Father's Day idea

The hubs loves poker.

So for Father's Day I started something two years ago that has already become a tradition.

Every year (Okay, it's only been two years, but I think doing something even just two years in a row qualifies as a tradition.  Right?) I take a picture of the kids in a mock poker scene for daddy's day.

It's a little photo we include with his gift.
I turned this picture into a set of playing cards at Shutterfly.

hmm...what does she have? 
This set of pictures was the first year we did this. 
The little guy was only 6 months old. See that blanket bump behind him?
That's my mom trying to hide and hold him upright.

You can go all out with something like this if you wanted to, by setting up the whole scene in the background.
I had major back issues for months after the little guy's birth, so I did what I could at the time.

This would be fun to do a sports or grilling scene, too.

I'm running behind this year, but I plan to get their pictures done this week. 
Fingers crossed.

That is really hilarious. I think if you do it once and like it and decide it's going to be the tradition, then doing it two years in a row certianly qualifies it as "tradition." The blanket bump cracked me up . . . I didn't really notice until you mentioned it. Very cute idea to use the pic on playing cards, too.
