This is NOT our Christmas card this year. But it almost was. I had this idea that I wanted to make happen while we were in San Diego, and THEN when we were able to meet up with a friend who ALSO KNOWS HOW TO WORK HER CAMERA (!!!) I knew it could work. So my old facebook/new IRL friend Melissa snapped these for me, but then Chris vetoed the idea because he "looked fat". His words, not mine. To be fair, his outfit + the wind = a big block of a man, but then Heidi suggested I try picmonkey, and their nip/tuck action. It just sucked his little block body right in. (However, it also sort of sucked in the waves behind him which really bugs me, which is why it is NOT our Christmas card this year). I still really liked the idea of it, so I'm sharing it here. Also, I feel like we should all know about picmonkey (Oh, everybody else already knew about it??, fine).
If I did my googling and html-ing right, you should see Chris' "block" body when you hover your over the picture. If not, well, I tried. Really, I did.
is was going to be the front of our card:
And this, the back (get it? because that's our backs?):
