What do you get when you mix a

14 year old St. Nick,

a 6 year old mini St. Nick, 

a 3 year old Christmas tree

and a 2 year old elf??

The truth is that the outtakes make me smile as much as the ones where everyone is calm and looking at the camera!

My favorites and our cards this year:   


“Sharing with you the miracle of new hope and new life through the glorious gift of Christ our Lord!”
