Christmas Card Carousel

My sweet friend, Faith is hosting her annual Christmas Card Carousel! It actually started yesterday, but I wanted to hold off until everyone received my cards. I didn't get them in the mail until Tuesday. If you haven't received our card yet - this is what you'll be receiving soon!

Going to the mailbox in December is way more fun than any other time of year! It's always neat to see what card design everyone chose & to receive pictures of my sweet family & friends. My Uncle was sweet enough to take some pics for us. He is so patient and Lord knows we all needed patience on the day we took pictures. I was determined to get some pictures of our family of three on one of the downtown trolleys. We literally chased trolleys for 2 hours. HAHA! Seems like every time we would see one - we would have just passed it in our car, it was completely full of people, or we decided to go into a coffee shop for a little break from the cold. Alex was ready to pay any amount of money to the trolley that would sit there for a few minutes and let us take some pictures. It was quite humorous. Needless to say, when we saw this empty trolley coming - we took off running and my Uncle was behind us snapping pictures! HAHA! A shot of us chasing the trolley was going on the card - because I wanted to remember how stinkin' funny it was to get these pictures. The one of Amelia smiling so big (in the middle) is actually when she was in the car waiting for the trolley. She was so happy just to be out of the cold, I'm sure. I found this card on etsy and had the designer change the quote to a scripture that I chose. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

I could only chuckle that we both picked the same verse for our cards this year. OUT OF THEM ALL. I had never seen it on a card before!
