A month or so ago, I told you about our family picture debacle. I had pretty much given up hope of a family picture for our card, and decided I would just go through the gazillion pictures of Scout that I had already taken and find something. But then I came across this picture from our trip to Louisiana over Thanksgiving.
It's one of my favorites. There's something about the big trees and the little girl and the subdued autumnal colors and her bright pink shirt. She looks like she's going on a grand adventure. And this is pretty sacred ground to Rykert in front of his family's house. I wasn't sure that I could make it work as a happy holidays card, but I decided it was the picture I wanted to use. And I think it turned out pretty good.
The back had a close-up of Scout with her age. Next year, I pledge, I will think ahead.
