Submitted for Best Christmas Card of all time.
Greetings (your name)!
What an amazing year it has been and it’s almost over, in case you don’t understand how a calendar works. How quickly time passes especially when our family is busy doing amazing things, a few of which we will embellish to inspire and warm your hearts. After all, this is the giving season.
It’s hard to believe that it was only January when Josh quit his professional career to pursue his musical dream of playing back-up keyboard for a Styx Tribute Band. His semi-star success on Tuesday and Thursday nights has been an amazing transformation to witness. When Josh isn’t playing at packed American Legions or obsessively grooming his hair, he is on the road as a pageant dad, coaching Lucy to international stardom.
Sarah has decided to go from a full-time mom and pursue her dream by becoming a part-time mom.
As many of you know, Lucy has been raised to pageant pedigree and ever since joining the pageantry circuit last year, she has been sweeping every competition and currently holds three international Ultimate Dream Queen titles, eight national Grand Supreme Queen titles, five Mini Supreme titles also including America’s Grand Miss National 2011-12 Champion and was recently titled Miss Christmas Crystal Cutie 2012 by a board of very famous judges. Obviously, we’re afraid her obsession with self-image will go to her head, so we encourage her to give back to the community through public speaking engagements focusing on the health benefits of toddler self-tanning and teeth whitening. Aside from receiving many prestigious awards and attending ceremonies in her name, we also encourage Lucy to attend public community events for signing autographs for self promotion.
Another amazing event this year was the birth and family addition of Jack in September. Not to be outdone by his sister, he is already the youngest performer at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas Resort Casino and has opened up for the Blue Man Group, twice. Last month, Justin Bieber commented on his Facebook status which was the critical event needed to launch his career. He has been named America’s Hottest Music and Dance Act of 2012 by the American Committee of Music and Dance and is planning to release his first EP, titled “Baba” on Def Jam recordings in early 2013.
In closing, our family has had a very busy year doing many amazing things, too many to list here and we want to thank you for your support. Please know that you have been an important part of our year, (your name), and this Christmas season we hope to cast a shining light of inspiration for other families to follow distantly in our footsteps.
