Wishing on Shutterfly

I have trouble with Christmas cards every year, whether it is getting them out in time or getting the "perfect" picture. Although the perfect picture is practically impossible with 3 kids under the age of 6,  usually one is looking at the ground, one at the other, and one picking their nose, I want something cute, something silly, something I can send to my family that shows the characteristics of my children. I used Shutterfly before the birth of our 3rd and the card came out great. Last year, I has just had the baby before Thanksgiving, and between recovering from the c-section and his brief stint in the NICU, the holidays came and left, faster then I could even whip out my camera and take a picture. And the years before when they refused to get dressed in holiday gear, I didn't put up a fight, but this year I'm making it happen. Hopefully  dressed and smiling, which I'd apparently have to wish on a star to get them to do, I hope to get a great picture to make up for my lack of holiday cards last year. And with Shutterfly's amazing selection of holiday cards and  with their awesome designs, I shouldn't have a problem. The card will look cute, no so sure about the picture. 
How many takes does it take to get a good holiday picture?
Here are my attempt at holiday cards throughout the years.
 I had enough trouble with 2 kids, with 3, wish me luck!

This year. I think I'm going with the No Mistletoe Necessary, or the Joy Magic Story, or the Pictures in Red! If I could just make up my mind.
