Last year Dean asked that a T-rex be in the next Christmas Card. How can I say no to that? With the help of a friend, I have plenty of references to the original Jurassic Park to make this a very funny card. If you aren’t a Jurassic Park die hard, I’ll point them out…

The front of our card has all the usual things, the crazy scenario, the funny acting from the kids and even the dog, but it has a few subtle JP references too. Note the Barbasol can under the tree. How else would one smuggle dino embryos?

Next we have our wardrobe. Ben and I have a reverse look to the main characters. It just worked that we already had the right stuff to do it that way.

Dean (and yeah, those are his real abs. The kid’s insane) is pulling off one of Malcom’s most iconic scenes and poses.v

Makes me giggle…everytime.

Here is the inside of the card:

And of course the back…a sweet cup of hot cocoa…with ominous ripples. And if you don’t get that reference, it’s time to watch Jurassic Park.

All in all- this had nothing to do with Christmas, but it was hilarious to make! And it seemed to get everyone’s attention.

I mean, we used a flare (not really) 

And I got to use a whole lot of gifs in my blog so…bonus! lol

Be sure to look at our past cards in case you missed any!
