But this year is different! This year, it's really gonna happen. This year, we are a family of four, which feels very official in an ohmygosh, SO grown-up way. And grown-ups send out holiday cards. Or so goes the logic inside my head.
When I determined that yes, 2012 is THE year, the I'm-really-gonna-do-it-this-time,-don't-try-to-stop-me-guys Christmas card YEAR, I also determined that I had exactly zero pictures of the four of us together. But! Thanksgiving would mean that we would all be in the same place at the same time, and in pretty good moods (thank you, delicious eats), and there would be another adult around to take a photo. Perfect!
Fortunately, I have a million and a half adorable pictures of the kids, which I can combine into an adorable, extended-relative-pleasing collage of holiday cheer.
