(Dis)Respecting the Turkey

Shocker that I would disrespect the Turkey, right? Pffff. You're lucky if I respect the jack-o-lantern. Christmas comes but once a year and I like for it to last 2 months. Is that too much to ask?

On Saturday, my older sister, Kristi, and I went shopping for Christmas outfits for Ben, Carter, and Gracie. We wanted Ben and Carter to wear the same outfit while Gracie Girl would wear a dress to match the boys. After 4 hours at the mall... we finally found the perfect outfits for everyone. Later that night, Bob and I went to our favorite place in the entire world, Franklinville Inn, for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. It was wonderful, like always.

On Sunday, Kristi and I (along with our husbands and mom) took the kiddos to Picture People for a few Christmas pictures. I scanned a few last night for your viewing pleasure. Don't adjust your color, both pictures have a retro finish to them ;)Classic Carter face....

We then took them to see Santa :) Luckily, we didn't have to wait too long, but Carter fell asleep right before we got to the front of the line and he didn't want to wake up. As a result...

Lastly, our beautiful Christmas cards came in the mail last week. I love how they turned out! It wasn't easy finding a card that matched the picture we wanted to use, but I think the finished product turned out adorable. My favorite part is that the picture has the same matte finish as the card... it's not glossy like most photo cards. It's beautiful.

Is it too early to say Merry Christmas? You're right. I guess I'll wait until after Thanksgiving.

I love the Christmas card!!! I think I saw you and your sister at the Christiana Mall Saturday in Childern's Place. I didn't want to say anything incase it wasn't you! Ben, Carter and Gracie could pass for siblings instead of cousins!
