Christmas Cards

Ho, ho, ho! Its exactly two weeks until Christmas! Have you sent out your Christmas Cards yet? Yeah, neither have I.

Last year we took super-cute pictures and I made those photo cards, a la Shutterfly. This year, however, we’ve been so busy that I didn’t even think to have photos taken. Plus, we’re living on a budget so I felt like dropping $30 on cards (not to mention stamps and the photographer) was a no-go.

Even though I’m not sending out cards, I do know what looks good and what doesn’t  After all, I did take Introduction to Photography. (Full disclosure: I made a C). Nevertheless, I’ve got some tips on how to make your holiday cards stand out above the rest:

1. Be sure to include the entire family.

"Don't want me in the picture? Guess who's eyebrows are getting shaved off tonight..."

“Don’t want me in the picture? Guess who’s eyebrows are getting shaved off tonight…”

2. Let your photo reflect who you are as a family:

"All I want for Christmas is a pack of Reds..."

“All I want for Christmas is a pack of Reds…”

3. Before you say “cheese”, be sure to trim the tree. Literally.

"Feed me, Seymour!"

“Feed me, Seymour!”

4. Keep the kids smiling. No one likes a sourpuss.

"Santa is so mainstream."

“Santa is so mainstream.”

5.  Put your differences aside, its the holidays!

"You use up all the glue...ON PURPOSE!"

“You use up all the glue…ON PURPOSE!”

6. If all else fails, never underestimate the power of cuddly animals:

cat and man

“His name’s Zazzles. He’s Zazzy!”
