Last year at this time Natalie was a couple weeks old and I had no time or energy to put one together, collect addresses and send it out.
The years before that it was just Matt and I, and I don't think anyone wanted a picture of just the two of us wearing matching sweaters and Santa hats.
I really wanted to get a family photo of the three of us together but it is so hard to get a decent one of us all in one frame. Even just one picture of us all looking in the general direction of the camera and not halfway blinking can be a challenge.
I decided to use a picture of just Natalie instead but it was impossible to get her to look at the camera, so when she fell asleep I snuck a cap on her, adjusted the curtains in the room for better lighting and snapped away.
I used a website called cardstore.com to create my card. They had so many cards to chose from, including a line by Taylor Swift, Someecards, Papyrus and of course their own.
I spent forever playing around with different options and made at least ten different cards before deciding on one.
Call me lazy and impersonal, but in my opinion the absolute best part of this website is that they will mail the card to your recipient, completely free! No paying for postage, no handwriting the address, no licking the envelope, no walking to the mailb... you get the idea.
Plus they were running a promo for 70% off your entire purchase when I ordered mine and I ended up only spending like $12 bucks for 20 cards. That's the price of one card if you go to Hallmark!
Did you send out a card this year?
