The Christmas Yearbook

One of my favorite Proffitt Christmas traditions is the Family Yearbook. Every year, each family submits a page that sums up their year. And every year, the bar gets raised higher as each family gets more and more creative. It's gotten to the point that everyone gripes about having to submit a page because every single fun and clever thing has been done already- from comic strips to crossword puzzles to I Spy pages.

With 11 talented families and many years running, there's not a lot of room left to be original. But despite all the complaining and occasional talk of abandoning the tradition all together, everyone usually pulls through and submits a page. And I'm so glad they do, because I really love this tradition. I married into one seriously accomplished and witty family. I'm looking forward to reading their pages almost as much as Booker is looking forward to Christmas morning.

And now I'm going to totally break tradition and reveal my Christmas page early. My friend Carly sent a little quiz about her family with her Christmas card this year and I liked her idea so much that I copied it. Thanks Carly! And a big thank you to my friend Cherise (and her amazing ability to find cool old trucks) for our family photos which I love love love.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

very cute, margaret. but i think the pressure of having to come up with a new creative idea would really put a damper on my christmas spirit! :)

I'm so glad you liked the idea. I like your scoring system much better than the way I did it.
