This is my last post before Christmas. I know that I cheated because nothing about this post is black and white and it happens to be Wednesday, but I am stretched a little thin this week and don't have much extra time to play on the computer, edit photos, or blog, but I at least wanted to share our Christmas Card.

I hope that you all have the most wonderful holiday season.

May your Christmas be filled with love, laughter, and many blessings!

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

With Love,

Lisa, Pat, Nick, Sarah, and Reagan

I think it is A OK to cheat since you are busy as can be : )

I love your Christmas card. So beautiful. My favorite thing is that Sarah's tights are on backwards. I think you are brilliant. I would have never thought of that.

Merry, merry Christmas to you and your family Lisa!

Oh, Lisa! Your card is BEAUTIFUL --from the front cover to the inside spread to the back cover. Every picture just fits in so perfectly.

...and your children are lovely!! You got smiles out of every one of them and they were looking at the camera, too!

Have a most magical (first) Christmas with Reagan, Sarah, and Nick and your husband! :)

You know how much I love your card this year and it's standing on my card table making me smile each time I pass by. It really is gorgeous!!!

(Thanks for the great chat today - oh boy, did I have fun with all the tricks you shared with me. Dan had to go out and bring supper home - I was occupied. Kids didn't mind - it was MacD's.)

Have a wonderful, relaxing and fun Christmas, dear friend!!

Hugs,
Wanda

Oh Lisa!!! I just LOVE the last picture:) For me, it shows a big brother's love and protection.

I have to say, I am so impressed at how well she is doing. I don't think I have ever seen such a relaxed little face and smile on such a newly adopted little girl. God has answered my prayers. Love you and have a very Merry Christmas!!!

You know I think this card is just gorgeous! I forgot to tell you, but I've had several people come over lately and ask specifically where your card was so they could see new pics of Reagan.

I hope y'all have a wonderful holiday and that Reagan enjoys her first Christmas with her forever family. Love you girlie! Looking forward to seeing what kind of mischief we can get into in 2011. :)

I love your photos (I think I write this everytime I leave a comment... but it's true) I would like to know how do you set a photoshoot with you own kids? because everytime I say to my girl "let's take some photos" she goes "Oh no..." and keep making funny faces to the camera.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
