Brown Family Christmas Card - 2008

In true Brown Family fashion, we are just now getting our Christmas card complete. This is always quite the event every year that my kids really can't stand =). Why, you ask?? Well, let's just say that they are not and never have been very cooperative in posing for me, together...or somehow able to NEVER simultaneously look at the camera!!! Last year was the first year I did not send out a card as we had the same problem. So instead, I sent out an email to EVERYONE with all of our pictures or attempts =). For example...this one....
...and everyone loved it and told me to do this every year! It ended up being pretty funny, but they were so wrong to think that I would ever have the same issues again...HAHAHAHAHA!! So here you have it...all the runners up and Honorable mentions...and then the final card=)!!! BTW - here is where I had my card made =)! Enjoy!!!!!!



We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

The kids are so Christmas cute. I love it. I understand Tara, seeing your kids makes me want to have some babies right now!! (HAHA). Can't wait to see everyone. It's been forever. PS - I got your b-day gift in Atlanta - yes I was thinking about you in the ATL. What's up for New Year's Eve? I want to shop on New Year's Day. Talk to you soon and I hope to see you sooner!!! Nicole and me had the exact same birthday - dress and all - LOVE IT!!!!

Rachel the stars in the heavens must have lined up perfectly for you to have gotten that exact moment for the card. They never do that together! What an adorable shot. Love it!
