Happy Everything!

Without further ado… HERE IT IS, our holiday card!

People have been saying to us every year since our “Christmas Story” card in 2008, “How will you ever top last year?! You’re always outdoing yourselves!”

Remember the Awkward Family Photo card from 2010?  Truthfully, I’m not sure it’s toppable. And you know what, that’s perfectly okay!

The whole thing is so fun… until it’s not. We spend the entire month of November (and December most years) brainstorming ideas. Sometimes it’s just too much.

This year, I just wanted to take it easy. Take the pressure off and enjoy the holiday season with my newly beloved dog and my awesome husband.:D

All of this being said, if we come up with some crazy fun idea in the future, we’ll do it. But if we don’t, we won’t. NOOOOO PRESSSSSURE!!!!!! Are you with me?!

On that note, here’s the interior of the card.:)

And like always, we change up the logo to go with the theme of the card. There really wasn’t a theme this year, except… well… Murphy Mo was in it!:DHe kind of looks like Rowlf the Dog from the Muppet Show. And for those who are new to my blog, here’s a compilation of all of our cards since 2008.

Thanks to the many of you who were excited to see what we came up with this year.  I’m quite happy with it. After all, we didn’t have a family picture with Murphy Mo until now!

High fives go out to Ryan Hunley for snapping the pic, Corrie Renfrow for the scarf, and Noble Vestal Labradoodles for Murphy.:DBOOOOOOOM!

Sending love your way this holiday season.

And really, take it easy!:D

Love love love,

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon

    Bobbi, your hair is amazing!!! I felt like saying the same thing about No Pressure after I embroidered a pair of whitey tighty’s with his company logo for my uncle’s Christmas present. I don’t think I ever topped that.ReplyCancel
