White family Christmas card 2011

Ok.  So this is my parent's Christmas card they are sending out this year.  It cracks me up for MANY reasons.

1 - Most of us look like rag-a-muffins. We had been to the Arkansas/Texas A & M football game earlier that day and most of us had changed clothes already.  Also,  no one was there to take the picture.  It was sitting on the counter on a timer.  Cheese!

2 - You get a great shot of the BACK of Hunter and Colson's heads.  I guess no one needs to see their face anyway or maybe Mom and Dad think they are ugly?

3 - Abby has a silly grin on her face as she is staring at Allie and not the camera.  Again, cheese!

4 - Mom and Dad aren't even in the picture!

5 - Bo looks short and he is FAR from being short.  He usually is towering over everyone in our pictures together so I think he looks funny.  Sorry dear.


As I look at this card I also see a dove.  A dove that represents Reese and I love that.  I love that my dad has a precious, sensitive heart and last year also put the dove on the White family Christmas card.  I love that the dove is there.  I love that Reese is in heaven watching over us every day like the dove is above Katie and Jason's head.  Reese is very much a part of our family and always will be.  We all love her and miss her.  Not a day goes by that she doesn't cross my mind.  I know it never will.

I love my family.  All of them.  I am blessed and will never take for granted how much each one of them mean to me.  We are the Griswolds.  I love it.  Merry Christmas from the WHITE family!

I love all the funny reasons. I never thought about Bo being short. Ha! You are still so short in front of him so he still looks tall to me!

Yes, we are the Griswolds, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Love you!

When Katie posted it on her site, I immediately noticed the back-of-the-heads! Too funny. And I love how they honor Reese.

Merry Christmas!

What a sweet and thoughtful dad! Not many would do that I don't think. This picture is so funny! Much better than getting all dressed up and not looking like yourselves! Have a merry Christmas with the Whites!!
