The majority of our holiday cards and packages have been mailed, if you have not received yours yet it is on it's way, so we wanted to share the story behind our holiday card theme. My favorite reality show is Deadliest Catch. My favorite boats are the Northwestern and the Cornelia Marie. Last year for Halloween I built a crab boat fishing set complete with an actual crab pot for our annual Halloween picture in honor of my favorite show. I called our boat the Southeastern. I got one photo shoot completed, during which I usually complete my test run and adjust the set as needed, but then Lucie got sick right before Halloween and I lost all focus on finishing the photo. During the worst part of Lucie's illness, Captain Phil Harris from the Cornelia Marie had a stroke and we were heart broken when he lost his good fight in February.
Last month when I started thinking about my holiday picture for this year, my husband recommended that I dust off my crab boat pictures and use one of them. He said it was a shame to let all that hard work go to waste. He is my biggest supporter! Thank you Ron! I love you! Being the perfectionist that I am, it was hard to use a picture that is not 100% spot on, but I pushed those thoughts aside, worked a little magic in photo shop and picnik and our holiday picture was created.
A Wonderful Holiday Event!
