25 Cute Family Christmas Picture Ideas

We just got our annual family pictures taken for our Christmas card this week.  I wish I was bold enough to use the one below, but we’ll probably end up using a safer pose where we’re all happy and boring (; 

But it got me thinking and it was fun to put together a list of 25 Cute Family Christmas Picture Ideas so here you go!

    These are fun and hilarious! I have one friend who does a hilarious card every year (and another that does an inappropriate and sometimes funny one). That takes planning…I am happy to get one photo. You have a gorgeous family!

      Thank you, Holly! That sounds like a blast- we are so boring with our standard family pose! LOL

    These are all great ideas. Too bad that by the end of the year, I’m so disorganized that if I sent cards out, they wouldn’t get mailed till Valentine’s Day.

    Oh my gosh, some of these are so funny! I love your fun family pose! You should totally go for it!

    So many of these speak to me as a mom . . . like We’re Hangin’ On or Silent Night. But the Baby Baker really takes the cake! That’s what it’s all about!

    Every year I try to do something creative and different — gets difficult as the years go by! I love all of these, except for the “armed family”.
