with christmas approaching,
we've slowly, but steadily
been working on gifts for our families.
we've done a little decorating,
a little baking,
a little crafting (as in making a paper angel to sit atop our tree).
yesterday i put together our christmas card.
i don't usually mail one out.
the cards are usually just an edited photo i give in passing at
holiday events and gatherings.
this year our photo card is pretty cute and pretty chill.
i put it together from a photo shoot we did this summer
(when the kids ages were 2,3 & 4)
with my amazing and talented friend,
(you might remember these incredible photos, taken by her in 2010).
this year i told her i didn't want anything too fussy or too posey.
i wanted "us" in all our messy hair, dirty faces,
elephant shirt and butterfly dress glory.
i think she nailed it.
i thought i would share the photos here,
in case our paths don't cross this holiday season.
i thought i would also share my most
sincere hope for your blessed holiday.
Joy to the world,
The Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King.
