So this is Christmas…

I am sitting here drinking a glass of wine (even though I shouldn’t be), watching A Christmas Story, and having the least stressful Christmas Eve ever.  The presents are wrapped, the stockings are hung, and two little girls are snuggled in bed wearing their new Christmas PJs from Buddy the elf

This was just going to be a brief post wishing you a Merry Christmas, but then I realized I never showed you our Christmas card!  I mentioned previously that Shawn didn’t like the idea of “Fall” pictures on a Christmas card, but after 3 tries, I finally found a card he approved of:

What do you think?  When I posted our pictures from the photo shoot, I asked which ones you thought I should use, and I honestly think I ended up using almost all the ones you chose!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and that Santa brings you everything you deserve!  Next week, I’m hoping to be back with a post on why I will never call this blog boring again or wish for something exciting to happen!

LOVE the card! I never thought to do yearly updates in my card. I think next year I will do that (since we don't talk to all our family enough).

Merry Christmas!

And there in all its glory is your awesome Christmas Card. You totally rocked it!

I hope your Christmas ended up happily and that everyone is full of joy!

Last night, Hayden asked me what Santa was going to bring him tomorrow - I had to tell him Santa had come and gone and Christmas was over. Poor thing. Hopefully, he copes well.

So far, so good.

"Talk with" you later!

Hey sweetie! I love loooove how the card ended up coming out. I think you made some amazing choices and even though Shawn may have been a big reluctant on the fall theme... i think that in the end it came out just perfect and I am sure he thinks the same (even if its tough to admit it, lol). I hope you holiday was amazing...you deserve it!

I LOVED getting your card in the mail! It was definitely the best card I received this year.

I hope your Christmas Day was as relaxing and enjoyable as your Christmas Eve.

Lots of love to you!

I think the card looks great! Honestly if you hadn't mentioned Fall I wouldn't have even thought about the leaves in the picture. I love the girls' sweaters too. :)

Erin said...

your card looks fantastic, but I'm all distracted because I don't know how you went this long without ever having a babysitter! omg!

Happy Holidays, Tami!
