The Annual Christmas Card Dilemma

Ever since the first Christmas with Drama Girl, I have been sending cards out with pictures of the kids.  I got lucky some years with great shots, other years I was lucky if I could get them all in the same frame.

So this year, when Drama Girl came home for a few days, I jumped at the chance to take a picture of all three of them together.  It got put off until the last day of her visit. She just had to go out to see one more friend...and Jungle Boy had to go to work...and Wasabi Girl was out at rehearsal.  Finally,  late at night they were all home and I got them together and took about 40 pictures.  Here is the best of them:

They're punchy and tired, and Jungle Boy's eyes are mostly closed, and when did he pick up the cat?  And why did I use such an awful background?

But these are my kids.  I sort of love the awfulness of the photo.

On the other hand, I have a bunch of incredible senior portraits I could use, like this:

I could scrounge up some recent pictures of Drama Girl in Europe. 

What to do, what to do.  If you're on my Christmas card list you'll just have to wait and see.  At this point I don't even know myself.  How do you choose photos for Christmas cards?
