The One with Planning Our 2011 Christmas Card


Wednesday, December 7, 2011

This year will be our third Christmas card! They might go out a little late, but better late than never! Here's the pic from our last two Christmas cards:

Christmas 2009. Joey was our baby.

Which brings us to Christmas 2011. No photo yet! Our photoshoot is on Saturday with the uber talented Megan Papworth. It's happening, rain or shine, with or without Chris (whose finals and patient schedule keep gettin' in the way!) I'm so excited about getting our pictures taken together as a family professionally. It's been over a year!

And then there's the matter of picking a Christmas card... Do I go the pre-made route? Here are some of my favorites from tinyprints.com:

Pre-made Christmas cards aren't super cheap. So do I design my own and get them printed at Costco? I could probably easily replicate or use any of these as inspiration... Or if I want to be really ambitious I could make Christmas cards from scratch using scrapbooking supplies... Those would be free cuz I already have all the supplies, but it would require lots of precious time. Lots to think over, so stay tuned!
