Our Christmas Card

A Few of Our Favorite Things
2007

Diapers all stacked up and preschool a plenty
Football on Mondays, guitar at six twenty
Two months in Antigua, but home for the Spring
These are a few of our favorite things.

Ballet and Cub Scouts and Allstars and soccer
Glasses for Coleman and Soli’s a walker!
Evie is five soon, I love when she sings
These are a few of our favorite things.

Laundry and dishes and warm bubble bath-es
Wet sloppy kisses and cho-co-late stashes
Knowing the joy that raising kids brings
These are a few of our favorite things.

Coleman is ten, seems so young yet so grown
Went with his dad and they hiked up Half Dome
Hoping we will be prepared for the “Teens”
These are a few of our favorite things.

Emerson’s seven and keeps us all smilin’
His heart’s made of gold and his hair’s always stylin’
He’s playing the guitar, just reaching the strings
These are a few of our favorite things.

Evie loves rainbows and drawing and soccer.
She’ll tell you about it, ‘cause she’s quite the talker.
She loves playing dress-up with purses and rings
These are a few of our favorite things.

Soli is one, she’s been with us a year now.
Time sure does fly, it’s amazing to see how…
Much our love’s grown and our hearts have new wings
These are a few of our favorite things.

We hope this card finds you enjoying the season
Come see us soon, for any ol’ reason.
Blessings to you, the peace Christmas brings
‘Cause you’re all a few of our favorite things!

Wishing you all our best in 2008,
The Stewart Family

I absolutely love this card! What a neat idea. I can't believe we are nearly in April! Wow time does fly. Stop on by for a glimpse of Mr. Beckett.
