I looked at several websites for Christmas cards, but truthfully, I found my favorite at Shutterfly.com. Just like last year!
They have the most enormous selection (and I am very picky!).
So our card is ordered and I thought……Ohhhh, I have to be all shhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone about our Christmas card, because if I do, it won’t be a surprise.
I figure getting one in the mail (to have and to hold) is so much different than seeing it online. Plus, maybe I will give you ideas of how to do your card, just in time for Christmas.
Because if this doesn’t get you in the Christmas spirit. I don’t know what will.
If you can believe it, these did not make the cut (too many to choose from). But, I adore the girls in these beautiful dresses. The dresses are from a locally owned business called Oopsy Daisy Baby. The girls are on their website modeling some of the pettiskirt and legging combos. Most of them are under the leggings or holiday tab.
I sure had fun doing our cards this year. That is one good thing about being a photographer.
Since we haven’t got our tree(s) up yet, this was the next best thing (along with the chilly weather) to get me in the mood for decorating and shopping (and maybe some Starbucks hot chocolate too).
Has anyone else got their tree and Christmas decorations up?

I have not done anything Christmas related except shopped. Sometimes it is one step at a time and we are doing that this year. This weekend we might get our tree.
Great pictures! Haven’t put the Christmas trees up yet.
The pictures are fantastic. The one with you in it, wearing that hat, you look like a kid yourself! I absolutely love the pictures of the girls together, and the really cute dresses.
We tossed out a lot of our Christmas stuff when we moved, but I have put out what decorations I have. We will get our tree and finish decorating next week.
I love your card!! It’s adorable!!
Your cards & photos are simply gorgeous! Beautiful! I love it!
Your sweet daughters are the cutest sisters. What a bond they share.
Yes, we have our tree up. It’s a relatively new tradition for us to put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving while my sister-in-law and her 3 teenage children are here. Their father died 2 years ago, and we’ve had them celebrate Thanksgiving with us ever since.
Love the card! I adore the pictures of the girls. So beautiful- all of them!
We don’t have any decorations up yet, I’m still recovering from Thanksgiving. Plus, I redecorated the living room and I’m not sure where I’m going to squeeze a tree in. Ooops. I’ll have to get going on that. I do have a lot of my shopping done though!
Have a great holiday season!
You guys are rockin’ Christmas!
These are so beautiful! I just love the combination of colors & you all look so happy! Very nice!!
Love how you’ve made sure you’re not in the photo 🙂 Very cute!
Absolutely gorgeous pictures. ALL of them. I love them. I can’t believe those didn’t make the cut!
What a beautiful family! 🙂 These are all incredible photos! I put my Christmas tree up immediately on Friday… and my littlest cat has already climbed it and broken at least 4 ornaments! haha. At least she’s enjoying it, right?
I don’t see the hallway snake anywhere in there. What gives?
Great photos, nonetheless! Happy holidays!
LOVE Them….and Shutterfly!!!!!! Doing a baby book for SamSam right now with them!!! 🙂
Beeeeaaauuutiful family! Fantastic photos and I love the Christmas card! ❤
I love the hats! I have a soft spot for cute winter hats. Ah, heck – hats i general!! I can’t ever seem to get all my kids in a hat (and liking it) at the same time.
