Christmas Card Photos

11.18.2012
I know I know....Thanksgiving is not even here and I am talking about holiday cards.  But we are on a quest for a reduced-stress Christmas.  Which sort of sounds like a reduced fat Christmas, but assure you that will not be the case.  Even though it is probably at the top of my thighs wish list.

Anyway that means getting stuff done early.  The majority of the gifts are bought and even the handmade ones are almost done.  Maybe I won't be sewing all night Christmas Eve.  Said the queen of procrastination.

Getting a Christmas card picture was also on the to-do list.  I had grand visions of recreating some pictures I took last year.  With a cooperative and non-moving 5 month old.

So easy and cute.


This is what we have this year with a 16 month old running toddler.


Or this.

This is the best we got so far.

 I am thinking I may have to let go of the light idea.

But not having a picture has not stopped me from trying to find a card.  Since looking at all the pretty pictures on them makes my toddler photographing skills seem very inadequate.




All of these are from Minted.com.  I love all the shapes they offer and that the designs are products of independent designers.  And every time I look on their site I find another design to love. 
Now all I need is a cooperative toddler. Or someone to send a photographer to the house.

*Minted is supplying our Christmas cards this year.  All the opinions and writing are my own and I just picked some of my favorites to share with you.  But if you happen to receive a Christmas card from us, it probably won't be one of the above as there are just so many great ones to choose from.  But it could include a crying toddler on it.  Or his mommy.

  1. I want to call you and tell you how much I laughed at that second picture, but I'm afraid you wouldn't be able to understand me. Justin thought I was choking. Greatest. Picture. Ever. Please make that one my Christmas card.

  3. These photos makes me smile. Toddlers does amusing things. They makes us laugh with their tricks. They are the best subject for photos and card covers.

  4. OMG! Jenny! I tried to do the same Christmas card photo with my 16-month old son with the string of lights and you would have thought I was asking him to touch fire! He cried, and screamed and threw himself every which way. We got nothing. Here's hoping you have a better outcome! Merry Christmas!
