Christmas Card Carousel 2013...

My dear friend, Faith is hosting her annual Christmas Card Carousel.  This is her 6th year to host and I always look forward to it.  Our mailbox has been full of cards for the past week - it's so fun to check the mail every day! 

I stayed up until midnight on Tuesday evening, addressing/filling/stamping our Christmas cards.  It's work but mailing Christmas cards every year is one of my favorite things.  

I had plans for our card this year but sometimes plans change.  Almost always in my case.  HA!  The ice storm hit on the same day we scheduled our photo shoot.  There was no way my friend, Ashley could come to us.   The roads were bad and there's not a photo in the world worth risking your life over!  So I decided to go with the flow and use a bunch of iPhone pictures that I had taken over the week while we were at home.  Alex was home with us and we had the best time sledding on the ice!  He was our "snow dog."  He would pull us up the hills and then we would sled down.  We had a fire going every day/all day.  We played, napped, drank hot chocolate, cooked a lot of yummy food, watched Christmas movies, decorated our candy cottage…I'm ready to get iced in again!  I really hope we get more snow this winter because Amelia and Sydney loved it.  My friend, Sarah designed our card.  I adore her and the card!

Now that it's post-Christmas I have time to catch up on this carousel :)

That is a great, memory-preserving card. Love it!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
