The busy elves.

The elves are folding,
sticking and stamping as they assemble our annual 2010 Holiday Christmas cards.
We have a couple of rules when it comes to our Christmas card.

1. Steve is the official author of our annual Holiday letter. He has been for 18 years and he usually interjects some type of a humorous twist in the annual recap. I have saved every letter he has written since we have been married. So far, they are just in a file, but some day I'll make a book out of those letters.
2. Our Christmas photo must include our whole family. This is actually Steve's rule. He requires the photo to be of the family so the recipient knows that we belong together. I have artistic license on the picture choice. Some years it has been very difficult to get a picture of the family that I really like. Last year I resorted to a collage of photos because I didn't have the perfect pic. This year was a different story because my bestie, Heather {of Heather Hubert Photography}, did a photo-shoot of our family a couple of months ago. I had a lot of options and the only difficulty was narrowing down the choice.

Here are a few pics that didn't make our 2010 Holiday card...
When you receive this year's Christmas card from us, know that it was assembled by elves of the highest caliber and much thought was put into the letter content and family photo choice {photography by Heather}. In other words, be impressed. Be very impressed.
If you don't receive one, then blame it on the terrible weather in MN because I know the USPS is doing its very best.
