This year is the first holiday season since Ben's college graduation and I have to admit to having grown accustomed to his coming home for all the holidays! Of course, now he's a working man and his schedule isn't quite as flexible for the holidays.
Because of making this new adjustment, I've felt a bit off this season and coming up with a Christmas card idea was eluding me since we always took photos for it on Thanksgiving Day. Our Aly came to my rescue with a hand drawn sketch of each of our faces! I love that girl. And her talent. I took the sketch, scanned it, then created a digital design to send out for printing. I quite like how they turned out.
I was a bit late in mailing cards this year, but since most have been received, I'll share the front of our card here. We've had a wonderful year as a family and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
