A Christmas of firsts...

This Christmas is both exciting and bittersweet. It's a Christmas of firsts, for me. It's our first Christmas in our new house, and our first Christmas as a married couple. Unfortunately, it's also my first Christmas away from my family, and my first Christmas where I won't be in Massachusetts, participating in the traditional activities we every year.
However, it is not the first Christmas I will be sending out photo cards!

I have been a fan of Shutterfly for a while now, and have used them for several years in the past both for Christmas cards and regular photo prints. I can't wait to order our holiday cards this year! I haven't decided if I want to go with a card with several photos like this...

Or a card with just one, like this one:
I also haven't chosen the picture yet either, but have no fear, I will one of these days!

One of the things I love about Snapfish is the variety of cards and other things you can order. For example, did you know they have Christmas gift tags? How fun would it be to wrap all our gifts and put a personalized tag on them! Of course then I'd have to remember whose gift belonged to whom, but I'm sure I could work that out.

Another fun idea is to send Thanksgiving cards out! If you can get your act together prior to Thanksgiving, this is a great way to kick off the Christmas cards that flood your mailbox. This way you get your picture cards in early so everyone can enjoy them, and they don't get lost in the shuffle. Unfortunately for me, I did not get my act together early enough this year, but maybe next year!

Of course for me, nothing beats a good Christmas card! I always have the hardest time picking out a card because they are all so good! My favorites are the ones with snowflakes on them.
