This Year's Christmas Card

I have to say...I go a little overboard with Christmas cards.  I just love them.  And I love to look back at ours over the years!  It is my favorite mail time of year - I love going to the mailbox and getting sweet pictures of my friends and their families!  I start thinking about our picture and design at the end of the summer!  Nuts? I'd say so.  But I love it that much.  And I think my obsession with it has gotten worse since having kids. :) (I think the Christmas card and the kids' birthday parties are the two areas I begin planning way too far ahead for - ha!)  Anyway, here we go - years past pictures and this year's card!

First, I want to start off with a look back at the Christmas card picture over the years! ...
2006: Just Married
 2007: We had Sadie!
 2008: Last one of just the two of us (we also had a picture of Sadie on there!) - and we included the fact that I was pregnant!
 2009: First Christmas with a wee one!  And we also had a picture of Katie by herself
 2010: Another family shot - it is so amazing how quickly Katie changes from year to year!
 2011: Little did I know I was actually pregnant in this picture! 
And 2012...first Christmas with two kiddos!
I LOVE our card this year...the picture is amazing...Christmas colors...dots...and of course the people (and furry creatures) that are with me in the picture!
