Holiday Card Series 9


And here we finally have 2010... Fritz's first Christmas and holiday card! The inside message says, "Kipper got hers early (Fritz)!!!" That's it for the Holiday Card Series. Hopefully you enjoyed it. ;) I wonder what mum will come up with for next year?

Holiday Card Series 8


2009's card contains mum's favorite picture of me. That explains why it's used as my profile shot. I'm super smiley because a.) I'm in the car and b.) we were heading to a barbecue — those are two of my favorite things in the world! The inside message of this one says, "Hope your holidays are filled with smiles!"

Holiday Card Series 7


In 2008, I was all alone. Fortunately, mum decided to carry on her tradition by continuing to make her own holiday cards... although it was hard this particular year. The inside message says, "Happy Holidays... May you go places in 2009!"

Holiday Card Series 6


This is the card from 2007... the last one that featured Bailey. He passed away a few days after Christmas that year. :*( Mum wasn't sure if she'd ever be able to design another holiday card again since he was pictured on them from the very beginning in the year 2000. The inside message on this one says, "Holiday wishes around the globe..."

Holiday Card Series 4


This was 2005's card. The inside message says, "Hope your holidays are warm and fuzzy." Mum liked this design so much, she created gift packaging based on it!

Holiday Card Series 3



Here is 2004's creation. The inside is shown, so this one is pretty self-explanatory. ;)

Holiday Card Series 2


Here is what mum came up with in 2003. Even though we're bundled up in our sweaters, you can tell I still hadn't gotten used to the New England winters yet. I kept telling myself to think warm thoughts — that never works! Anyway, the message inside this card says, "Wishing you peace and happiness throughout the new year."

Holiday Card Series 1


My mum has been designing her own holiday cards for the past eleven consecutive years now. I figured I'd share all of the ones that feature me, which is most of them. I know, I know... it's hard to believe I've been around for so long since I still look and act like a spring chicken, ;) Anyway, here is the one she made in 2002 — my first Christmas away from Puerto Rico. That handsome fellow on the right is my late brother, Bailey. He passed away at the age of 15 1/2 right after Christmas of 2007. :( As you'll see, that hasn't stopped mum from carrying on her card tradition. The inside message of this one says: "Warmest Wishes this Holiday Season and Throughout the New Year."
