  1. 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”.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

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