Christmas Card 2013 - Our Band of Buccaneers

I am sure you are like me and don't mind
getting a few cards in the mail after 
Actually, sometimes I enjoy them more as
I feel so rushed during Christmas.

This is our family's Christmas card this
year.  As I look back, we are more often
than not in costume, because I got them all
together for some occasion!

This was taken in May at our 
34th Wedding Anniversary 
get together at Pirate's Cove.
Click here to see a post on that.
We were missing just one little granddaughter
and I bought her a costume and wanted
to take a photo and photoshop her in, but
she refused.  She doesn't like her picture
taken (at 3 1/2!).

So from our little band of Buccaneers to yours -
a very Merry Christmas!

Yo Ho Yo Ho A Family Life for Me!

We still send out a card each
year and always with a photo.
I love cards with a photo
especially from my friends
that live far away.

My dad's cousin's wife (who I
consider an aunt) lives in Connecticut
and she told me that people
asked who this card was from and 
she said, "That's from my husband's
side!  I'm not related to that bunch
of crazies!"  I laughed and told
her she wished she was!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. That's such a fun pic Jacqueline! Looks like everyone had a blast:@)

  2. Hilarious! I would much rather belong to the crazy side any day!

  3. I love it ans agree that getting cars after the day is nice, you can really reflect on them. I save all mine in a basket and try to go through them after it is all January.

  4. A fun card and I'll bet you love looking over the past year's ones.
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family Jacqueline.

  5. I'd be a part of the crazies any day! Looks like such fun ~


  6. I'd be a part of the crazies any day! Looks like such fun ~


  7. Love your photo Christmas card. I think photo cards are so personal and take some effort. How fun to have you all together, minus one
    granddaughter. It's a shame she doesn't want her photo taken. Looks like fun to me. Happy New Year! Hugs, Linda
