I’ve not been very secretive about my love of Christmas cards. It’s a pretty well-known fact that I think Christmas cards are great. In fact, I keep the previous year’s cards packed away with our Christmas decorations so that I can enjoy them again. Last week I laid them all out and looked through each photo and note that we were sent, smiling the whole time.
So, while we’re reflecting on Christmas cards, I figured I would share a few of ours from years past. You saw our first Christmas already, but we’ve kept the tradition every year so far. It’s been an interesting progression to say the least.
Year Two – 2011
The year of the fish. Arthur, the beta fish, graced our card and stole our hearts. We decided to embrace this awkward family fish photo for all of its worth. Photo credit: Justin Salem Meyer, who is likely embarrassed to be associated with such a thing.
Year Three – 2012
Oh yeah, remember that time we decorated the heck out of our bikes and then preceded to use them in lieu of a tree that year? Gather ’round, put your gifts under that decked out bike in the living room! Photo Credit: Us running back and forth from the camera on a tripod.
Year Four – 2013
This was the year we went all over town wassailing. In case you were wondering, yes, we really did sing and play music throughout the entire photo shoot. What did you think it meant to wassail anyway? Photo credit: Cameron Lockey.
Year Five: I am SO excited to add this year’s card to the mix. It’s hard to believe it will be our fifth Christmas card already. I promise to share them soon!
Do you have any favorite Christmas cards that you sent or received? Any ideas for our next card?
