Beyer Family Christmas Card 2015

Instead of purchasing cards, we decided it would be more personal to have cards made to send to our family and friends. We did a photo shoot (My wife, son and I), and had a great time. As you can see, my son loves the camera, and is a natural. He was the real star of this shoot. Hope you guys enjoy. And Merry Christmas!

Star Wars isn’t new. In the late 1970s, the world was introduced to the fantastical galaxy of the future created George Lucas, in which humans, robots and other forms of life coexist, sometimes in harmony but most times not, as the title suggests. Still, with its most recent release, The Force Awakens, the famous franchise is gaining even greater popularity with old and new fans. Undeniably the biggest film of the last year, The Force Awakens continues to break records, having already made 2015 the highest ever box office to date, and tracking to shatter a previous record established by the film Avatar as the highest grossing film in American and Canadian history.

Because of its popularity, everyone from Subway to Covergirl has joined the force, bolstering the film and certainly benefiting from its acclaim in the process. The gaming world is on board, too. Celebrating the release of the Force Awakens, Star Wars game developers have updated content to reflect new characters and plot lines.
