I just thought I'd share my little tip. When my girls were having their first Christmas, we took them to Santa, and since they didn't cry hysterically, I liked the photo. I wanted to make photo ornaments out of it, and when I went to Michael's (crafts store) I found photo frame ornaments that said "Our First Christmas." JACKPOT!! It was weeks before I realized they were intended to be for a newlywed couple, but they worked perfectly for twins! Here's a pic so you can see what I mean.

Great idea! The ornament and the girls are adorable.

Oooh, must go to Michaels today! Though our Santa pic isn't so cute...one of my older children decided to try to 'straighten' one of the babies heads right before the picture...and by 'straighten' I mean try to twist her head off It was unrecoverable, but still makes a cute memory

That's awesome! I didn't get them an ornament by accident last year and this would work perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

That is so cute!!! And, I couldn't tell it was for a newly married couple at all. Beautiful!

I love it! It's perfect, and I think it's funny that it was supposed to be for newly weds. I would not have guessed if you hadn't told!
