A Late Enough Christmas Card

A Christmas Card For The End Of The World

If I send this as our annual Christmas card, do you think people will assume we’ve already become zombies?

A Late Enough Christmas Card
12/21/12 is very close, Twinkies are gone, and global warming has won so if you don’t like all the end of the world talk, you might need a better denial scheme than knowing us…. Ooh, I think I just found our Christmas card tagline.

My son later pulled a Christmas card Zoolander during our 15 attempts at a family picture for the tiny squares to prove YES WE ARE A FAMILY OF FOUR.

Blue Steel and one-eyed Dada. At least N didn’t have any boogers.

With all these amazing choices hidden between the blurry photos of my children giggling, Let’s run away from mama and her camera, this year’s Christmas card may be our greatest one yet.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Love both the pictures! They remind me of ours in the kids’ younger days. This year we got all fancy and had a friend take some pics in another friend’s backyard (it’s the ocean. And mountains. And a beach. Beautiful). My family found a way to have at least one person looking a bit off-kilter in each one. I look forward to my LateEnough card and can happily say that I would be very sad with out LateEnough in my RSS feed. 🙂

  2. One year we had a picture of my son bitch slapping the dog across the face. We didn’t use that for the card although it was totally hilarious.
