Is anyone as confused as I am that Christmas is just 2 days away? How did that happen? CRAZY I tell ya, it was just yesterday we were ringing in the new year! Wasn't it? Well, we are settling into the realization that Santa will be visiting the Davis family again very soon! It's a good thing we've all been on our very best behavior all year long.... yep, that's right, all year long. Shhhhh, that's what we told Santa!
We are so happy to have my mom and dad visiting from Florida. They are missed so much throughout the year. My mom comes in a couple of times a year to take care of our kids while Bob and I travel for our business, which we are so grateful to have her help. We don't get to spend a lot of time together when she comes in because she needs to get home to my Dad. So, it's always incredibly special to have them with us at the holidays. My brother, Scotty, will be in town from Ohio and he is always a joy to have around. Our kids love him so much because he's like a big kid himself. My step-mom will be visiting from Arizona too, so it's going to be really fun to see her. And of course, we'll be visiting Bob's side of the family as well, who are also very special to us. Blessed we are......... indeed!
For breakfast this year we're going to have some yummy Williams-Sonoma chocolate croissants that were sent to us from the beautiful Benton family! Thank you Roxie, Curt, Bevan and April...!!! We love you all so much. And a big thank you goes to Jen Hester
and Kenny Kim
for taking really wonderful family photos for us! xoxoxo!!!
I can't wait to spend the holiday with our family! I wish that we spent more quality time with our extended family during the year but I will take what I can get. Bob and I get so busy and I reluctantly admit that we don't take the time to stop and relax with friends and family as much as we'd like. It's one thing that I want to really work on in the new year.
This year we sent out 300 cards and it was really hard to narrow it down. We have an extraordinary amount of people that we really wanted to say thank you to and wish them a happy holiday. Every year our business continues to grow and we are grateful to God for blessing our lives with amazing clients, vendors, and friends (personally and throughout the photography industry).
We wish each and everyone of you peace in your heart as you spend the holiday with your loved ones. We pray for the families who are struggling in any way or without their their loved ones this holiday. May your heart be lifted in praise this Christmas for the wonderful gift of Jesus and the joy He brings to our lives. Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year.
May 2012 bring us all much happiness, good health, and prosperity!
~ Bob, Dawn, Bobby and Alli, The Davis Family!
