This Is What Jolly Looks Like!

For this year's Christmas card, my husband and I decided that funny was the way to go!  So we set out on an epic quest to find the world's greatest (and by that I mean hideous) Christmas sweaters and lucked out and found MATCHING vests!  Here's the picture we used for our card:



I love how our little project came out, it was tons of fun to take the pictures and it's made me really happy to see people laugh when they open our card :)  Here are a few outtakes to enjoy:




But the real question is, what do we do for next year's card???

Awesome cards! They are a hoot! At the high school where I teach we have tacky Christmas sweater day each year. That is always a fun day! Even the students like to participate.

That's awesome!

I don't know what your previous years' cards looked like, but what if Matt wore a t-shirt with some really stupid logo or saying on it, and you wore your hair in rollers, you'd have to wear slippers for sure, and what if you held a rolling pin as a prop? You could stand back to back looking grumpy, or something?

Epic!

Wow, those matching vests are an amazing find! Who knew there could be so much grotesque-yet-festive crapola on one garment, let alone 2? It looks like you had a blast taking these pictures! Happy happy holidays!

This would be scoring the "card of honor" spot on the card display around the door frame. So funny and cute! Loved the extra outtakes too, it must have been hard to choose just one pose!
