Mailbox Cheer


Our Christmas cards finally are out... it took me forever to decide which pictures to use! There's just too many cute ones of Georgia! Actually- I'll confess- I tried to do a picture with Bernie the basset hound, and Georgia together... not such a good idea! Bernie thought it was a game, and even when I tried to bribe him with cookies, he spent the whole time sniffing my pockets or drooling on Georgia, waiting for the cookie. Then Georgia got mad I was making her sit still, and that Bernie kept jumping around and drooling on her. Plus, it was in the middle of the heat wave we had last week, and I had her dressed in thick snowflake tights and a Christmas dress in the backyard! Sooo, we scrapped that plan and went with a cute picture previously taken (above)! Here's a few you WON"T see on our card...

Please sit together and smile this way!


This one will make my mom cringe, but I just think it's so cute when she cries like this!


I tried to bribe her with my watch, but she just wanted to eat it... not cute.


I love this one- those big blues! This was our runner-up.


I love Christmas cards. I love sending them and I love getting them every year. Larry bah-humbugs and says they're a scheme from Hallmark, but I ignore him! He still enjoys getting them. As someone who is very bad at keeping in touch, I love the chance to reconnect, even thru a simple "Merry Christmas, love Us". Especially this year, with so many of our friends having had babies. I love those picture cards- we are some proud mamas and papas!
I hope you are enjoying this holiday time, and the sweet Christmas cheer coming to your mailbox. If ours did not reach you, I apologize, and please consider this your own personal
Merry Christmas from The Hipps!!

Stop making that baby cry!! Georgia, hurry down to Fla and Grammie will fix anything that's making you cry! Actually, I may cringe, but I do know babies need to cry some...but I agree with the Phelps that since Georgia is always so happy and takes great pictures, it just doesn't seem right!We're really excited to get to share her 1st Christmas and can hardly wait until Friday night when you arrive!! Hugs!!
