Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to get started on holiday preparations which includes getting family pictures taken. Although we weren’t allowed to photograph our favorite pooch in our family pictures this year (my hubby’s K9 partner), we are loving all these cute Christmas family pictures with animals. Pets are a good way to add a little fun to your Christmas family pictures, especially since they’re part of the family, right! If you’re looking for more ideas on this years family photo shoot, check out our 25 cute family Christmas picture ideas as well. And when those Christmas cards start coming in the mail, visit our diy holiday card display tutorial for a cute place to show them off.

We love annual Christmas pictures to share holiday cards with friends and family. We scored these pretty Glory to God cards this year and are loving the trendy calligraphy and darling color scheme.

"Glory to God in the Highest Star" - Bold typographic, Hand Drawn Holiday Petite Cards in Red by Alethea and Ruth.

The real gold foil cards were a runner up, we like that you can customize the shapes of the cards too.
