Merry Christmas!

Our first official gift opening is tomorrow. Thus starts the Christmas rush. Guess we'd better finish up that last minute shopping! It's been a wonderful year for our family. Full of changes, but very fulfilling. Our girls bring so much joy to our lives!

For those of you who haven't yet received our card in the mail - don't feel left out! I haven't mailed them yet. This is so unlike me, but this year has been absolutely CRAZY with my photography business, and in the mad holiday rush I didn't have time to devote to hunting down addresses, etc. I'm just considering them "Holiday" cards and hope to have them out by new years!

Until then, here's a peek. Hope all is well with you and yours.
