look like it? No. No it does not.
Aww anyway… Here’s to good cheer.
Happy Happy Christmas Card Season One and All!
Hope the catalog of your beautiful life has more options than ours.
Peace, Love and awkward family photos,
Jessie & Chad
(Oh, and the dogs too)
Yup, the dogs are the best!
That was great! 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
The best of all Christmas wishes to you and yours Jessie. Have a wonderful holiday 🙂
And a Merry Christmas to you all as well!
Reblogged this on El Noticiero de Alvarez Galloso.
You guys are fine! I was at a TEDx talk this summer where a photographer and a psychologist talked about how people hate being photographed but were fine with selfies.
Their theory was that when taking a selfie the subject is in control and that makes them comfortable.
My theory is that people do not feel comfortable w/ their picture being taken even in a selfie. You will note that in most selfies people make weird faces. My theory is that by making a weird face people feel no one will see their “flaws” just the weird face and gang symbols.
But I’m no Ph.D.
Love reading your stories. Hope your Dad is doing well.
Merry Christmas – Andy
