Last year, with the craziness we had after the wedding, moving across town, a Nor'easter, B being gone and then back and then gone and then schedules changing (sea duty, I don't miss you one bit!), and me quitting my job and traveling to Georgia amidst all that, we just did not have the chance to send Christmas cards. But this year, I really want to! It's the married thing to do, right?
We'll definitely be doing the customizable kind with pictures, like these from Shutterfly:
|Snowman with style.|
How cute is that? (Too bad I've never actually seen snow on Christmas!)
|Christ is King. Hooray for religious cards!|
Another thing I've been meaning to do before the year ends is to make a fun photo calendar. I always loved looking at the picture calendar hanging in my friend's kitchen. It told a lot about their relationship and their family. The calendar we've used this year was cute (it had submarine cartoons, and I bought it to support the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation), but I've already threatened B with a "cute kitten" calendar for next year. I'm pretty sure he would throw such an atrocity away, so I think a photo calendar would be pretty awesome. I've actually already started making one using the following template:
|Rain or shine. Simple and elegant.|
I also love how you can customize the dates and even put pictures on the date block. Hopefully we won't forget my mother-in-law's birthday again!
Our only issue now is to get some more darling pictures of the two of us. I think I need to convince my mother to play photographer when we visit for Thanksgiving : )
