For the inside, we took pictures of each of us holding a large number cut-out that we made. Our daughter was 20 months old at the time, so getting her and the animals to cooperate was no small task. Speaking of my daughter, don't you just love her little wool knickers!? They were a red and white houndstooth material. So cute! We put a little Santa hat on her, too and she looked so festive.
And finally, on the opposite side, I used a white ink pen to write our names on. Since you could see the holes from the grommets, I incorporated them into our names. The "o" in Jeromy (I know, it's spelled weird!), the bottom loop in "a" for my name and the top loop in "e" for Ella's name. It worked out beautifully. I don't know what we would have done if we didn't have the right letters??
