McRae Family Christmas Card 2012 (in case you didn't make the cut this year...)

Let's face it, Josh and I know a lot of people!  We have been apart of many groups, gotten to know many people, developed great friendships, and could EASILY send out a Christmas card to HUNDREDS of families and friends!  I am truly sorry if you did not receive our Christmas card this year!  I've had these sitting on my counter since Thanksgiving, but finally got them out this week :)

If you did not receive a card this year, here is what you're missing out on - so really, now you're not missing anything!  If you're like me and keep your cards every year (yes I punch a hole in all of them and put them on a ring...they're hanging up in our living room now from 2010-present!) print this and enjoy :)

Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year!  

Our Christmas Card was made using Shutterfly.com (my personal favorite customized photo gift site)

Seeing Callie grow up into the smart, beautiful young little lady that she is, and seeing how quickly Collin & Carter are developing their own personalities, makes us so thankful for all the time we have together.  Our home may be messy and full of baby & toddler toys & equipment, but our hearts are over flowing with love!
Celebrate our Savior’s Birth and have a very Merry Christmas!
