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)

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.
