Christmas Card Carousel

What better way to share our Christmas cards with one another than through the Christmas Card Carousel hosted by Faith. I am so glad you decided to do this and I knew when I saw it, I must participate ~ Thank you.

The front of our Christmas card. Does she look like she is up to something in this picture or what?

The card we selected is actually 5x5 on Linen paper, so this is the inside and it has to be folded in half. I love the size of these cards, but the Post Office obviously does not because they charged me .59 to mail each one of them instead of regular postage. You can click on this one to enlarge...look at that look on my sweet babies face. I could just eat her up!
The back of card has a glimpse of Mommy & Daddy, but the focus is still on Emma. One of my Aunts called last night to tell me she got her card and I think she thought the photographer just chopped our heads off. I don't think she even realized this was the look we were going for (ha ha). She kept saying, "I could only see part of you and Curtis".
This is the 2nd year we had our photographer, Darla DiStefano do our cards and we could not be happier. She has to be one of the most talented people I know and her work is amazing.

I can't type this post without telling you that my heart is happy thinking of what my card will look like next year with both my babies on it, yep that's right...Emma will be 30 months old and Gavin will be 10 months old this time next year. Oh we are going to have so much FUN!

WOW! I don't know what to say! That is the most awesome Christmas card I have ever seen! I love Emma's expression in the red smocked dress and the caption is just perfect!

The photo on the back of the 3 of you is so special! (How funny what your aunt said!) You have an amazing photographer and I don't know why you were worried that she didn't get any good pics because they are ALL awesome!

Thank Miss Emma for sharing with all of us!
