Christmas Cards 2012

As many of you know every year we design our own Christmas cards.  This year was no exception!  Although this year instead of daddy designing it I did it.  I am pretty darn proud of how they turned out!  I was inspired by a few ideas I found on pinterest.  I took what I liked from a couple and designed our very own unique greeting card.

We had 100 cards printed and this year we ran out.  This has NEVER happened.  I still have a stack of last years cards sitting around here somewhere.  I did not mail all 100, some were handed out at family functions and at works.   At this point we have mailed 67 cards and I really need to send some more…not sure what to do since I do not have enough left. :(  We participated in the quad mom card exchange again this year.  It is so much fun, we love seeing all the pictures of some many other families from around the country and even a set in Canada this year!  We have received so many cards that we ran out of room on the dinning room doorway.  We have moved to the kitchen doorway.


I am sure that at this point you are on the edge of your seat just waiting to see what our cards turned out like this year.  Well I will not keep you waiting any longer.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours!

    Love the card design, had no ideal that you all designed your own cards. Do you print them also? They have always looked professional.

      We have designed them for the past couple of years and there is a local company that prints them for us. Thank you for the compliment. I absolutely love how they turned out. I joked with Randy that when I retire from teaching (many years from now) maybe I should go into designing cards. lol

    What a great ideal on the Christmas card. I think it looks great. Maybe we should have you guys design ours for next year *wink* *wink* ;)

      Thank you very much! I think it is so much easier to design our own than to try and squeeze our family into a template…we are definitely not an average family.

    Your Christmas card came out great! I love how personal it is. Merry Christmas! Maybe we could be honorary members of the quad Christmas card exchange since functionally we have quads, but technically we don’t ; 0 ).

    Wow you guys got a ton of Christmas Cards!!! You did a great job on the Christmas Card. So are the kids all enjoying the Christmas Season?

      The kids really are enjoying the season. Other than having a nasty cold go through our house over the last week or so it has been great. This year has probably been one of the best so far, mainly because they get so much more. They understood giving to others and what it meant to shop for someone else…that was a lot of fun! I have lots much holiday pictures and stories to share and I hope to get as much of those uploaded before they New Year.
