My best friend Dana was struggling to find outfits for her family pictures a few months ago. She had stopped by my house on the way home from a shopping trip to show me the few items she’d found. As an aside she pulled out these superhero shirts she’d picked up on clearance for the three youngest kids — not really family picture worthy, but they were a good deal. Then we had an AHA! When life gives you lemons (or superhero shirts) why not make lemonade, right?! So we tracked down tees for the rest of the family on Amazon.com (She-Ra, Captain America and Wonder Woman), and called it a day.
I must say, for an after thought, their family pictures turned out to be some of the cutest ever:
These pics were begging to be made into a fun comic-book style card, and I was more than happy to oblige:
My favorite is the photo on the front — it totally looks like her little boy may very well be thinking “Dad is SO Awesome!” Plus the comic bubbles on the back were a fun way to share tidbits about their life without writing a long letter. Super fun — right?!
