This morning we were in Pasadena and the boys were climbing on this incredible tree.
It gave me the idea to go over to our local park, climb a tree, and then take our family Christmas card photo up in the branches. We did, and it turned out lovely. Not as lovely as my first idea that revolved around our now defunct move to Macau, but for a last minute Plan B it's totally acceptable. No, I'm not going to post the card here, I'll wait til Christmas to do that! But the cards will arrive at our house this week and then we'll do the address and stamp boogie and get them back out ASAP. We normally send out around 200 cards. This year for economic reasons, I only ordered 70. So now the pruning will begin! Of the card list, not of the tree...

Boys in trees. Brilliant!


  1. If we are pruned we will be very sad...
    And what company do you use?

  2. Just an FYI, neither the Hammonds nor the Laughreys have been pruned! However, I don't have a new address for the newlyweds so somebody better email me one! This year we used Kodak's photo cards.

  3. Nothing says Christmas like climbing a tree in the park. :)
