The Holiday Card . . .

I don't know about you, but right before we hit Thanksgiving, I am thinking about the holiday cards. We usually don't do posed family snap shots only because we've never been able to capture it. So I usually pull something from family vacations or funny pictures that we have captured of Willsey over the course of the year.

We just so happen to use the Christmas photo cards at Shutterfly. They have such a great variety of cards, whether you want contemporary or more traditional. I just so happen to have found a card that was created by the American Lung Association which means so much to me in many ways. As you all know my mom died of lung cancer and this would be the perfect way to give back and honor her as well.

There were 8 different cards in the Lung Association section to pick from, but this one was definitely my favorite. I always go for the bright, yet simple design, this best describes us as a family. I like this card because I don't have to choose just one photo and with Willsey there are endless options to choose from!

I have tried to do a couple posed pictures of Willsey in different outfits but lately he has not been in the mood. What's new there. I find, like I said above that most of the pictures that turn out great are the ones that are just snapped randomly. Out of the 1000's of pictures I have taken this year, I know I will be able to find a couple that are just perfect for this year's holiday card from Shutterfly.

So go check out Shutterfly for your holiday card, I am sure there is one that will suit your family as well!

I never do the picture cards. I usually buy regular old cards, and then I stuff a few pictures of my kids in each one. I kick it old school:)
