Our anniversary is in February and we decided on a Valentine's cruise to renew our vows for our fifteenth. Several members of our family and our best friends came with us. Memories of Christmas hadn't yet totally faded and I got it into my head that it would be great if we could send out Christmas cards with us in Santa Hats and swimsuits so a pair of hats were packed.
This is the result. We never did have the cards made up.
Our oldest took a turn with the hat for a photo op too but never had the picture made into a card either.
Our friends had to also have their turn with the hats. They did use the photo for their Christmas cards that year!
Now when we travel with these friends the Santa hats have become a tradition. Here are the three of us in Jamaica a couple of years later.
We'll be sure to have some Santa hats on hand at our new place for our dear friends or anyone else that wants to join us for some silliness.
