I’d Like to See Your Card Please

Do you skip to your mailbox with extra pep in your step during the holidays?

We all know that it’s not because of that double espresso mocha latte you had.  It’s because there might be something worth seeing in that box of yours!  It’s Christmas card season and boy, we are all more excited than a nutcracker in a pecan farm.  And that’s excited.

I thought it was time to virtually send you all a Christmas card – but first…a recap of our cards over the years….beginning with 2009’s silhouette black-n-white card….

That was the year I was pregnant with Will.  I can still make myself look that preggo thanks to some lingering ab separation and a wicked strong diaphragm.

The following year – 2010 made us very merry because we had the cutest face ever to include in our cards.  Will took over and we even made an alternate just in case we changed our minds.

2011 was picture-themed and we included lots of snapshots throughout our year.

We made another more traditional version too….and I do believe there was a booger on Will’s finger.  A traditional booger of course.

We welcomed little Weston in 2012 and went with a rainbow of colors and more youthful fonts in the card to reflect our colorful lives and youthful babies (that are young and full of youth).

Last year we didn’t take any great holiday photos so instead we chose some of the ones taken at the beach!  Since we were expecting LJ, we also included a belly shot….

This year I was a little more prepared with our seasonally appropriate pictures.  We tried out Shutterfly (because our addresses of our recipients were already loaded) and Tiny Prints (because I had a coupon) and came up with a slew of options.  I would create the cards and Jeremy got to pick.

In the end, we went with something that took us full circle again – mixing the script and bold fonts and adding a little black-n-white-n-red for a nod to the Christmas cards of the past.  It’s a version available through Tiny Prints and we have them send out the cards directly (it costs a little extra but our time is limited and this way we know that it is not going to be delivered around Valentines day).

So now I need to see your cards!  If you have a blog post/picture sharing account/instagram account showing them off, leave a link in the post so that I can check them out!  And if you just want to share any extras cards you have this year – I am sure that the boys would LOVE to see all the friends we have around the world.  Here is our PO Box for you:
