Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! 
-Love Eric, Briana, 
Cohen, Conrad, and Moriah

Jesus is the reason for the season!

This is as close as we are going to get for sending out Christmas cards. Enjoy! ;)

 I don't know why things like that can be so difficult when they really are something you can do very fast these days all online with your own photos. Though for me instead of stressing over getting it done I just choose not to do it.

But still why is it that the littlest things can be so hard to do take cutting three little children's nails for example. Seriously the struggle for my children to let me do this to each of their fingers and toes, you would think I was giving them shots. They all fight it. But once I get it done I feel like I ran a full marathon and I feel so accomplished. Only to turn around and get scratched the next week an get to do it all over again. :) 

One of my goals for this next year is to get organized with my children's photos and make them some photo books. With not printing our pictures out these days they just sit in files in our computer and I have almost lost all of our photos twice. I really pray I can do this and get caught up on photo books for Cohen and Conrad. Seems like it should again be so simple especially with shutterfly and other internet sites you can use. But I haven't ever been really good at things like that and I hope to change that this year! 

So even though we didn't do Christmas Card that doesn't mean we haven't enjoyed getting them! 
I love the good old Christmas cards that actually require you to use ink, but I also love the new ways you can be creative with adding photos. Eric and I decided we were going to pick our favorites from the ones we received this year. Though we enjoyed them all there were two we have for the winners!

Drum roll please…………………….

The most creative goes to ……


The cutest goes to ……

{{Congrats to our winners! Excited about our new tradition and to do this again next year - 
no pressure people ;) }}

These two cards inspire me to be good at taking photos of my children and to be organized with them! 

Knowing both these families and both working moms shows that you can find time for the little things. If your enjoying your first little baby or still cleaning up after your older boys be encouraged that if you like me find it hard to get the little things done it can happen! 

Thanks for all the Christmas wishes from all our family and friends! I am excited for another New Year! Comment below with your goals for this next year, we can be praying for one another on reaching our goals!
