holiday cards

I love, love, love sending (as well as getting) holiday cards each year and I get so excited to start sending them out. ย This year Jamie, Jay and I met up with Nan, Jeremy and Leyton to get family photos for the cards- I took theirs, she took ours and man-o-man do I love how they turned out!! ย I am super, duper lucky to have a wonderful and talented friend,ย Nan, who is willing to put up with my crazy ideas (trespassing in an orange grove to get family photos done) and then design my holiday card each year. ย She is amazing, trust me, and I love everything that she has ever done for me and she’s done a lot.

Since, I sent them the week before Christmas and I am assuming everyone has already gotten them; I am going to post a few more from that day that didn’t make it on to the card but are too good not to share…

one, two, three- wee!! probably my favorite from the day

announcing

So I was finally able to finish sending out Jay’s birth announcements last week. I feel horrible about not getting them out sooner- people will understand right? At least I hope they will. I mean when you just have a baby you don’t have time to address a ton (yup, there were a ton) of envelopes and then run to the post office. I am crossing my fingers that we have understanding family and friends.

My dear, dear and talented friend Nan designed the announcements for us and they turned out fabulously! She made two for us to choose from but since I couldn’t choose we ordered some of each- love, love, love them!

Here are some other pictures from that shoot that I love. It’s so hard to believe that he was this tiny once, where did my tiny baby go? Btw- Jay was 7 days old in these pictures.

a little view into what Jay sees, a lot!

P.S. The beautiful blanket that we used in these pictures was made by Jay’s very talented Mimi :-)
