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!

I am linking up with Kelly's Korner and the Show Us Your Life series. I cannot wait to look at other families' cards and get ideas for next year!
*And if you usually get one from us and haven't, I'm so sorry!! I have a few to send out today...time got away from me with getting the rest of ours out! :)
