That was this year’s giant-sized Christmas postcard (Ree left, Ro right), and here’s a peek back at our Christmas cards over the years (just because I got all nostalgic and went combing through the image archives).
Last year (2009) was the year that TubaDad and I got all ambitious and set up the white background in the garage. The pics and the card turned out really cute, but boy that was a lot of work. Ro has the red bow and white dress and Ree has the green bow and black dress:
In 2008, the girls decided Santa was A-OK. We got smiles with the man in red, and then had them sit near our red family-room wall and grabbed the two individual shots (Ro left on Santa’s lap and top, Ree right on Santa’s lap and bottom):
In 2007, my mom and I thought we’d jaunt over to the mall with the girls and get a quick, happy shot with Santa. Yeah... They sure were happy about everything else Christmas-related though. Ree in silver, Ro in red:
And 2006 was our first Christmas with Ree and Ro. We came home from China on Nov 4, and then went to see Santa a little over a month later, to the girls’ supreme displeasure. They switched places in the pics, so Ro is on the left in the first pic, and Ree is on the left in the second one.
Prior to 2006, TubaDad and I sent out detailed, humorous Christmas newsletters every year. Funny, we don’t seem to have time to do those anymore... Good thing we have a blog. Heh.
Have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends!
