Why you didn't get a Christmas/New Year's Card

We have been so busy this holiday season it's unbelievable! And our trip to DC didn't help things. I really wanted to send out a Christmas card but waited to the last minute of course. But at the last minute, the weather seemed to always be bad or it was hard to find a time for all of us to take a picture together outside. I said just forget but then Annie talked me into doing a late Christmas or Happy New Year's card. I had all my labels ready to go and my stamps bought but still couldn't find time. We decided after church on Sunday we would just stay dressed up and have my dad take a few snap shots, hoping one would turn out. Well Joe ended up having a really bad headache and it was way too sunny still. So obviously none of them turned out I was planning on giving up but decided to hold out for Christmas day and we could take one in front of the tree. Well Joe ended up being really sick (more on that story in another post) and stayed in bed most of the day so I just threw in the towel and called it quits. But thanks to so many of you for your cute Christmas cards. I loved getting FUN mail instead of bills and I hope to send you all one next year! Just to prove my point I added a few pictures. PS-don't try and tell me that they turned out good b/c I know better than to believe you!

Your dress is really cute! And of course your kids always look really cute. It's hard to have everyone look good at the same time. I am excited to see the rest of your posts!

I didn't do a card this year either. I really intended too, and started looking at photocards online way back in October, but waited too late to get back to it. There was just so much going on. We were going to do a late/happy new year one, too, but that didn't happen for us either. Glad to hear we weren't the only ones :)

We are totally sending you a card, I have it all addressed and everything, I just keep forgetting to send it in the mail. And we cheated, we only took a picture of the kids, not us, so after sitting them down and snapping like a million photos, we found one we liked. Every year seems so busy for cards! And pictures, and family letters...just blog about it! =)
