Instead of a postcard (due to time) we did a holiday doctored photo. Our theme was Home Alone. Once I started working on it, I got into it. Isaak was so excited that he was the star of the card! Isaak played Macaulay Culkin. He loved being the star of the photo. That made me smile. He didn't get left at home, while we were on vacation. He did however get left at school when Mica was supposed to pick him up. Thankfully they do have a place called Kids Club he could go. He does cook us breakfast by himself on some Saturdays, and in my mind he kicks some butt!
The rest of us were robbers. While I realize there are only two robbers in the real movie, our photo has three. It was so easy to have Mica make that face. He does it in many photos when I ask him to smile. This time I wanted the crazy face. Travis was happy to wear his stocking cap that he has on most of the time. I did get the, "Mom why are you wearing jewelry? A robber wouldn't look nice!" Maybe I stole the jewelry.
I tweaked the Home Alone Logo, so the photo place wouldn't give me grief about printing it. The original has a line under it, a line breaking up the roof on the house, is never a cream color, and has a different font.
I added a infogrphic style letter. Basically it includes things we've done, or like. It was nice to not be confined to a tiny postcard space. While it doesn't go to a song, or rhyme it's still fun.
Do you make a holiday card? Are there times where you just don't feel like doing everything you usually do?
