Goodbye 08 - Officially

This is it. I swear. After this post, 2008 is over and done with. When it's done, it's done - we're on to bigger and better things in 09. And it's going to be awesome.

NO DOUBT we would feature our dog-child as the superstar of the Christmas card. I mean, did you seriously think we wouldn't?

Quick story that illustrates my unconditional love for Ellen....as it turns out, she hates children. I mean HATES them.....when she sees one, she flips into freakout/attack mode and begins to lunge and flail. Now, God willing, Geoff and I will eventually have kids....likely, sometime in Ellen's lifetime. When asked by Geoff what we'll do if she hates our baby - I have no answer. All I know is that Ellen IS NOT going away. I'm not sure what that means - I mean...the baby won't be going away either, but I'm pretty firm in knowing that our precious love dog is staying put. Through thick and thin.

Anyway, yes, Ellen was front and center to the card we sent out to our families and our 2008 and 2009 clients. Sue me.

For all of you photographers - we ordered them through WHCC and got the 5x7 Wide Format Pearl w/ UV coating....LOVE them.

Come on Ellen! Children and all dogs but Oli? Give your parents a break!

Love the card... although I am a little offended you copied our super-cool design. :)

Very cute card, Cheyenne! 2008 was the first year that I did not do a card (for many reasons beyond my control), and I HATE that I couldn't do it. LOL. Either way. Love the card you did. Ellen is adorable!

So fun!!! I'm totally doing this next year! Did you create your own front in PS or did you use like a template created by WHCC?
