Desperately seeking creativity.

Ok.. I know there has to be someone out there who can tell me how the @%@)*@ you make pictures into a postcard and make them look so deliciously cute. I asked Mel last night to help, but she is worn out and was unable to do it. I tried to look it up myself, but I am not too talented, and I can't figure out what program you are supposed to use (no, I don't have photoshop. Yes, I do need it to be super easy cause I am super slow). I took pictures of the kids with reindeer antlers... While I want to do a group shot and at some point will get one, I really want to make a signature/card I can get printed that says: Celebrating the holidays with all the ones deer to us. Yea yea i know I am corny. I have six kids... I am insane.. we have been through this.. numerous blogs ago.. you either have kids or sanity. NEVER both.. ok I take that back.. you can have both until the teenage years. So dear Gentle readers.. I am throwing this out there, can ANYONE help me? Please? Pretty please with sugar on top? Before I decide to try that turkey recipe with the Whiskey today I know everyone has seen this before but its so worth repeating:

How to Cook a turkey:
1) Go buy a turkey.

2) Take a drink of whiskey (scotch) or Jack Daniels.

3) Put turkey in the oven.

4) Take another 2 drinks of whiskey.

5) Set the degree at 375 ovens

6) Take 3 more whiskeys of drink.

7) Turn oven the on.

8) Take 4 whisks of drinky.

9) Turk the bastey.

10) Whiskey another bottle of get.

11) Stick a turkey in the thermometer

12) Glass yourself a pour of whiskey.

13) Bake the whiskey for 4 hours.

14) Take the oven out of the turkey.

15) Take the oven out of the turkey.

16) Floor the turkey up off of the pick.

17) Turk the carvey.

18) Get yourself another scottle of botch.

19) Tet the sable and pour yourself a glass of turkey.

20) Bless the saying, pass and eat out

Please save my children from this meal.. ok.. save them from eating Pizza.. wait.. never mind they would like that.. save them from eating ramen? (sounds good) Help me create something.. or the turkey/me gets it.

In the meantime here are the pictures.. ya know now that I see the picture of Lily (the dog) with her antlers.. I think I can forgive her for chewing up the pair of underwear..;o)~ LOL..the reindeers are Stephanie, Danny, AJ, Mary, David, Emily, Lily, Hercules, and Obama:

Emily does look like mary.. lol.. they are labeled in order Stephanies the oldset, then Danny, then AJ, then Mary, then David, then Emily ;o)~

Eileen said...

I knew it! My gut said it was Mary! That's hilarious about the antlers, I swear to you I doubled check the pics back and forth, back and forth darn near peeing my pants because I thought the cat was a girl. It's the small things for me!

Mel said...

If you think that the baby looks like Mary, you should see pics of her Daddy! Everyone at work calls Emily, "Lil Chuck"

There are endless nicknames for this angel though. Emmy, M&M, Stinky (yeah she's 11 months old and exploring all manner of grown up food. sometimes it's an adventure, even being in the room. I can't imagine what it's like having to don the HAZMAT gloves and go in to change one of those toxic things." But she smiles so forget immediately that you have no nose hairs. who needs them anyway??)

I had a similar she's so tiny moment with my youngest the other day. She'll be 19 next weekend, but she's 5 foot ...nothing. SHe works with a gal who is 6 foot. She looks like a midget next to the other gal!! SHe thinks it's funny, but I have noticed she has an affinity for boots with 4 inch heels. Wait so do I. Maybe it's just genetic (like the flirting?!) ;)
