While Visions of Christmas Cards Danced in My Head

I have been behind all year. Behind on blogs, cards, gifts, announcements. You name it - I'm behind - still! I guess that's what having a newborn does to you!

Well one thing I am DETERMINED not to be behind on is Christmas cards! Every year it's this mad dash to get pictures, order them, look out the window at the UPS man like a lost puppy, rush to address them and finally get around to putting stamps on them and put them in the mailbox.

I know I can't be the only one who does this!!

So I'm starting the process early this year. We're having pictures taken in a few weeks and in the mean time, I will be looking for a card I love.

Each year I order my Christmas cards from - the prices are so reasonable, I love the holiday photo cards best and the quality is awesome!

Here are my Shutterfly Christmas cards from the past 3 years ~




So now here's the hard part - which Shutterfly Christmas card do I use this year for Trey's first Christmas?!

I think this one is super fun and would be great with a silly picture of Trey.

I love the retro feel of this one and would put a picture of the whole family on it.

I really love this one because I could put a bunch of pictures from throughout the year.

Such a hard decision! What do you think? Which option do you all like best?

**I was not paid for this review, but I was compensated with free Holiday cards in exchange for my honest opinion.

I LOVE the first one with merry in big letters ... I think you should do the one with lots of pictures next year ... showing how he gets bigger! :)

I know your card will be adorable this year with that handsome little addition to the family ;) You’ve done such a cute job on your cards over the past few years from the photos you posted and I really should think about using Shutterfly too. They really do have great prices for the quality.

I like the last one a lot, simply because you can include more pics!

I hope you’re doing great. Thinking of you…xoxo

Whatever you do....don't send just a picture of Trey. It drives me crazy when I get xmas cards from friends and the only picture is of their kids...hellooo, I want to see you too!
