National Finals Rodeo 2012

In our family, it ain’t Christmas without attending the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.  We look forward to it all year!  It’s our chance to combine “country”, Christmas, and Vegas.  Honestly, it couldn’t be a more perfect combination.  This year, John was already in Las Vegas for work so Charlotte and I joined him for the weekend to hit up the rodeo! Like usual, we were not disappointed.  It is one of those nights when you’re truly proud to be an American.  Oh and Charlotte was just super excited to be in Las Vegas for the first time.  We had such a fun weekend and were sad to leave but now the Mellors are officially ready for Christmas.

Merry Christmas Y’all

ChristmasCard Final

‘Tis the season to be grateful.  What a wonderful time of year to reflect and share with others.  This year, we have so much to be grateful for with the birth of our first child and all the health and happiness we’ve been able to enjoy.  As a new father, John may feel a little protective of “his girls” which was sort of our inspiration for this year’s Christmas card.  I’m so happy John is fulfilling his duties but once Charlotte turns 16, I might need someone to help him loosen his grip.

We love this time of year and love being able to create something to share with others.  It is all the more special with the addition of Charlotte to our family.  We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and let us know if you’ve spotted any unruly elves or reindeer.  John is definitely on the lookout around our place.   We have a few other shots we wanted to share below.  Until next year…
