family christmas card

i am so excited about our christmas card this year - i have it hid way back here in the beginning of november so hopefully family won't see it before it goes out next week! that being said, i totally wouldn't miss out on the paper mama's yearly card challenge! i was in love with last years and even more this year!
when i first sat down to make magic happen with our 'specifically for the card' photos i had no idea where i wanted to go with the card. immediately i cropped mine and tim's 'it's bright out' faces off and stuck with the 'why are you freezing us for this photo' faces the kids were sporting. mad props to amanda who was patient with my wandering icicle children while we attempted this shoot in the fog at 8am. maybe the hubs needs equal recognition for that. 
it's no above the fireplace photo, but i LOVE when the true essence of our life is captured - those are the best and my favorite kind of shots. so the card...i loved one year when my sister just sent out a card filled with words that described there year - i felt totally caught up in 5x7 and knew i wanted to try it out sometime. it was hard coming up with everything, we were so busy this year i had to go back and look at photos to try and remember all that we did! so, i hope you enjoy our holiday card this year!
i hate the way blogger compresses these quality wise, but you get the idea.
