Christmas Card!

can you believe it's already time to unveil our annual Christmas card picture!?!?!?!?!
I can't!
where has 2016 gone?

Well like I have said many times I spend months brainstorming up ideas for our Christmas card and I had one in mind but then out of the corner of my eye on my way home from a photo session I spotted in our neighbors garbage was this antique school desk!!!!!!!! 
my heart stopped
I HAD to have it!
Brian shook his head and said "what? why? where? no! do we have to?"
I ignored his negativeness. I knew this was a once in a lifetime chance and if I passed it up I would regret it the rest of my life!
so the little weak women I am marched across the street and picked that bad boy right up and carried it up the steps and into my home.
I am not ashamed one bit!!
then I rubbed it in Brian's face a few minutes later when I showed him how much people are selling exact replicas of this beauty on eBay and he zipped his lip up fast.

long story

so my Christmas card plans changed and I couldn't be happier!
without further ado

A 2nd letter to Hazel

Dear Hazel,

you are so simple but so complex at the same time. You keep me on my toes but I know if I tell you not to do something you will listen. You are calm but fierce. You are quite but stand up for yourself when needed. You are girly but love to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. you are loving but always on guard. you are not a show off but know every trick. you are a mama's girl but want to be just like Daddy. You are helpful but think it's fun to make a mess.
 Watching that brain of yours figure things out and put the pieces together is in my top favorite things to do. you are so determined. absolutely nothing gets in your way when you have an idea. you are fearless. you are a born to be leader.
 My life would be so boring without you.
 you have Julia's spit fire attitude
Belle's caring heart
Stella's sweetness
and yet you are completely you.
 you have a passion for working.
I know it sounds crazy! I never knew another 2 year old that just wants to work.
 cleaning, fixing, helping
you never stop. you don't even have a favorite cartoon because you never really take a break from activities to sit and watch a show or two. But your not hyper, just enjoy being busy.
 you don't get overly excited but you are a very happy girl.
those big blue eyes still stops me in my tracks!
Happy 2nd birthday
I love you Hazelnut.
  Daddy's Winnie. 
Hazel Gwendolyn
