Christmas Card

It's December!!!!! My favorite month of the year! I love, love, love Christmas time! I always start thinking about Christmas in October and one thing that I think about is our Christmas Card! My tradition is to have them all mailed out the day after Thanksgiving. This way everyone has our address on hand,to send their Christmas Card right back. I love to re receive them in the mail too!

This year our Christmas Card was taken at the new house, that we closed on Nov 9th!!! It was so fun doing a photo shoot with my dear friend in front of our new house. It was even more fun being able to share the news through our Christmas Card .

Everyone that has seen the card has been asking where I got the apparel:
What I Wore:
pleated poppy
Dress: Old Navy
Earrings: Macy's
Necklace: Target
Bracelet: Gift from Mom
(Husbands Sweater was also from OldNavy & kids clothes were gifts)

Another reason why I like doing Christmas Cards every year is because I love to compare the previous cards and see how our family has aged over the last 5 years!

Christmas 2011: The Girl's 1st Christmas!

Christmas 2010: We announced we were pregnant with Baby #2 and that it was a Girl!

Christmas 2009: It was the Boy's 1st Christmas!

Christmas 2008: We announced that we were expecting our 1st Baby!

Christmas 2007: We were newlyweds & excited to spend our 1st Christmas as Husband and Wife!
