Merry Christmas from Our Family to Yours!

I finally ordered our family Christmas cards.  Yeah, it’s a little late- should be here by the 14th, which means my friends and family might get them by Christmas if I get them addressed and in the mail in time:)

I couldn’t decide if I was going to splurge on the Tiny Prints photo cards, do a less expensive Walgreens version, or buy regular cards and possibly put a photo inside?? Decisions, decisions.  Then I recalled the cute family photo we took earlier this year and I knew it had to be the one for our cards.  I went with the Tiny Prints card below.

I added the (1) after James’ name after receiving some cards where the sender did that- I thought it was a good idea so you could reference how old the children are in the photo.  Looking back, it might be hard to remember.

My other favorites are below.  Isn’t it cool how you can customize the card and preview it to see which one is your favorite?

I really liked the “Spread Holiday Cheer” but James’ foot got cut off and I didn’t want to have to keep resizing.

And below, his head and feet were cut off.  I’m sure I could’ve fixed it, but I really like the one we ended up choosing- so festive.  You really can’t go wrong, can you?!

    I have a big stack of cards screaming my name right now, but they will have to wait for the moment. 😉 Yours are adorable, and how can you go wrong with a design with such a cutie pie photo? I find myself agonizing over all of the designs out there before finally committing to one!!

    It's beautiful-he is just the cutest! Great idea to put his age. We always have the year on ours so that helps 🙂

    Love the card you chose! I am lucky in that our oldest can now design ours with her new software…bless her heart, working on them while finishing college and working her new job.

    That photo is gorgeous!! I am sending about 30 cards – got 1/2 way through writing and addressing them last night, hope to finish tonight!

    SO precious! I love that picture. Definitely doing cards! Christmas cards are one of my favorite parts of the season!

    Oh, your cards are beautiful. Love the design you picked, but of course James steals the show! 🙂 I think that's a wonderful idea to put the age of the child. We are doing Christmas cards for the first time! I have them designed, just need to get them printed, addressed and mailed…okay so a lot to do still to get them out. hah

    I love your cards! He is so adorable! Sadly, we aren't doing Christmas cards this year…I'm thinking when we have kids it will be more special to do them each year 🙂

    Great picture! James looks so cute! I am doing cards but have yet to mail them. I just ordered pictures, I like to do the old school kind where you paste a picture. Hope to mail them by next Monday. Love your choice!

    So cute! I just ordered ours last night from Tiny Prints as well. I had your first and third choices on my favorites list, then went with another that was bright and cheery as well! Mine should arrive by the 16th! Oh well! Better late than never!

    Adorable photo. Love the photos that have a 'hint' of the parents, but with the child as the star. I spend FOREVER trying out card possibilities this year!

    Super cute!! 🙂 Love all the different designs. 🙂 I did the Shutterfly blogger thing this year and picked out some cute cards through them.

    Megan that is an adorable Christmas card! How cute James is and what a smile he will put on everyone's face when your family and friends open your card. I just got our cards today. I love sending them out! I do it every year.

    Oh I love them all! So darn cute!

    I LOVE to give and receive Christmas cards! And I love that yours says Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays. It is a tedious task to address, stamp and close them, but I always think they are worth it!

  22. December 12, 2011 / 7:24 pm

    Cute card! I send out like 120 cards–I love Christmas! 🙂

    BTW–check out my site as I passed on an award to you!

    Oh, he is such a cutie pie. I love the picture. You do such a great job selecting cute photos of him.

    My favorite is still last year-I loved the be merry, be jolly…priceless!
