Christmas Card Photos: Help Me Choose?

We bought the kids Christmas pajamas over the weekend and I had big plans of doing a cute family photo opp in front of our fireplace. I’m not really feeling too picturesque lately though, so we decided to just take pics of the kids this year. These are our favorite of the bunch. We might decide to do a collage for our cards or just pick one and crop it a bit? I’m not sure. The kids were really into it this year, so we got these shots really quickly!

I kind of love the one of them kissing. We have one of them kissing on our card from last year though, not sure if two years in a row is overkill? That last one, it looks like the tree is crooked (and there are legos in the background!) otherwise it is really cute.

Which one do you like best? Or do you think we should go with the collage idea?

We put up our tree on Thanksgiving and I’m very pleased that the kids (for the most part) are only admiring it from afar. We lost pretty much all of our Christmas decorations in Hurricane Ike a few years back, so we don’t have much! Every year after Christmas we are buying a bit more (this mommy likes to save money!) and adding to our collection.

While I miss the decorations of my childhood, it’s nice to be building a collection together as a family.

What are some traditions your family has for Christmas? Have you taken your Christmas card pic yet? I’ve been seeing a lot of really great ones pop up on Facebook lately!

  1. I think you should do a collage, Heather! The first two are super cute. I like that the last one is a closer up pic of them as well! 🙂

  2. I like the idea of a collage, glad y'all think it's a good idea too! That is probably what we'll do. Just too many good ones to choose from!

    Thanks so much for your input 🙂
