We've Been Good for Goodness Sake

funny family christmas card picture idea

This year I wasn't planning on mailing Christmas cards. My original plan was to design one and spread our good cheer via social media. I started feeling overwhelmed early on this holiday season and didn't want to add an extra "to-do" item to my endless list.

When I received this double head sweater during the Target + TOMS collaboration, a few girlfriends insisted that we wear it for our Christmas cards. After throwing together a few props from Dollar Tree, asking my sister-in-law to snap a few pics during Thanksgiving and finding the PERFECT card layout on Shutterfly, I couldn't resist getting a few printed, stamped and delivered.

We typically take traditional family pictures this time of year, but we decided to have a little fun with the "sweater of all sweaters" and let our true personalities shine through. At first, I was NOT a happy wife when Ross didn't change shoes and had his boots tucked in his pants, but honestly, this is him...at the deer lease, in the country, surrounded around what he loves most. And my girls, well the pictures speak for themselves. This is us in all our glory.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas, happy holidays and many blessings in 2015.

I am not sure how much I will be around in blog land over the next week or so. I am trying to plan a few posts in advance and hopefully stop in to say hi during our ski trip, but if I don't, I wanted to say thank you for an amazing 2014 and all the love and support.

Merry, merry EVERYTHING!! xoxo

P.S. I am skipping the Random Wednesday link up tomorrow to celebrate Christmas Eve with friends and family.
