A Time for Christmas Cards Gone By...

Our 2014 Family Christmas Picture

Can you believe it's already the middle of December?! I seriously feel like yesterday I was on the soccer field and today I'm getting ready for Christmas. Today actually feels like Christmas is around the corner now that our trees are blanketed in white snow. I know rain means no shoveling (or plowing our road!) but rain also means ugly, bare trees that don't give you that "christmasy" feel.

Since this snow is getting me into the Christmas spirit and as I am receiving all the lovely Christmas cards from our friends and loved ones it has had me looking back to our old Christmas pictures. I love looking at the Christmas cards and seeing our family grow through the years! I thought I'd share those photos with you...some of you didn't even know our family way back then! I don't have the actual card but I have all the pictures we used for our photo card. It's all started in 2003...our first Christmas as a married couple. We had been married for almost a year and I was 8 months pregnant with Noah! That seems forever ago...enjoy the look back!

2004-Noah is almost 1
2005-Owen is 2 months old

2006-In this card we announced
baby #3 was on the way!
2007-Gabe is 4 months!

2008-Will is 1 month!!

2010-Finally a splash of pink! Jena is 5 months

2012-This is by far my favorite picture because of all the smiles!!!
Tess is 1 month!

"Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!"
