Christmas Cards

It is my favorite time of year again – Christmas card season! I love getting Christmas cards from everyone and look forward to the mail coming every day this time of year. I got our Christmas cards out a couple of weeks ago and love how we tried something a little different. This year, we used Randy’s drone to take our family photo. It was so much fun and I want to do it every year! But I think my favorite part was Ada singing at the top of her lungs while we got the cameras set up. It definitely got everyone’s attention at Jump Off Rock. But she didn’t care one bit and neither did I! I am so proud! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And of course; the only way to work on Christmas cards is by the fire, listening to Christmas music, while sipping on a festive drink! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas! Happy Friday!

Christmas Family Photos

One of the things that I look forward toย during the holiday season is making and receiving Christmas cards. It makes getting the mail everyday so much fun!ย I love seeing everyone’s beautiful families and all the different styles of cards. I have been using Shutterfly for our Christmas cards since we have been married and I have saved each one. It has been so much fun looking back and seeing how much our lives have changed from year to year.

This year we took our photos at my family’s farm. Our dear friends helped us take our pictures. It took a village – one to take the photos and the rest jumping around and dancing to get Ada to smile and/or laugh. My so serious child! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I love how the turned out and they will be treasured photos that I can look back on and remember this sweet time.

I just love these two!

Ada was really into growling at this time. Thanks to Halloween and Randy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And my favorite picture of all time! Definitely hanging this one up in our house somewhere! Those big, blue eyes – makes my heart melt when she looks at me like that.

Special thanks to Adam Zipperer for taking these great photos.

Merry Christmas from the Maples Family!
