When I get a Christmas card without a photo or handwritten message - or at least a newsy letter, I almost throw it over my shoulder instead of putting it in the card basket. I think to myself 'why did someone spend the postage on this?'
Mother Rabbit says: Send a photo(s) in your holiday greetings.
Holiday Photo Cards have been a tradition my whole life. My mother sent a photo card of my sisters and me every year. We were usually wearing matching outfits. I grew up thinking that Christmas cards were photo cards. I have an album of all these cards and it is one of my greatest treasures.
I also believe that the parents should get in the photos. While I think it is cool to see photos of my friends' children, what I really want to see is my friends. Get in the photos.
My favorite Christmas card to date was in 2008 when our children and two sons-in-law could actually spell out M-E-R-R-Y C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S! This year I have been designing cards for other families - and having a blast. Photo cards are a good investment of time and money. Tis the season to be planning and sending your holiday greetings!
I started Mother Rabbit Says blog as a place to share my motherly advice for my bunnies who have left the nest... spoonfuls of wisdom that I have heard myself say again and again, which they possibly need to hear again. I love that I now have a bunny following bigger than my three girls and our wonderful blended family. This is fun.
Now I am blogging about our house renovation and Mike's cancer journey too.
