Christmas Cards

I love, love to get Christmas cards in the mail. In the past my fridge could barely hold them all, so I decided to get a Christmas card holder. I love it almost as much as I love getting cards in the mail! This year has got to be a record for getting the most cards. I have loved finding a new one (sometimes multiple) in my mailbox everyday. So thanks to everyone that sent us a card. I love them all!

Here are the pictures I used for our Christmas card this year. I think the pictures turned out pretty cute. I apologize to anyone that didn't get a card from us. I had to make the cut somewhere. It is a lot of work to hand make every card. I had to stop at 60. My mind and hands couldn't take anymore. Maybe next year I will get smart and do the cute ones you just print off at Costco or something and then I can send out hundreds. Well, maybe not. I don't know that many people that would actually be interested.

Not exactly like the card I made, but pretty close.

Jill was the excellent photographer for this picture. I love that everyone one of us is looking at the camera and that most of us are smiling. And it helps a lot that my kids are just so darn cute!
Really, if you didn't get a card and want to be on the list for next year let me know. I will for sure get one to you!

I think that has to be my favorite family picture so far. I can't believe how good everyone looks. I think Oakley wins the prize for the cutest smile in this one though. It makes me laugh just looking at her.

I LOVE that picture--how amazing is that. Impressive to have all those kids smiling at the same time. Ryan and I cant do that when it is only us two--let alone all 5 of us. Great background. Love it!

I love the PEACE idea you did. Thank you so much for sending us a card...it made us so happy! You sure must be patient to have hand-made 60 of those bad boys! Totally worth it though, right?

I'd love to be on your list in the future. That family pic is amazing. I can't believe you are all looking at the camara. You even have more than half of you smiling! Very good. I LOVE snow pictures too. You are clever to have pictures of your kids with letters that spell peace. I can't even spell the first "Ho" in Santa's favorite greeting with my posterity. Maybe someday... :) You guys are Beautiful!
