we LOVE Christmas cards. the crazier the better. here is a sampling of our last few years of cards. we enjoy putting them together and we enjoy hearing from our friends and family about what they liked (or were shocked by) in our cards/booklets/full sized posters/way too much information that we send out every year...

here is our Christmas card playbill booklet 2006...

and then we upped the make up factor for our 2007 poster (my parents were VERY thrilled with this card. not...)

we decided to take a break from the make up in 2008 with an all too realistic wii instruction manual (some of our friends had young children who mistook our card for proof that their parents had bought them a wii...)

our homage to reality tv gone wrong with a fold over guide to our own tlc show in 2009...

2010 ushered in the era of the iMarshalls. it was a quirky little folded booklet. no envelopes. lots of "app"eal. ha...

2011 was slated to be our last Christmas card ever... if you believe the mayan calendar. so we went with a world is coming to an end because the marshall plan is being implemented politically. which i believe might actually happen...

2012 may be the end of the world, but we did get our cards out right in the st. nick of time... and in 3D no less.

our 2013 card. infographics. this one was a BEAST to put together. and went out later than any other card. but it went out before Christmas. barely...

our kNEW year's 2014 card (which arrived at the last minute of 2014) was an homage to ALL the college brochures that we have been receiving for the past 3 years... it was also the first card that came together SUPER fast. i had lots of help from the kids and adam. i came home after school let out for winter break and worked on it for friday afternoon and evening. it was at the printers by saturday.

2015 was a PRIME year for our Christmas card...
