Fun, Fails, and Photos---oh my!

I believe Charlie Brown said it best---UGG!

Presents to wrap...
Cookies to bake...
Shopping to finish...
Gifts to mail...

You get the idea!

Not to mention the one task weighing on my mind like fifty elephants after an all-you-can-eat peanut buffet---the ever intimidating, Christmas card photo!

With photo fail #2 yesterday, I'm officially hanging up my unrealistic expectations, after all, I'm no Anne Geddes.  The truth is,  even in the homes of our closest relatives, our card, along with tons of others, is destined for the trash alongside last year's re-gifted fruitcake and this year's Walgreens' perfume compliments of Great Aunt Martha.




No matter how you spell it, the sentiment expressed by our favorite little bald-headed friend is still the same---Ugg! Even Gillian Grace knows a thing or two about Uggs, only hers are of the much preferred soft and cozy variety!






But unlike GG, I'm willing to bid farewall to my Uggs, more determined now than ever to simply enjoy what's left of this magical holiday season, with or without the perfect Christmas card photo!

What are your holiday uggs and more importantly, how will you get rid of them?

Happy Fun Phone Friday, y'all! Hope you'll take a second to grab my badge, link up, and share your great phone photo!

Like I said, can't wait to see the final Christmas card product! I'm sharing my final product today! :) Same as you, it's not the "perfect" pic I had in mind, but it's still sweet just the same.

Jennifer said...

Aside from the fact that you may not be Anne Geddes, GG is an awesome little model and whatever card you send, people will be thrilled to see her smiling little face :) I am loving her in your Uggs....too cute. I am surprised she doesn't have her own pair. She would look adorable in them. Good luck in whatever you decide for the card :)

Janine said...

The monogrammed tutu pic - that would be my prized photo for the Christmas cards =-) So jolly adorable! My UGGHH moments are more the fact that I have to spring clean my house to get it ready for our guests that are house-sitting for us while we are away over Christmas. Now to squeeze that in while Christmas shopping and hosting sleepovers for my girls best friends ... shew ... it's fun!!! hee hee

The Regal Pup said...

I am right there with you! I swear sometimes Christmas is way more stressful than it should be. I do love the picture you posted though of her monogrammed bloomers and tutu!

Anyhow, I hope you can get some stuff done this weekend! :)

Lindsay said...

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!

Traci said...

What cute pictures! Especially the first one!!

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

You know...I took a different approach and did a "collage" card this year with some of my fave photos over the last 2 months. (I used Webshots' "Fa...la...la...la" card.) Most of my family and friends seldom visit my blog so I thought it was a way to show off some fun images of the boys. And, I know you have a million cute captures of that little doll!

Jumping Jack said...

Love the tutu pic! I always forget about Fun Phone Photo Friday since I usually try to update my blog before I start reading yalls! I really need to start scheduling posts, but then what would I do at work? HA!

Have a great weekend!

Mama K said...

Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek said...

And Lucy said it second best, Good Grief. I've always loved that saying.

Jessica said...

GG in those bloomers and tutu is absolutely adorable!! Im sure whatever picture of that precious little bean you put on a Christmas card will be loved!

Happy Weekend, S!!

Kim | It's All Reitz said...

She is so cute in those Uggs! I went with a photo that I hadn't envisioned, but still was pretty cute. If you get a good enough background for your card, it all works out. :) Have a great weekend!

Annette said...

Ugh is right. For me, I haven't been able to enjoy any of December yet because I've been too busy working...getting final exams corrected, etc. etc. I'm still without a Christmas card photo, haven't scheduled any Santa visits, and now my little guy has just come down with a terrible cold. Ugh is definitely the word for me right now.

Kristen @ ladybug-blessings.com said...

I think you should send the tutu picture! haha. I think people would get a kick out of that!!

Bonnie said...

Ohhh, I like this idea! I always take so many photos with my phone! Your little girl is so cute! How old is she? My little boy will be 1 on the 21st, but we had his party last weekend. AND, I had a cookie exchange last Thursday. I am SO done baking & cooking this season, ha!

AmyLee said...

i am unwilling to give up my uggs. to cozy ;)
and LOL @ "regifted fruitcake & walgreen's perfume." nice.

to answer your question on my photo blog, the little christmas photo shoot was done at the washington state capitol building.

Heather said...

I am days away from giving up on christmas cards altogether. Too hard to get five kids to stop arguing and look the same direction.

Kitchen Belleicious said...

I am with the others. She is a great model and the tutu is fabulous! I love it! P.S. I have those same boots and G has that same wooden play thingy with the zoo animals from target! Love that store! XO
