The Christmas Card Edition

This is Flashback Friday on steroids.  Here are our Christmas card photos from every year that we've had kids.  (Before we had kids, we sent plain ol' boring Christmas cards.)

1996-New Orleans
Quite possibly my favorite Christmas card ever. Christian was only 2 months old in this picture.

1997
"Not a creature was stirring, but one little mouse!"

1998
"Have a Tigger-ific Christmas!"

1999-Kansas City
We moved to Kansas City this year.  And there was snow!  And it came in time to take our Christmas card picture!  (Add fantastic snowman-builder to the list of Jim's talents.)

2000-St. Louis
Welcome to Coleman

2001
I made these purple and gold Santa hats for the boys just for the photo.

2002
"Wise men still seek him."  

2003
We welcomed sweet Carolyn this year.  Cute picture, but BORING.

2004-Philadelphia
I still remember trying to get this photo.  Talk about a lot of outtakes!  And trying to get my one-year-old to hold a wreath and smile at the same time?  I must have been on crack.  Whatever.  It's still cute!

2005
"Reindeer Games"

2006-Atlanta
"Raisin' Cane in Georgia"
(Get it?)

2007
"Dreaming of a White Christmas"

2008-
"Silent Night, Holey Night"

Anyone have a cute idea for next year?  :)
