Last year around this time, CCE offered a post called "The Top 10 Reasons Why We're Boycotting Christmas Cards This Year" (click HERE, Mom). This year, we actually pulled it off. We managed to get cute photos of the girls in their Christmas best:
Of course the photos were done separately because holding out for a successful group shot would have meant we weren't sending out Christmas cards until 2025 or so.
We were torn on which photo of Lydia to include. She did her distinguished smile...
...but who doesn't love the incredible winking baby?!
And as appealing as the idea of a lovely card featuring well-groomed, well-behaved, formally-posed children is, we would be remiss not to represent the chaotic reality of life around here. In an attempt to inject some humor into our holiday greeting, we decided to have fun with the fact that we've had such a nomadic existence. The 2015 Christmas card also served as a moving announcement, too.

Stay tuned for a recap of our Christmas celebration with Travis' family. Until then, wishing you a fun and safe New Years Eve and a happy and healthy 2016!
