A Trip Down Memory Lane

As I am getting ready to send out Christmas cards, I thought it would be fun to look at cards from past years.  It was so much fun to look at the cards.  The first card captures Charlie and I with our pets...NOT KIDS!  That is shocking in itself.  We looked so carefree, young, rested... :) I scanned each card which unfortunately altered the color of the pictures.  I did not take the time to be a perfectionist and edit them back to their original look.  So, don't look to closely! :) Oh, and if anyone happens to still have our card from 2006 could you please give it back.  It is the only one missing from the last 10 years.  If you don't still have it, my feelings are forever hurt by the fact you did not hold onto it and treasure it...keeping it on your fridge until the end of time (okay, just kidding). :)
Like I said, so young, carefree, rested.  Maggie (our cat) is now 14 and Beau Beau (our dog) passed away in September.    

The birth of our first child, also the year it snowed on Christmas Eve.  This was also the first time I decided to refer to our family as "The Moench Bunch", it is definitely stuck!

So sweet, melts my heart.

2006....Missing, missing, missing.  I don't even remember what it looked like!

Trying to get these pictures was like running a marathon.  I remember we were all sweaty by the time it was over.

The two cutest little guys I know.

Seriously, could his hair be any whiter!  This was our last picture as a family of four. :)

Finally!  Someone who could wear a bow!!!

Our happy little three!

Last year's picture was one of panic on my part.  I drug my feet on getting the pictures and cards done until the last second.  Come on kids, stand here and act like you love each other.  Never mind that your hair is not combed and your clothes are dirty!  :)

I had so much fun looking at these cards.  My how the years have flown by.  I love sending and receiving Christmas cards.  It is one of my most favorite Christmas traditions.
