…from our home to yours.

This was our card this year:

And I really hope they arrived to everyone on our list…you can never quite be sure when you have five helpers in various stages of stuffing and stamping with piles of half-processed cards all over the kitchen.Man oh man it’s so fun to get those out the door…

…and to get new piles from those we love as we go to the mailbox each afternoon.

The only problem with using a picture from the summer is that kids change.

And to me, fluffy hair rules 🙂

We wish you the merriest of Christmases.

Love, Shawni


  1. This may seem like a strange question, but it seems like you all have such nice hair! Especially Elle in that picture of stuffing Christmas cards. What sort of hair products do you guys use? Or is your hair naturally so nice and shiny?
