You know you're past the "newlywed phase" when you ask for and receive practical gifts for Christmas/birthdays/celebrations. This year it was a new wireless scanner/copier/fax/printer and a docking station/alarm clock for my iPad and iPhone (I'm way too connected to the Internet world, I know). So now that I have a working scanner, I'll be able to share things more easily with all of you! The first of those things I'd love to share is our Christmas card. If I had the means to do so, I would send each and every one of you a card since I consider everyone who reads my blog a friend. But until cards and postage are free, or I win the lottery (!), that won't be happening. So the next best thing is to share it virtually!!
The text on the back of the card says,
"2011 has been a monumental year in the Schwartz household! The beginning of the year brought the birth of our first child, Stephen Charles. He is a true miracle and has taught us that the most important things in life are family, friends, health, and love. He is a special gift and continues to amaze us each and every day and we are so blessed to be his parents. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the thoughts, prayers, and well wishes we've received over the past year and to all the doctors and nurses who have so lovingly cared for Stephen. We want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2012!"
