Yes we fed our kids a bowl of Trix at 7:30pm on a school night. But, bananaphone.
2017 resolution: clone ourselves. 2018 resolution: take over the world. Carras family holiday card 2017. Happy holidays to one and all!
Do not worry, no children were harmed in the making of this holiday card. Cheers to a smashing good 2017!
“Pink” – Art direction by 3 year old
I must confess that these holiday cards can be a bit stressful. We never know what to do, we don’t know where to get the appropriate attire, we don’t want to spend hours and hours and hours because who has the time?!?! But yet we love (kind of) to do them. This year as we were on our way to Goodwill to get “inspired” (ha!) we asked the kid what we should do. Her response: “Pink.” So, there you have it. And I’d have to say this may be one of my favorite of all time.

Yip yip! Big baby girl has made her second debut in our holiday cards. Not sure how long we can keep this up but we’ll try as long as we can.
We were just a wee bit slow in getting our holiday card out this year. We did have it ready before 2013 came around, we really did, but since we were living the simple life in the 55+ community in Palm Springs we were seriously retired folk. Think late afternoon swimming, solitaire with actual playing cards and a bedtime of like 8:30pm…it was divine! Crazy how we went from being new parents to full on retirement all within a couple months. But, as 2013 hit we decided it was time to come back to reality and get our holiday cards out, not to mention get back to work and such. Anyhow, I would say this card truly captures our current state in life: our days have been vibrant, simple and quite honestly very very pleasant. Life with our little gal is awesome and I’d like 17 more kids if they are all like her.
Not sure how I have not gotten around to this yet, but the 2010 holiday card!
And since we made a mess and took 600 some photos we decided “Why not make a time lapse out of it?” We hadn’t intended to do this but the video adds a little spice to the mix (ha!).
Holiday card 2009: full of carnies
Oh you bet we did. Frequently asked questions: 1) Is Cooper’s hair real? 2) Is Cooper’s chest hair real? 3) Is Cooper’s necklace real? I’ll tell you that 2 out of the three of these are a yes.
