Christmas Cards

Growing up, and even now, one of my favorite things about the holiday season is getting Christmas cards.  Kyle and I don't get many at our house, but going home to California is so fun because I get to check out all the cards Mom got.  She keeps all the pictures on the fridge and all the letters on a table in the living room for us to read.  Christy usually writes the card for our family because Mom is so busy.  The Anderson family only sends out cards when we have an especially good family picture from that year. So we haven't sent one out since my wedding :)

Now that we have a baby, Kyle and I feel like a real family.  What do real families do?  Send out Christmas cards of course!  It seems so adult and stable and awesome.  We've never sent them out before because it's awkward with just the two of us.  Shutterfly is doing a promo where bloggers get 50 free Christmas cards!  I am going to let it double as a birth announcement too.  They have approximately ONE MILLION cute card options, so it is going to be fun to find my favorite and pick a picture and whatnot.  Designing it might take forever...I better get on that.

(Also, I have never once thought about sending out a Valentines Day card, but these are so cute! I'm tempted.)

(Oh man, I just saw that they actually have Christmas birth announcements...perfect.)

Hey, I wrote a million years of Christmas card letters before Christy took over the job. And we sent letters without photos. I did skip a year here and there--and last year was a disaster but that was totally Danny's fault! Wait--but I sent out cards anyway! You guys maybe need to make us a great card on Shutterfly since both you and Christy are looking there!

I wanted to do that, but I reeeaally don't want picture Christmas cards. I can't wait for yours!!!

Oh, I don't want picture cards because it'd be sad. It'd just be meeeee on there, and um, I don't need more reminders that I'm single.

I just ordered mine. The cards alone should have been $119, but I just paid $8 shipping. EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS.

I took a cute picture of Timothy with a pumpkin and sent it to our family for Halloween. The grandparents loved it! Hooray that babies are so photogenic!
