When Michelle and I lived together after college, we sent out Christmas cards.
My favorite was when we dressed up like trees and mailed out a card to all of our family and friends that said, "Have a tree-mendous Christmas."
We even sent one to Hoda and Kathie Lee in hopes that our cleverness would get us a guest spot on the fourth hour of the Today Show, but that call never came.
I couldn't convince Matt to dress himself up like a tree this year, so I selected a photo we already had for our Christmas card. We went to a wedding in May, so I chose that photo since we were all spiffed up and both wearing blue.
When Matt asked me which photo I chose, I said, "one from the wedding," assuming that he'd know exactly which wedding I was referring to.
A little while later, Matt said, "Maybe you should rethink the photo. I think it's a little weird to send picture of us that's three years old."
When I said "the wedding" he thought I meant OUR wedding. Which yes, would definitely be weird three years later.
Our cards just came in and I'm heading to the post office tomorrow to send them out. This year I got them from Tiny Prints, and I love how they turned out!
Tiny Prints had so many cute things on their site this season, so I picked up a few extra gifts. I got this "L" coffee mug and notepad for my mother-in-law.
I also ordered this neat metal print for my mom, it's her favorite picture of us kids. And because I always buy one gift for myself when I'm shopping, I ordered this neat curved glass print of my favorite park for my office!
If you need a last minute gift, or are sending out Christmas (or New Year's!) cards, definitely check out Tiny Prints!
And Merry Christmas, from us!
