Christmas card 2010

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

I want to sincerely wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.  This blog has been so rewarding for me.  I love being in touch with other families like ours. Exchanging wisdom, laughs, faith and memories brings me so much joy.  I learn a lot from y'all.  I value all of the kind and supportive comments you make throughout the year.  I wish I could send you all a Christmas card.

This one above had TONS of sun flare. When I managed to get rid of it I lost some clarity in the photo.

As a last resort, we asked my friend to use some "potty humor" to get Kate the kids to laugh.  My friend is very reserved and refined and we laughed so hard when she finally came up with some mild potty humor.  It sounded so funny coming from her!

Dave took the one of me and Kate and the one of me and the 3 peanuts.  My friend, L, took the ones of all five of us and she made us laugh very hard:)  Thank you, L....if you see this:) I took all the rest:)

P.S.  Several of you noticed that yes Scout does have a stocking.  I actually bought extras last year when I had all of ours monogrammed (just in case our family expanded).  So I do have another for Snickers....I just have not had it monogrammed yet.  And since Snickers ate my favorite Tory Burch shoes the other day...I am not sure that it is getting monogrammed just yet!! I still have a spare one after that though just in case we should ever need it:)

  1. These photos are beautiful! Yesterday I saw the precious dress she has on (the green one) at a little boutique I was in with my daughter. We were told that company is going out of business! Sad to hear because their clothes are precious!

    Merry Christmas. And, as to the comment, *Hurt people Hurt people*

  17. Love the pics! Wishing you a Merry Christmas, too! Back to the booster seat... I am expecting twins and found a site, www.albeebaby.com where I just ordered my double stroller. Anyway, they have all Britax 25% off and free shipping over $100 so that makes the Frontier $209.99!! I am ordering one for my three year old! I love a good deal. Code is Britax25.

  18. The picture of you and your 3 peanuts is a keeper...it's beautiful!

    I love your choice of card! So much so that we coincidentally picked the same card in a different color. I bet yours didn't have a typo like mine did.

    Merry Christmas 3 Peanuts!

  21. What beautiful photos Kim. I'm back, I just got a new laptop after months of not being able to type much at all. I've been thinking of you and Kate since the accident and praying you feel better now, both mind and body. Wishing my peanuts the best Christmas.

    PS Can't believe how Kate has grown since the first Christmas. She is one beautiful little girl, just like her Mom!
