Apostrophe or no apostrophe?

I want to make Christmas cards say "Love, the Wilsons."  Is that correct or should it be "Love, the Wilson's?"  (The last name is Wilson)

Thanks

Adding "s" (or "es") makes a noun plural. Adding an apostrophe + "s" makes a noun possessive. Apostrophe + "s" never makes a noun plural.

 

Wilsons not Wilson's.
