Christmas Through The Years

I am participating in the SITS Merry SITSmas and here is my little contribution...

I am sharing our Christmas cards pics from the past few years--since Gooser was born. Going back any farther requires too much searching and scanning (all pre-digital!). Here we go!!

2003--Gooser's First Christmas. This pic also features my sweet dog Monte (right) who is no longer with us.
2004--Monte is still there!
2005--Teddy is holding our newest dog addition--Hazel.
2006--This year we have two new additions! Pickle (sleeping in Andy's arms) and Petey (sitting in front of Gooser). I loved this year's card because I did it in pinks and pale greens and thought it turned out so nicely! The card itself was green and pink with a big pink ribbon--the perfect way to celebrate our first baby girl's first Christmas!
2007--Last year's cards. I feel like we just took this pic! The years fly by so fast...
We did take this year's Christmas card pic over the weekend (see yesterday's post) but I'm waiting to share it because I'm doing kind of a different concept this year and I want to wait until it's all ready to go! But we did manage to get a good one!

Wishing you a Happy Holiday Season from The Fun House!!

Be sure to stop by SITS--they're giving away a $200 Target gift certificate!

That was an awesome retrospective! My sister and BIL have a miniature Italian greyhound - isn't that what you've got yourself a passel of there? (I mean, besides the kid passel...) She does the agility stuff, or used to when she was younger - it is so fun to watch her whip through the course!

Anyhow, Merry SITSmas, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! Cheers!

It's so amazing to see the kids as they grow over the years. I'm still trying to figure out what to do for our card this year. Oh, the pressure.

Merry SITSmas!

I have been a bad SITsa lately. Today is the first day in almost a week that I've even been out to the sight. NaBloPoMo almost killed me. *lol* Well, that and our kitchen remodel, which is going horribly! *lol*

Great photos! Merry SITsmas!
