Holiday Photo Poll

Damn you Shutterfly.  I know I ordered the pictures late.  But they just arrived TODAY??!  I admit, I was waffling on the photo.  I had some nice fall scenes, but I sent a lovely shot of Child sitting in a pile of leaves last year and .. well I dont want my loved ones to think I've hit a rut.  And there was going to be a holiday party.... nope, nothing good there.  Well next week we're going to take him to see Santa...nope, won't even get close to the guy.  How about this occasion when Santa is going to be "stopping by".... damned they are all blurry.

Finally I just went with something, but I wasn't totally happy with it because you couldn't see his whole face:

So as a backup I picked this one, which is cheeky, but I think really personality-laden.

This caused strife in the household because DH feels the second picture is totally inappropriate for a holiday greeting.  I finally had to do something which I hate: I pulled rank:"You haven't been involved with the holiday cards for 3 years so ... pbbth!"

Lets all agree, the second photo is NOT the one you send to your boss.  Or the 2nd cousin you only see at weddings and funerals.  They get the 1st photo.  But close family members?  I see nothing wrong with it.  How about you Internets?  Lets take a poll, shall we?

Holiday Greetings: Good place for tub pictures or not?

Not my taste but its your kid!
I'm just happy its not a dog with antlers!

It's not like he's throwing nip. (Is that something pre-schoolers can be described as doing? Outside a NAMBLA convention?) It's funny. And a better picture than the first one. Yeah - maybe less than fully appropriate, but not totally weird.

Then again, "totally weird" is relative to local standards, and in this family, that standard is centered pretty far off the normalized median.
