This is our annual Valentine tradition since 2011. This is our 7th year of making a funny face photo of the kids. And I can't get over how grown up they look in this year's photo! Where are my red chubby cheeked kiddos? (Note to family: We mailed you your magnets! You should be getting them soon.)
Here is this year's box of chocolates funny face Valentine photo:
And here are the previous years: (Cue the tears...and bunny bear made an appearance in first year's photo.)
I print the photo as a 2x3 magnet at MPix. For the last three years I have used the same template. I've made a photoshop template and just pop the photos in. It's pretty easy now. The kids take selfies with my camera. We pick out 12 of their favorites each, I pop the photos into the template and that's it. I hardly touch up the photos. I may adjust light, but that's it. This year we went with faces close up, compared to the previous years. Next year we'll probably go back to photos that aren't as close, since we all agreed we like that better.
If anyone wants the template, let me know. I can put it up in a different post. Otherwise, you can always make your own. Happy Valentine's Day! Do you have any annual Valentine's traditions? We also make an I Love You Pizza every year....or an "Olive" pizza. Get it...olive...i love! We make a heart shaped pizza with olives on it.
