This year’s Christmas card

Posted on

We haven’t gotten professional pictures taken yet for this year’s Christmas card. It was on our to-do list but just never made it happen.

So the other night we decided to take some pictures ourselves.

They didn’t turn out to bad.

And I got to thinking that they are probably a better reflection of our life than professional pictures would be.

It might just be the perfect Christmas card.


Merry Christmas! 2011 was a great year.  Here’s a little bit about our life this year…

Most days it feels like we have four kids instead of two.

While we are thankful for Pat’s job and his 21 years working for a great company, alot of the time Daddy comes home from work stressed out and tired. But still manages to be the world’s best husband and father.

All day long the kids suck the life out of Missy, which means she loves them dearly and every day is a complete joy.

Angel enjoys laughing at everything we say.

Caleb eats alot.

Missy got a nose job this year.  Angel turned four but is a little small for her age.

Caleb turned three and is doing great in school. He also has a mean throwing arm. But we’re trying to make sure he doesn’t get a big head about it.

Pat and Missy trained for and ran their first marathon this year. Pat said it was the hardest thing he’d ever done. But you can’t tell that by looking at him. All his training is keeping him thin and trim!

Merry Christmas from our family to ours!  We hope your faith wasn’t stretched too far this year and we pray big blessings for you in 2012!
