In my family, the talk of the Christmas card picture for my parents' card starts in the summer. My parents like to have all of us in the picture. We all want it done in the summer when we are tan, but either we are not all together or are too busy or this year it was because my sister had a baby in September. So it will be another picture of us at Thanksgiving looking not so tan and bundled up. Maybe it's better that we don't show too much skin.
My Christmas card is usually made of a bunch of pictures because I take so many throughout the year. It's the letter, poem, song that takes me awhile.
If you watch Better With You, (and you should, it's FUNNY) they had an episode on Christmas cards that was hysterical. They had 3 classifications of cards, "the bowl", "the fridge" and "the mantel". The best went on the mantel and the blahs went into the bowl on the table.
I know how your Christmas cards can be mantel cards! Shutterfly has some beautiful cards this year! (Well they do every year, just ask my family because we've used them.) They also have cards where a percentage goes to a charity like LIVESTRONG, the American Lung Association and Heifer International. My favorites for this year are: Many Memories Tree, Live Love Laugh and Charming Little Trees. Now it will come down to what pictures to pick.
Shutterfly also has Hanukkah cards, New Year's Day or invitation cards and if you are really on the ball, Thanksgiving cards. The best is that you can pick a card for just one picture or if you are snap happy like me, many pictures.
