I usually have my “look how cute my kids are” Christmas card printed by Snapfish. I am not sure why I chose the “pick up at Walmart” option. In my beady little brain I wasn’t thinking that Walmart would actually be doing the printing. I picked them up and sort of glanced at them, when I got home I saw how truly terrible they were.
It may have been that my husband took the photo in question with his cell phone, which is usually pretty grainy, though it looked good on the computer. It may have been that my son was wearing a yellow shirt next to a green tree. Whatever the reason, both kids look jaundiced and a little distorted. Do I sent out a big-headed, yellow-tinged photo card? I am already a cusp slacker, my mother never sent out a Christmas card in her life and it has been my proud distinction that I almost always send them. Boundaries are important.
I figure the longer I wait to send them, there will be a greater volume of mail and other, prettier cards to mask them. If I can help just one person avoid this sad scenario, it will be worth the effort. Please let Snapfish print your cards, friends don’t let friends archive their precious memories at Walmart.
