Merry Merry

1 Dec

It’s the time of the year again folks.

You know the blessed time of year where families come together to take stunning family portraits like this…

And I don’t know about the rest of you. But I’m particularly upset that I didn’t snatch up that red little pleather ensemble for my family christmas card this year.  There’s always next year I guess.

Meanwhile, I imagine I’m not the only one scrambling to get our Christmas cards printed and sent out this year-hoping they’ll be adorned on refrigerators across the country.  Have y’all sent out your cards yet? If not, make sure you go and visit Shutterfly’s website to see all the awesome deals they have going on right now for their holiday cards.

It’s hard isn’t it? Choosing one card that helps to not only represent your family, but that also sends out happy well wishes to your nearest and dearest-those of whom could be celebrating everything from Christmas and Hanukkah to Kwanzaa or even Festivus (for all you Seinfeld lovers out there.)

But let’s be honest, once you’ve secured your dynamite family portrait (see above photo) the hard part is done. Shutterfly has an amazing selection of cards which makes it super easy to snag the perfect greeting for your parents, friends and estranged Aunt Sally who your mom insisted be invited to your wedding to help keep the family peace.

I had such a blast surfing their website to find our family’s card for this year-and once you’ve made your selection, the website is SO user-friendly in helping you to design your card.  You simply upload your photos, and drop them into the spots on your card, and voila, before you know it, your Christmas card recipients will be drooling over your lacy garter they weren’t brave enough to sport in their picture.

And perhaps you’re thinking…I won’t be sending out a holiday greeting card this year. Maybe you aren’t married. Perhaps you don’t have precious children to show off. Or you’re just not down with spending a small fortune on postage just to let your inner circle know you’re thinking about them during this special time of year. Well I can guarantee Shutterfly’s website still has something for you.  Maybe you need thank you cards, or you’ve got an event coming up that you need to design an invitation for. Whatever it is, I promise that Shutterfly is the way to go.

And just in case you weren’t sold on the red pleather…here are a few other family photos to help you get your creative juices flowing as you plan your family’s attire for this year’s holiday photo…

December is here people.

It’s the most wonderful time of year

Here’s hoping that we all sit back, take deep breaths, and remember the reason for the season.

    oh shubie – I so wish you lived here! This post is hysterical! I just ordered my cards yesterday. Who knows when they’ll arrive and Lord willing, I’ll actually get them mailed before Christmas. Gosh, being a mommy slows me down. 🙂

    Bahahahahaha! I love this. I told B I want us all to wear matching pj’s next year for our picture. But I couldn’t even get it out without dissolving into a fit of giggles.

    What? You mean it’s not appropriate to wear a Santa outfit and a garter?? Oops! haha 🙂
