Merry Christmas!

(Above is our Christmas card from this year....
Merry Christmas to all of you from our family!)
Christmas is only hours away. I feel sort of out of sorts this year because our typical routine has been rearranged. (Remember, I am the "routine" person.) Normally we would have spent all last weekend at my Mom and Dad's house having our family Christmas, but with the twins arrival we decided to wait until the weekend after to have our family Christmas. Hub's family has gone to South Carolina. So I am making a grocery list and starting to cook for our Christmas meal. Hubs has requested sausage balls. Little Guy wants hash brown casserole. Big Guy wants our traditional overnight coffee cake.
I finally finished all the Christmas cards. I love the Christmas cards every year. I not only design ours, but I design cards for quite a few friends as well. One special card I designed this year also doubled as a birth announcement too.
What a difference a year makes! This is the card I made for them last year....
I always enjoy making a card that my Mom can send out with all her "grands" on it:
I posted my Christmas morning coffee cake recipe here! I hope you enjoy.
Merry Christmas!

Deanna, you have a gift for graphic design. Have you ever thought about marketing, or advertising?

Love these pixes! Our routine is a little disrupted, too. Our Family Christmas was postponed until Saturday, because of travel considerations, and everyone living in such far-flug locations. So we're having a small family dinner on Thursday, then the Big Deal on Saturday. But we're still sticking with our main tradition...Christmas Church really kicks off the season for us!

These cards are beautiful. And so festive! I'm way behind this year. So I sat down to finish up the design on our family card and the computer screen flashed blue. One of our IT friends calls it the Blue Screen of Death. So, looks like I'll be starting over, designing on a tiny laptop screen, and sending New Year's cards out instead!
