It’s the First Day of Winter!

Happy Winter and Merry Christmas!

I got my Christmas cards (all but a few!) out on December 1st this year, per my annual goal.  I love sending and receiving Christmas cards in the mail.  It is great to see and hear from family and friends and I especially love it when we get updates on everyone’s lives from the past year!

Instead of doing a typical “newsletter” style card or letter this year we decided to have our cards printed with photos and on the back we displayed our Top Ten Highlights of 2014!  It was our fun way of sharing our highlights from the year.  Now that I have my blog to post all of our adventures, I love pointing folks here so they can get all the details!  If you would like to read more about some of our adventures from the past year, I have linked up our Top Ten Highlights below to the past posts where I shared all of our fun adventures!

(Pardon the horrible scan job, the cards are textured and thus did not scan well.)
