2018 Christmas cards

Look at me! I got it together this year to send out Christmas cards! I mean, not as many as I would have liked, but better than last year, anyway. (Which is to say, more than zero.)

It helps that we had a good family picture from the cruise, and when I stumbled upon the most perfect card (because ITMWTOTY is my favorite Christmas song ever) I ordered them immediately.

Well, I am not going to post a picture of the back where I put the boys’ names in the wrong order. MY BAD.

2017 Holiday cards, virtual edition

I really have no excuse, but I just didn’t get it together in time to order nice photo cards for the holidays. Well, I nearly did, but then CVS screwed them up, and I didn’t have it in me to try again, and they’d have barely been here in time to mail, so I just bought some cute old-school cards, had some photos printed, and put them inside, just like in the olden days. (And I only sent out like six, but I’d have sent out a bunch more if I’d gotten photo cards.)

Anyway, so then I decided since I’m not actually buying the cards, I can go on the card websites I like and fantasize about the cards I would order! And heck, since I’m not actually buying them, I’m going all out with fancy corners!

Oh of course, I have to have this one.

But these are cute too:

That’s cute. I came really close to ordering that one.

Since we’re fantasizing, I’m going FULL GLITTER.

Or, why not scalloped edges?

So, there you have it. Your choice of holiday cards to print out and stick to your fridge.

Special thanks to the Hawkins for the amazing Christmas jumpers they gave the boys last year when we visited!

Merry Christmas 2015

My cards this year were such a debacle, I hardly ended up sending any out. Hopefully next year I’ll do better.
