Merry Christmas 2011

This year we decided that, in honor of the German Tudor style of our new home, we would pay homage and dress up in full German gear.

Lucky for me, my parents lived in Germany before I was born and my mom acquired an authentic dirndl while living there (and I fit into it -- key).

So, I hit up the interwebs and found some lederhosen for my men to wear (big props to my WONDERFUL husband for playing along and helping make my vision a reality).

The pictures below adorned our Christmas cards this year.  I have no idea how we will be topping this for next year, but I have absolutely LOVED getting emails, letters, texts and FB messages from friends/family who received our cards and have told me how much they loved them.  I even had a few friends tell me that it was the best card they had ever received -- which blew me away because now what do I have to aspire for in future years???!!!  ;)  Still others shared that our pictures inspired them to do something similar for next year's Christmas cards -- I can't WAIT to see what they come up with!! Please follow through, friends!

And now, to start pondering/planning next year's cards....LOL.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas to you and yours!

May your 2012 be blessed and joyful.

Our new house -- Nov 2011

Maybe we should've removed that scarecrow...ah, it adds character, right?

Being silly -- poor little Max -- it was pretty cold outside.

And look at Big Max actually look like he is enjoying wearing lederhosen!

LOVE this family.  They ROCK.

That is seriously adorable. Sam chewing on his straps... and then trying to get the straps in the next one! And YOU? You could rock a feed sack. You look awesome in anything, even traditional German attire. I hope your Christmas was relaxing and peaceful. Love you!
