I'm in the slow process of making our holiday photo cards--slow because it's really hard to get the right photo or to edit it so it looks like it's the right photo. And we're going with a 5-photo card this year. Does that sound crazy?
Hawk and I debated whether or not we should be in the photo or if it should just be the kids, but I was pretty fierce that we should. Not because I think everyone wants our faces up on their fridge, I mean, face it, the kids are way better looking. But I know that I love seeing my friends in the card, not only their kids or pets, and I also want to keep record of our family as the years pass. I'm hoping to put together a little photo card album. We've done one every year since our marriage, so it's fun to see how things change.
We also hand-write a message in each card. It's a pet peeve to receive a holiday card that lacks any personal message, even a Hey guys, happy holidays! hand-written. Even a signature is something, you know?
What about you? Do you think it should just be the kids/pets or the whole family together? Or do you think photo cards are over-the-top already? What about a little personal message?
