The Best Christmas Card Photo Shoot Video ~ Ever!

Updated on September 17, 2014

Our 2007 Christmas Card Photo Shoot was a real Circus!

Ever wondered what it is like to take a photo of 5 children under 4 years of age? In 2007 we tried to take a good picture for our Annual Grandkid Christmas Photo Card. It was such a chaos, that I quit taking photos and just filmed it. I edited the film on the computer, added in the resulting photos, found background music, and voila!

The Best Christmas Card Photo Shoot Video Ever!

I think it is just hilariously adorable! But I know that people who do not know us personally might find it boring. You be the judge and let me know.

What is important about this video is the fact that we love our grandchildren. In fact, children are the reason that one should get excited about the holidays! The magic, the joy, the time spent with the family, the birth of a Christ child that would teach the world about loving mankind. That is what the Christmas Spirit is all about.

PS-I used the Christmas Video as a DVD Greeting Card to my Family. They LOVED it.

Image shown here is of 4 of the grands a little more grown up. Cute, huh?



The Top Five Reasons Our Christmas Circus is the Best Christmas Video

  • It will make you smile; maybe laugh out-loud!
  • Tis the season--
  • to be jolly!
  • Remember the reason for the season!
  • Yes! You! Happy Holidays (or anytime holidays) from my family!

The Christmas Spirit caught on Video! - My video is "Christmas Circus".

Remember the reason for the season, you all. The Holiday Season is about family. Watching the smiles on the faces of your loved ones when something pleases them. That something does not have to be an expensive gift, either. That special gift could just be a lollipop. Or a kiss under the mistletoe.

Where is the best site to buy your Holiday Photo Greetings? - Christmas Photo Cards--Reviews of Companies

I used Costco to purchase my Christmas Photo Cards. For two Christmases we have had the best experience using the online ordering for these cards.

If you have used some other company, write your experience with it in the Guestbook. This can be your official consumer forum for Christmas Cards.

If you do not have a Costco membership, I highly recommend TinyPrints and I have used them many times. The cards I have sent were printed on high quality paper and the photo reproductions were excellent. Tiny Prints also has excellent customer service. The banner is below. Click on it to visit their website. This company has some really classy as well as classic cards you can put your photo on!
