Last year, with the baby and all the stress of going back to
work after maternity leave, Christmas cards just didn't happen for
our family (instead we did the second best alternative, Valentine's
Day cards!). We have friends and relatives so far and so wide,
though, that I really do like to share a picture of the kids and a
little reminder that even though we're far away, we do indeed think
of all our out-of-state and overseas dear ones at Christmastime.
Shutterfly asked me to review some of their new Christmas cards
and I picked a few that I'd like to use this year:
I like the Peace, Love, Joy theme of this one
it gives me the opportunity to upload a five good pics from
throughout the year.
But, and this is a big BUT (lol) and a big IF...If I can get the
kids to sit still together and both smile, then we're going to go
with a single photo card. I like this one, with a black and white
Pupa's eyes are the lovliest blue and Fratellone's the handsomest
hazel, so I may go for a color single photo of the kids with
especially like that Shutterfly has the 5x5 format.
