Christmas Card 2012

Hello friends and family, I did a terrible job trying to get Christmas cards out, so this year's card is an update & pics on the blog! Bear with me, the pics are not the best!

I've decorated our outdoor fireplace since we don't have one inside...

an old red gate from our barn

 That lil North Pole sign  is a piece from a broken picket fence I found & painted. The sign found its way to the front door on the antique chicken carrier. Speaking of chickens, we've adopted 2 more hens...which brings us back to 8 and that makes a few more eggs for us yipee!

We had a great time at the Family Farm in Graham picking out & cutting our own tree. All proceeds from tree sales go to purchase food to be shipped out through the organization Feed My Starving Children .

L&L ran around in the "tree maze" playing hide and seek, then we attempted a Christmas card photo and here's what we got.........

then I attempted a cool montage Christmas card....
Awesome! Yes! Finally I got it right......all but the Snyder "Eamily" so I kept it to share with all of you, because I'm just not perfect ....but I'm perfectly happy being the Snyder Eamily mom!:)

We had a great year of firsts!
First ....
year of Kindergarten, ballet, soccer, 6 day motorcycle man-trip, running a 1/2 marathon, and first tooth loss!

The tooth fairy came and left $5.00! She would have left a dollar, but when the midgies loose their teeth right before bedtime they get what's in the tooth fairy wallet...and there were no 1's.

 I almost forgot our very own Lydia was Mary in the Pre-School Christmas Play!

That's all for now......

Happy Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!
