Christmas is just around the corner and things here are at a constant hum. The family is going away to Nova Scotia in a few days and they won't be back until Christmas Eve, I am looking forward to having some peaceful naps with The Nanny while the rest are gone!!

I have been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks on Christmas cards. The PM scoured through our iphoto pages looking for the perfect holiday pic to transform into our card. So this is how it turned out.

Not too bad, but let me tell ya, Banshee rarely walks around surrounded in a golden mist.

It just doesn't ring true to how things really are around the holidays.

So I've taken some time to compile some examples of what I think our card should be.

~Go Wild! Enjoy glitter glue this holiday season.~

~Best Wishes to the "king of the castle"!~

~Jealousy abounds this festive time~

~May you find peace this time of year and a fancy bathing mat.~

~Shake things up this Yule!!~

And my personal favorite...

~Remember to clean your eye this Christmastime!~

What do you think?

I bet the PM will be happy that I have things lined up now for many years to come.

From our home to yours, have a very joyful holiday!!!!!

Joyeux Noël!!!
