This is our Christmas card for 2008. I'm really liking the individual picture template where we don't have to take a gazillion pictures hoping to get one with all three kids looking the right way and smiling at the same time.
And I promise you we do have a last name. I just took it off to limit stalkers. Or people who'd like to beat me with a shovel.
This will be a busy week for us, filled with baking, presents and birthdays. For this week we will celebrate the birthdays of Marlie, Jesus and Haven. (in that order) That's right... two out of three of our children have their birthdays the week of Christmas. Don't worry, neither of those two children get combined birthday/Christmas gifts. Even our extended family send a separate birthday gift, wrapped in birthday wrapping when they mail us Christmas gifts. In fact, since we now have two Christmas trees, we have decided that the purple tree will also be known as the "birthday" tree. All of Marlie and Haven's birthday presents go under the purple tree to make present distribution a little easier.
So this week it will be a little crazy, and a lot of fun... but mostly, we're going to enjoy each other as a family and be thankful for our many blessings.
