Merry Christmas! (2018)

posted by Andrea | 12/24/2018

It’s that time of year again — when I take a little time away from my computer to enjoy a change of pace with everyone home from school. 

We have no big plans for Christmas break, but Dave and the kids get 2 full weeks off this year — yippee!

We hope you and your family have an enjoyable Christmas time, celebrating (or not celebrating) in whatever way you choose.

I’ll “see” you back here again on New Year’s Day!.

Until then, here is our family’s 2018 Christmas Card!

Merry Christmas!

From the Dekker family!

    Thanks Susan,
    I custom-design all my own cards and then print them as a postcard through VistaPrint.
    Here’s the post I wrote about it: https://andreadekker.com/james-birth-announcement/

    I’ve made my own Christmas cards, baby birth announcements, “we’ve moved” updates, etc. for the past 10-12 years!
