Christmas Pictures, Christmas Cards

I thought I'd show off a few of the Christmas card pictures we had taken a few weeks ago!  While we were at Disney, Nan Knight worked her magic and sent me a few absolutely gorgeous shots to use in this year's Christmas card.  I wasn't sure how they would turn out (the three year old was less than cooperative that day), but I absolutely love them!

A huge thanks to Nan for capturing such a special time in our lives!  I love the tradition of snapping a few pictures this time of the's definitely something I think we will continue.  It's so fun to look back on years past and see how we've changed.  I know I look a little different than I did this time last year! :)

Now to decide which Christmas card to use.  I've partnered with Minted for the past couple of years (2014, 2013) for our Christmas cards, and absolutely love their quality and attention to detail.  The paper quality is out of this world and their selection is great.  I love the concept of Minted too - it's a cooperative of independent artists and designers from around the world that are voted onto the site based on the popularity of their designs.

We went with the foil-pressed design last year and really liked it - it adds kind of a "wow factor" when you open the card, without being too showy.  I've definitely got a few of those in the running for this year too!

Here are a few of the designs I'm currently trying to narrow down.  It's a tough decision!
