The Seawrights normally go over the top with their Christmas card, but this year, they kept it simple, using a photo taken in their backyard of them holding up handmade signs.

The California family’s card features words beginning with the letter “E” to describe where each person is in their life right now: Excited, Engaged, Expecting, and Emily.

The hilarious sign highlights the fact that one daughter, Emily, is single.

Diane Seawright, the mother, told ABC News:

“My daughter came up with it and we thought it’d be funny, We have so much going on our lives as you can tell by our signs that we were just too busy to think of something else. Reluctantly, we all took part in the signs and here we are.”

The protective mother pointed out Emily is “happy being single.” She added:

“She just has a great sense of humor. I don’t want people to think we’re this cold family that threw our daughter on the side.”

Emily’s Twitter post went viral in two days, grabbing nearly 285,000 likes and 46,000 retweets.
