Merry Christmas

I just wanted to stop in quick to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!   I appreciate you taking time throughout the year to stop by, leave a comment, read a post or two, ask about the boys, etc, etc. – and I just wanted you to know that!

Speaking of boys, how about a few photos I took of the boys while trying to make our Christmas card?


First up, a couple of Carter






And a few of Max

And the photo that made the cut (There may or may not have been some Photoshop used on this photo.  I kind of know how to Photoshop heads around from different photos)

And we’re done


Happy Holidays and I hope to see you back here in the New Year 😉

  14. Nancy says:

  15. Karen Wolter says:

    so very cute pictures of the boys and how they are growing so. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family

  16. Carrie says:

    I love all the pictures… but there is one missing. Two. One of all three of your boys – small and big. And one of the whole family – Romi too.

    I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am for you and Joel. I always thought you’d be amazing parents but… there are a million reasons why some folks aren’t. Then you wrote about what you’d gone through, and then you had Carter, a miracle to be sure. Now Max. If anyone ever doubted that good things do happen for good people, your family is proof of that. I really am so very happy for all four – five! – of you.

    I hope you and your entire extended family have a safe, happy and very Merry Christmas. And that 2015 brings you good health, good fortune and much happiness!

    Really! Even more than this year! 🙂
