Greeting Cards Have All Been Sent….


Yes, Karen Carpenter, our greeting cards have all been sent. Well, almost…just hunting down the last few addresses.  How do your like our Christmas card for 2008?

Bias or not, I can’t help but loving the spontaneous moment this picture captures, the magic of our children experiencing Christmas, the glowing light, and the gratitude that fills me for each of these four silhouettes that I have the privilege of claiming as my sons. 

Once again I kept a "humble" list this  year, in order to save costs and time, so I’d be happy to share the JPEG (picture file) for you to print,make your desktop background, wallpaper your kitchen, etc. Just send me an email (quatro_mama yahoo com) and I’ll send it right out! It’s even better printed.


Merry Christmas, Darlings!

    Jen~ I have followed your inspirational blog for sometime and have yet to comment, but tonight your picture moved me to tears. Thank-you. This trully is why I love being a mom and I thank God everyday for my blessing. Merry Christmas!

  41. Jennifer says:

    LOL… I thought I opened a different blog and was really puzzled by the picture on the card. The lady whose blog I thought I pulled up only has adult children and they are girls. I thought the part about claiming them as her sons was a joke. All the while I kept thinking they look like your boys. I know I should pay more attention to the headers. I was just trying to take a quick look at everyone’s latest post and didn’t take a second glance. Anyway, I love the picture. I think your boys have easily caught up to my daughter who arrived a month before them (and early).

  42. I love it! The tree looks so pretty all lit up…and the boys are so sweet sitting around it, taking it all in! So cute.

  43. Gayle says:

    You made a very beautiful card…ncie job!
