Since the husband was my husband, we’ve been doing Christmas cards. And while it started out as an accident, our first Christmas card we used a picture that seems to depict our first year. Since then, we’ve made a point to create a picture each year. We’ve had a lot of fun coming up with different themes and pictures each year, although it is a bit of pressure….
When it comes to printing our Christmas cards, over the years I’ve used a variety of business – from a small family-owned business, to Shutterfly and Tiny Prints, to Minted – who I used this year. The thing to love about Minted is that they will address the cards for you – free of charge. Plus they partner with all kinds of artists on the designs of their cards (and more). AND, in case you haven’t created a card yet but want too, holiday cards and New Years card are just as fun to get in the mail.
This year, we put Breck into a costume we bought for Ajax a few cards ago (when we did a Naughty or Nice theme – and yes, we did TWO cards but only sent one to a family). As they normally do, they drove their tractor to the mail box to send out our Christmas cards. I couldn’t resist taking photos because OM DO YOU SEE MY KIDDOS?!!
Plus, there is a photo here that shows just how mischievous my little elves really are…
