Briggs and I were cleaning up his room when I found one of our Christmas cards from this year tucked behind his bed. I pulled it out and put it on the dresser only to find it a couple days later behind his bed. Then I realized he was taking the card to bed with him. In fact, I’ve found him carrying it around the house and I’ve found it a number of random places – including the bathroom.
When asked about the card he opens it up and names every one in the picture. And he always refers to his sister as “My Hallie”.
A couple things I love about this card. First – is the family picture – we stopped on the side of the road with a tripod and within minutes snapped that picture. Steve mentioned it was the least painful photo shoot we’ve ever done. Second – we’re holding the sign I made a few years ago (where every letter was lovingly cut by hand) that hangs in our living room. Third – it had a smooth touch finish which was smooth as butter. It’s no wonder Briggs likes carrying it around!
Here’s our not-overly-traditional-but-more-traditional-than-years-past Christmas card.
