Kickin' it Holiday Style

So first let me post my 25 days of CHRISTmas pic #2. This is an idea I saw on a website a couple of seasons ago and just loved it. (Remember my love for snowmen=) This was right up my alley, and so easy. I just love it. So it hangs on my front door during the holiday season. So this is CHRISTmas day 2 through my eyes. (Sorry again about the bad pic ~~ we have such a good camera too ~~ I really need to take a class . . . anyway)

So now onto some CHRISTmas card pics. Let me preface this by saying, if you are in the fam and don't want to see pics of the CHRISTmas card coming your way, just stop, STOP I tell ya, just move on with your bad self and wait for the mail to arrive.
Okay, but if you like to live on the edge, oh do please keep reading. And let me just say that we do NOT take a normal CHRISTmas pic. Probably because we are anything but normal. So if you are expecting the sitting in front of the CHRISTmas tree smiling and being serious kind of pic, ummmm yeah your out of luck.
So with out further ado. . . .
I give you CHRISTmas card pics 2008!!!!!

Oh aren't we cute ~~ oh except what's up with that "my parents are making me take these dumb pictures" look on your face Dak. You know you like it . . you know you do :-)

Okay so we focused this year on what is going on in our lives at the present moment, and yes that would be this leg of mine. So in this one I'm choking them because of the pain hahahaha!!
Hey Dak quit laughing I'm in pain here!!!!!

Oh the pain the pain!! Good one Dak ~~ thanks for the love!!!

And then of course here they are waiting on me hand and foot/knee ~~ their so kind ~~
And again tending to my every need.

Okay so anything but normal right? But we so love taking CHRISTmas pics that show our personality and the joy of our family life. Because it is much joy. These two bring more frun and laughter into my life than I can express in this simple, mid-western girl's blog.
I love them so.
Well thanks for taking a little trip on the old 2008 CHRISTmas card train. (There has been talk of a sequel this year ~~ if that happens I'll keep you posted =)
P.S. There were a couple of other ones that are a little more normal, so don't worry we do have a couple normal pics wanting to make it to the CC. I'll post what made the cut in a few days . . .


  1. Those pictures are adorable! I'm happy your pain is more manageable now. I am praying for you! Love you, friend!

  2. I love it! Dak is SO HANDSOME...oh my goodness! I know you are so proud, but I just have to say that he sounds like such a wonderful young man....so cool to always hear about him seeking God and lovin' his momma!!! I think the last two pics are my fav....you guys are just too precious!
    Thanks for loving on me and blessing me every day!

  3. So cute! I love it! I was just thinking today that I wanted to do fun pictures next year that show Luke and I's personality!! Do you do a newsletter to caption these pictures?? Don't you just love Christmas cards??

  4. My favorites are the one waiting on you hand and foot/knee and the next one. The caption for that one should read "tending to my every KNEE-D! (-:

    Hope you're having a good day today and that the PT is going well!

    Love you!
