I need a clever Christmas caption! I love this pic of my boys. I like funny, quirky, sayings, nothing too Hallmark-ish. Any ideas?
Thank you so much!

I manage these three post pubescent bad boys. With their guitars in hock, they're making a stab at a Capella. Oh, it's the tall one's voice that keeps cracking into soprano.
(Too long? Yeah, I thought so. You could just go with the greeting).

Thanks for all the feedback and all the great ideas for our photo!
I do appreciate it!
We took a picture of my husband and I kissing and my two boys are giving an annoying look to the camera. We need a caption for the photo.
Mommy's supposed to be kissing Santa Claus!
Just you wait!
I need a cute caption for our Christmas card this year. I have a cute picture of my son sitting with his elbows on his knees and his chin in his hands. It looks like he is pouting. I may add an additional picture of him smiling also. Any ideas?

Naughty or Nice -- Santa's counting twice!
Put a red ring with slash - the universal "no" symbol - around it.
I'm trying to come up with a witty saying for our Christmas card. I have a very cute picture in his little construction hat while using his hammer. Not, very Christmas-y, but so cute. I'm currently pregnant and was trying to think of somehow working that in. I know there are a lot of witty people out there, please help.
Christmas is a hit at (your last name) house!
Also guessing the little guy with the hammer is your son? How about Merry Christmas from ( you, your son, Dad, any other family members usually on your Christmas card )and "New Baby-Under Construction".
We took a picture with my 8 year old girl holding a large gift tag attached to my 5 year old girl (who is all wrapped up in ribbon) that says: "To: Santa From: Your Secret Admirer". My youngest has a priceless "mad" face because she is offended that big sis is trying to give her away. I can't think of a cute saying to go with the card though! Any ideas?
Can't think of a caption, but it has to be something about her big sister being on the "naughty list"!
How about "She didn't put enough postage on me and I got returned to sender"!
Please, when you pick one, send us the shot and who's idea you chose? I can't wait to see it.
We took several family Christmas pictures and in every picture my husband, my 8 year old, and I are smiling, but also in every picture my 4 year old is making a silly face. I would love for someone to help me come up with a Christmas card saying to match my silly 4 year old. Thanks.
Hasn't learned what a smile is but he/she keeps trying.
Helping that Frown turn upside Down...and we will keep trying!
When you pick one, share with us? PBP
I am needing a caption/phrase for my daughter's Christmas card picture. She is 18 months old. I made a "fake" Santa with just his legs and boots sticking out from under the Christmas tree. I have 1 picture of her making a face in front of Santa and a 2nd picture where she has on a Santa hat with a grin and Santa in the background. My plan is to put it on the card as a before and after type shot. I need a caption that would go with these photos. Does anyone have any ideas?

We vacationed at the beach and the kids were all buried in the sand. Any Christmas Caption ideas to go with the picture?

Where Santa goes after delivering a very merry Christmas to you!
This is our idea of a White Christmas! The children are all tucked in the sand while visions of sugarplums dance in their heads!
I have a photo of my husband and I at a wedding, but we are wearing Christmas colors. It looks like it would make a great pic for a Christmas card, but we're listening and looking serious. Any funny ideas? Help would be greatly appreciated!
Sleigh bells? Who invited Santa?
I need some suggestions for a caption for our photo Christmas cards this year. Our picture is of me, my husband, and our two daughters (8 and 14) on the beach, jumping up and having excited expressions on our faces. My brother edited the photo to add Santa hats. I was thinking, "We just found out we're on the nice list" or "So excited that Santa's on his way", but those seem boring. Please help.

Santa texted us down south for directions... he's on his way!!
My personal thought is to use the lovely sounding original photo without the Santa hats with a caption like, "We are joyous for our gift of the real reason for this season!"
I have a picture of my 3 grown children shooting guns on a recent trip to Texas. I want a cute saying to go on my Christmas card.

We're taking a "paws", and on the inside To wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. (12/08/2009)
Snips, snails, and Jingle Bells (front of card)
That's what our Christmas is made of (inside)
I agree with suntydt! You'll be able to get a lot more clever captions to choose from if you could share the picture :-) Oh, and is the card a standard card with the photo placed inside or will it be a picture postcard sent alone in an envelope? (12/08/2009)
This is my grandbaby, Natalie's, 1st Christmas. I thought this picture was priceless.

I am making our Christmas cards this year and I need help with the caption. On the front of the card is a picture of out tree knocked to the ground in our family room. When you open the card, our one year old is next to it wrapped up in lights. I need a funny saying to go with this. Any ideas?
