Best of 2016

Our Christmas cards are out (finally!) and I realized some of the pictures are a little small and they printed a little dark. So, I’ll photo dump here for any of you who want to see my smiling face a little better…

Let’s be honest: the kids’ faces.

Andy and I make quite a handsome couple, if I do say so myself,2016-christmas-card-6

But the kids are like a million times cuter.2016-christmas-card-15

And funnier.

First, here’s the design Jess did for the front. She does our Christmas card every year, and this year she (once again!) blew me away. Half is on her card and half is on mine, but I’ll put the pieces together here:2016-christmas-card-23

Gosh, isn’t that beautiful? And lovely? And poignant?

What was I thinking, using so many photos? Maybe it’s because I don’t have facebook anymore? I need to share ALL THE PHOTOS! It’s nearly impossible to convey one year in our family in a single card (or photo dump)…But I’m sure gonna try.

Here they come, in no particular order (and some repeats from Instagram), but all thoroughly delightful: 2016-christmas-card-122016-christmas-card-72016-christmas-card-102016-christmas-card-112016-christmas-card-82016-christmas-card-22016-christmas-card-162016-christmas-card-52016-christmas-card-42016-christmas-card-32016-christmas-card-92016-christmas-card2016-christmas-card-132016-christmas-card-142016-christmas-card-182016-christmas-card-172016-christmas-card-192016-christmas-card-202016-christmas-card-212016-christmas-card-22

If you made it all the way to the bottom, you must love us very much. And I’ll reiterate what I said in our Christmas card:

“…if you’re ever in need of fellowship or community, we’ll happily invite you over for a cup of coffee… or three. It will be a noisy cup of coffee, but we guarantee you will smile and laugh at least twice a minute. We do.”

Blessed Advent, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from us to you.
