But It Can't Sing and Dance

Just so no one feels left out, I scanned one of our Christmas postcards before I sent them all out. Behold, the 2011 version, in which we used 2010 pictures:

Now let's take a moment to dissect it:
I could NOT make my photos fit any of the pre-designed cards, and this company had some REALLY cute ones, but I didn't like that I wasn't able to design my own. Then I decided I wanted postcards, and was further annoyed that this was the only postcard (out of three options) that included four photos. Because I think it's a little on the ugly side. And I usually try to ere on the not-so-ugly side, if I can help it.

I couldn't.

I was annoyed that the company I used didn't let me change the "Happy Holidays" sign. I know it probably doesn't matter to anyone else, but I prefer the much less ambiguous, "Merry Christmas."

Also, I think the red banner on which the words are printed is less-than-lovely.

And the "Love, The Shumans" was MUCH bigger in my online preview. And the message on the back was centered...

Oh well. Altogether, I think I paid .97 for them, so I am happy about that.

I would say that I will not order through this company again, but if I get another free (basically) order from them next year, I will.

Because money talks.

If there's one thing Neil Diamond has taught me, it's that.

Also, Merry Christmas. From me, not Neil.

It's a way cute card and the only things I noticed on it were the cute pictures of your cute family and your hilarious note on the back. Quit dissecting. All's well. Besides, ANY card is better than NO card. That's what Neil Diamond taught me.

I love the postcard idea. Might have to do the same next year. Merry Christmas!

I am just happy to have one hanging in my own "doorway of fame". Couldn't find a cuter family up there either!
Love Neil and his money advice.

I think it is perfect just the way it is! I love the card.
