Christmas 2011 was our first Christmas as married people. So we had to get a real tree. And the day before we left for the holidays I decided we should take a picture and send out a Christmas card. We made it as far as the picture (which believe me was no small feet. We had to prop up the camera on a creative but makeshift "tripod", figure out lighting with my not so impressive point and shoot, and find a way to incorporate props for all we've accomplished this year . . . without looking tooo corny).
so . . . here it is. You'll have to hunt a little to find the following props:
Stethoscope: Sam started and finished his first semester of Med School at Rocky Vista University.
Birds: Topper for our wedding cake. We had the most amazing and perfect wedding in April.
Ski Passes: Sam was on ski patrol at The Canyons for the winter and I skiied powder for the first time!
Brown Tassle: I graduated from BYU in April (and really miss it). We figured this can also represent my final show since it didn't exactly work out to put a painting in the tree . . .
It was a good year! We love being married. We love Colorado. We love Med School. We love our ward. We love our apartment. And we love each other.
