Last year I didn’t send out Christmas cards because we were sending out save the dates soon and wanted to save money on postage. I started to feel really bad about not sending them because it seemed we received a record number of cards last year. Must be a newly engaged thing where everyone sends you Christmas cards. So this year I enlisted the help of my photographer friend, Anna of A.Rose Photography to help with my themed Christmas Card. (Go like her facebook page because she is awesome!)
She snapped this adorable picture of Bodhi, which I made a single Christmas card of to send to someone. I can’t say who yet because I mailed it last week and not sure they received it yet.
With the help of Shutterfly I turned it into this card.
Then our lovely photographer snapped this “family” photo of us, just in case my grand idea didn’t work out so great. Spoiler Alert: it came out great!
When we posted this photo on facebook everyone thought this was our Christmas photo for cards. However, we had a little “surprise” up our sleeves. When you use the word surprise everyone assumes you are pregnant and then the rumors started flying.
Luckily, our Christmas card idea came out exactly as planned and even Bodhi got in on the action.
Ryan is a HUGE Christmas Story fan so I was so excited to incorporate that theme into our Christmas cards.
I already have ideas for next years card that might actually top this year.
