Card Prep.

I love the idea of a perfect Christmas Card.
The entire family, coordinating outfits, happy faces and write ups on the family. I love getting cards like this in the mail, well I use too, when we lived in the States and received them (Although I did get THREE last year in the Sandbox- thanks ladies you know who you are and how awesome you are to me!)
I've always wanted to be a family like that. One that was happy and sent out happy little Christmas cards. For the past four years we've done it, we managed to send out cards. This year we did it again. Not perfect Christmas cards mind you, but perfect enough for me. It was a lot harder getting two little guys to cooperate this year in the same photo, I can only imagine what next year will be like.
This year I had higher expectations of a family photo with smiling little boys on the beach, and being pregnant. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. Results that I shall not reveal until you my friend, open your mailbox and find your Dille Christmas card happily awaiting for you to line on your mantel with the rest of your cards. That's half the fun isn't it? Real mail with friends and family wishing you a Merry Christmas. 
So to tide you over until that card comes to your house, here's some out takes of our mini photo shoot.
 I didn't realize until looking at this photo how big I am getting and this was two weeks ago. 27 weeks.

 A huge thanks to our friends here who organized the family outings to the beach, supplied the props and Adrienne who took a few amazing photo of us.

Shouldn't life be filled with moments like these.  
Hugs, A
