|not the sort of card you get from us...|
Ben and I started a tradition of sending "non-traditional" aka bizarre Christmas cards the year I was pregnant with Juliet. (Think urban rapper theme/pregnant lady in a mini skirt) It was just supposed to be a one-time thing--but our friends and family loved it so much that there is a lot of hype about our cards every year.
We are constantly asked, "Do you have a good idea for this year's card?!!!" And usually, we DON'T. But we pretend we do. And somehow at the last minute, come up with something that ends up making everyone laugh.
I know, I know, why write about this if I am not going to show you any of the pics? (We don't mind embarrassing ourselves in front of our friends, but we have to draw the line at embarrassing ourselves on the internet.) Because no matter what theme we go with, we always make use of a card-generating service like Shutterfly. We take the crazy picture, upload it to Shutterfly, and send in our order. It's easy. And I like easy.
photo card? Sometimes I type up a little summary of our year and include it in the envelope with the picture, but this would eliminate the need for that step! You can just type in your top ten moments directly into the card!
New Year's Card after all! Look how modern and colorful this is!
