I'm on the record for liking Christmas cards. And I'm also on the record for being the family hoarder historian.

So the other week, when my sisters and I were talking about Christmas cards, and years therein, well, I was able to reply to Jane's questions "What about our 2005 card? And wait, what about 2006?" because they were all safely stapled into the Almighty Trip Book. So I sent the rest of the cards from those years to my sisters for good measure:

Mele Kalikimaka, baby.

They love me. I love them too.

Portugal. I know, right?

That's us. And, yes, Mistah really *did* get up out of the Westy and bike to the beach to take a sunrise photo.

Not so much a Christmas card as a representation of the lovelies from 2005.

Aw. See? They weren't always reprobates.

They're all gigantic children now; they were mere goobers then. 

Us again. Fort Davis. Moonrise during hike. Can you stand it?

Imagine all the cards I could come up with if I were home with that book?

Aw, what a fun flashback to those cute little boogerheads. The emails you sent in response to Jane's original request all bounced, so this is the first I've seen of the photos... I mean the photos of the photos. I've seen the photos. Nevermind.

Love this!

I am on the record for liking Christmas cards too, Ellie. In fact I know what our 2013 famiy card is going to be already. Yep.

Love the juxtaposition(sp) of your cards with your sister's cards ;)
