The story behind that picture?
We were getting "respectable" family pictures taken and in the middle of taking pictures in this pose Shawn said, "Hurry up. Spencer's tooting on Mama!"
Lulu looked over at him and said, "Ewwww! Stop tooting on Mama!"
As Anna, our cousin the photographer, was editing the session she sent us this one in an email because she thought it was so funny. Shawn and I agreed it was a pretty funny picture and that was that.
But, that night as we were getting ready for bed I said, "You know what would be a funny Christmas card? If the front said, 'This holiday season may you never have to wonder...' then open it up and it has that picture with the words..."
And, Shawn finished my sentence with, "Who cut the cheese?!"*
We knew it had to be.
I have to admit to just a few reservations as I dropped these bad boys in the mailbox. But, it turns out that the people on our Christmas card list are just as irreverent as we are. We got more comments on this Christmas card than we have ever gotten - and many thanks for the laugh.
If people were offended, at least they didn't say anything about it. I'm sure they've just quietly removed us from their list of friends...
*It should be noted that Spencer is certain that, because I'm laughing so hard in this picture, I must be the offending party.
