I never really cared about the yearly Christmas card idea until we had Chloe.  Now I am a total sucker for these things!  It’s great to see how the kids grow from year to year.  Plus it’s fun to watch her pick out her friends pictures.  It is so simple to make these cards now thanks to sites like Pear Tree Greetings, Tiny Prints, Minted.com

We have started a family tradition of making our photo cards into ornaments.  That way each year we have a new one for the collection.  
This was our first card last year…

& here is our latest card…
This years card was from Pear Tree Greetings.


& our wonderful photography was done by Melissa Crain Photography earlier this year.  If you live in the Atlanta area she is amazing!

If you have a friend or family member with some camera skills, there may still be time this year.  Otherwise here are some really creative ideas to keep in mind for next year:
