Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. During the holiday season, I love to send Christmas cards to my family and friends. My husband says that I send too many out. I don’t agree with him. Christmas cards are my way of letting everyone know that I am thinking about them during the holiday season. Since we started a family, they are also my way of showing family and friends, who don't get to see them, how much the girls have grown in the last year. I also love getting Christmas cards from these same people. It’s always a good time to open a card and see how much families have changed over the last year.
When a sorority sister and friend blogged that Shutterfly is giving 50 free Christmas cards to bloggers, I emailed her for the details. I had recently received their mailer, about Christmas cards and Christmas gift ideas, and was already thinking about what I would like to do this year. We had a family photo taken on Thanksgiving to use with our cards this year even before this, so I'm excited.
Here are my favorite Christmas cards in no particular order:
I’m also considering photo books as gifts for the grandparents this year as well as making a calendar for my husband. He really liked that idea, now to figure out a style to use and the pictures to go in it.
