It began a few years ago as my wife, Kathy was looking to start a family tradition.

Each year the contest takes a different twist and we get about 4 weeks to prepare.

The simple rules that Kathy announced on Thanksgiving was we had to use the plastic one dimensional snowflake she was giving us, and take a picture of it with a cameraphone and send it to me before the Christmas eve gathering.  No photoshopping allowed and also no pets or cute babies.

Here’s the dozen entries.


We had a tie for first place and before I reveal who the two winners were, which ones do you think should have one?
Drop me a note in the comments, and I’ll reveal the answer soon.
