This year, we decided to go a little "out there" with our Christmas card photos. They were inspired by Pinterest.
I'm sure you've all seen this photo (or versions of it) floating around Pinterest:
And, we realized that there wasn't much we could do with that what with us having already been married for 13+ years by the time I joined Pinterest.
And then there's this little bit of hilarity. What's not to like about a Venn diagram comparing Santa to a superhero? (For what it's worth, Elvis is ALSO like a superhero . . . sparkly costumes, cape, karate moves . . . but I digress.)
And then remember, dressing up like superheroes (read: any character AT ALL) is not a foreign concept to the Walkushes.
Ryan Barrett Walkush and Baby Aidyn in 2005 (pre-Pinterest, might I add):
Entire Walkush family in 2009 (also pre-Pinterest):
And, when you mix all of this information together in my somewhat creative mind, you get the Walkush family 2012 Christmas photo:
Which then turned into this Christmas card, complete with "superhero" themed Christmas greetings:
Some interesting factoids for you:
- RBW is sporting the very same Superman T-shirt and glasses from 2005 (because I meticulously catalog and store all of our Halloween costumes for just such occasions).
- The cost for these "costumes" rang in at a whopping $2.00 for two sets of Dollar Store reading glasses that I popped the lenses out of for the boys.
- We all owned white dress shirts, ties, and jeans. Aidyn somehow owned a small and a medium Superman T-shirt (and he was nice enough to let Mama borrow the larger one).
- If you are looking for Superman T-shirts, Old Navy is your friend. I have also seen them at Target.
Methinks Superman would approve of our Pinteresting choice of cards this year:
