It’s December 2–Is anyone else gearing up for Christmas cards? Has anyone already received any? (That would be REALLY impressive…yeesh!) Back in October, I admitted that I was brainstorming. And then when I got new pajamas for my birthday, I knew I wanted our card to take a turn for the cozy. Picture this: Chris, Greta and I all curled up in bed with our jammies on. Smiling, because we are so happy to be a family and so excited for Christmas. *Click!* Brandon’s camera captures the whole thing and we have our Marcum Christmas card…the first as a family of 3.
Last Christmas, when we were just 2, we didn’t take a “Christmas picture” we just used a snapshot from Cam and Kasey’s wedding and added an appropriate caption to the bottom:
Cute, even a little witty…but definitely homemade. This year, I have already been eyeing cards on Shutterfly. They have a ton of Christmas photo card options. At the top of my list:
And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, or maybe a lot of your friends and/or family don’t–but you still want to spread some cheer, they got you covered in that department
You’re smiling, aren’t you? If a bright blue snowflake doesn’t scream your family’s name, how about this one?
I don’t think it gets classier than a monogrammed Holiday Card.
So now that I have myself drooling over stationary–again
–I should really get focused on what photo is going to grace one of these beauties. As Greta reported yesterday
, she wasn’t super cooperative in our first photo shoot. The picture of the gitty and cozy family of three didn’t exactly turn out as I described in paragraph one:
captured one of us all
(ahem..Greta) smiling and “happy to be a family.” If not, we’ll take some more pictures, and if all else fails–we can take advantage of Shutterfly’s other holiday
…holding out for the gold glitter may be worth it.
