Hello there, fellow To Make Love-ians. I'm Deanna!
I love to write. And it's always really flattering when someone asks me to write a guest post for them. Sometimes they are nice and give you a prompt. Sometimes they do not. (Ahem....Caitlin.) But I thought that since it's close to the holidays, and I keep seeing everyone's Holiday Card photoshoot posts show up in my reader, I would share our Christmas card outtakes from when my oldest son was 5 months old.
Let me set the scene for you: Like I said, my husband and I never wanted children. We were filling out papers to join the Peace Corps when I found out I was pregnant. Imagine our surprise. I never had a motherly bone in my body. I was terrified. How was I supposed to take care of something so small? I was clueless. So of course, come Christmastime, the husband and I decided that we would take a sweet family portrait. You know, to show everyone that we did know what we were doing. We could handle it. We weren't in over our heads. And this was the end result:
Here we have the dog terrorizing the cat, and our son, who looks like a proud citizen of Whoville.
Oh, how precious. In an attempt to get everyone's attention, it looks like my husband is giving 'the shocker.' Hey, look! We finally get everyone to look at the camera! Too bad the baby is ANGRY.
And if case you were wondering what ended up on our Christmas cards, this next one was it. The true essence of our little family that year: Merry Christmas!
