Merry Christmas from my family to yours…

Just wanted to pop in to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Here is the front of our holiday cards (can't see the soft pool stamped snowflakes on the bottom…)

12.23.10 Christmas Card 2 JenMcGuire
I made 150 of these bad boys. While sick with a terrible stomach bug. And with a kid who was sick with the same. And a husband out of town. But our family takes sending Christmas cards seriously, so I got them done. Colin did all the gluing. Ken usually does all the writing and such, but he escaped his duties due to his trip. 🙂

I truly hope your family time is amazing and that God gifts you with wonderful smiles and laughs. This time of year is even more special to my family because in addition to the birth of Jesus, we get to celebrate the births of two other wonderful folks.

December 24th is the birthday of my incredible mom…

Have a wonderful holiday, my sweet blog friends. See you soon.
