Our Christmas Card!

Merry Christmas - Kevin, Amanda, Miley and Howie

Merry Christmas, everyone!! :) I truly wish peace and joy to every one of you this holiday season. Thank you all so much for reading this year. I cherish each and every one of your comments! :) I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

Thanks to my sweetie Kevin for getting the tree out of the attic and setting it up for us! He even vacuumed up all the needles afterward. :D

Love the card! A few days late reading this but our card is on the blog (too lazy to find the link) but the banner is essentially what we sent out if you want to check it out. So classic of my kids!

Hope you had a great Christmas!

I hope you’ll get this comment since I’m posting on such an old post, but I love the pictures of your tree and I am hoping you can help me. I am taking Santa pictures soon and want to get the look of twinkling lights, but need good lighting for the pictures. Any tips on how to get the sparkly lights with bright lights?

Jennifer :)
