I know Christmas was like a century ago, but I still want to post these Christmas card ideas so I’ll have them for next year. Because have I mentioned how much I love Christmas cards? I love seeing them stack up in the mailbox and getting caught up on friends we adore that we don’t get to see as often as we’d like. We have lived in so many places and there have been so many people who have touched our lives for good there, and now they still touch our lives each year when we find out what they are up to through Christmas cards.
We always get to admire them all month here:
Then for fun Dave always conducts a little vote with the kids to determine most creative, funniest, most classic, etc.
And really, they all win cause we love them all, but man, there are some creative people out there I tell you!
Here were some of the favs. from this year.

We loved this one:
And here’s another super creative one:
The kids oooooed and ahhhhhed over this one:She’s the one who put all our family movies on DVD for us (back here) so she’s a favorite in all our books anyway.
Elle and I loved this picture:
My picture of it doesn’t do it justice…all backlit so beautifully.
I love that it says “be bright.” What a great reminder to let our lights shine.
