You have CHANGED MY MIND on the photos. When I put them up for the vote, I had already mostly decided to use Option Five. I had some reservations, but basically that was the decision. Now I am going with Option One. Here are the things that swayed me most:
- the negative reactions to the bed--even though lots of people also said pshaw to that concern
- the comments about how Elizabeth looked sad, and especially the ones about how she looked excluded from all the loving cuddling--even though people also said she looked funny and cute and only-girl-ish
- the comments about how everyone seemed so HAPPY in Option One (happy is one of my primary choosing factors)
- the thing about everyone in Option Five being in socks except for Edward, which I hadn't noticed
So not only are you influencing my Christmas cards this year, you're also influencing my furniture decisions. (Also, I DID get the canape plates. AND the shirt. Okay, two shirts.)
If you HAVEN'T voted yet, it's not too late: I may still be swayable.
