Christmas Cards 2011

My orange package came today!! I loved the birth announcements I ordered through Shutterfly so much that when I got another discount from them I decided to order Christmas Cards as well. I had fun looking at all the greeting card options (they have TONS). I was really excited about them and am even more excited now that I have them in my little hands. They are awesome! I was so excited that I put my update in them and sealed the envelopes right away…

I admit I was a little too excited because I didn’t even write anything in them. OOPS!… They were just too pretty to ruin with my mediocre penmenship, ri-ight?? lol I did put our update in them though 🙂 It always takes me a while to get our update together because I don’t like writing essay long letters. I’d rather make it short, sweet, and fun. Besides, I don’t think many people would actually read our “letter”. So I’m always looking for new ways to update our friends and family. This year I was inspired by Hilary over at Happiness Is…

Now, I realize a lot of people don’t even do updates anymore, but I like doing them because we send cards to family out of the area and friends we don’t necessarily  talk to on a regular basis. In fact, outside of Christmas cards we may not even talk at all!

DIdn't think the picture through, so I had to smudge out the addresses... You know why 🙂

I typed up our “ABC’s” on the trusty ol’ laptop and printed it on 6″x6″ paper from DCWV Christmas Combo 180 Stack. It’s a 12″x12″ stack, so I cut the pages into quarters. Can’t wait for everyone to get our lovely cards and know the latest from the Medeiros Household.

Merry Christmas! From our home to yours.
