Merry Christmas from the Mack Family!

You probably have already noticed how young the girls look in our Christmas photo this year.  We had decided over a year ago, that when Kathy’s mom passed away, we would honor her on our Christmas card, since Christmas was her favorite holiday, and many celebrations were spent with our family prior to her stroke in 2005.  Doris Mullen went home to be with her Savior on July 21.  She got to see all of Kathy and Cindy’s families before her final breath.  Amy and Wendy were at her side when she left us.  We are all blessed to have been able to call her Mom or Grandma.  She left an indelible mark on all of us, for which we will always be grateful.  We are even more blessed to know that we will see her again in eternity.

The Final ProductEvery year, we love to create clever themed Christmas cards to send to our friends and family.  Each year has been a bit of a challenge to create, but this year's card posed some unique problems.  Namely, the theme was of the four Mack girls posing in a gingerbread house in a winter wonderland.  The problem?  We now live in Santa Clarita where it doesn't snow...ever.

Behind the scenesSince giant gingerbread houses are in short supply at this time of year, we built our own out of wood and thick cardboard.  We designed special candies for the front of the house out of tissue paper and colored cling wrap and spray painted the house to look more authentic.  On a bright, windy day, the four of us carried the house into the backyard and posed in front of our palm tree (not very Christmassy, right?)
