Do you send out Christmas cards? If so, what kind...homemade, store bought, picture cards? Do you include personal notes, a letter, or just your names? How many do you send out?

I'm horrible.

I don't send Christmas cards. I always think about it; I always buy a box of cards; I always pick the picture of the kids that I'm going to include with the card... but I never send them. I suck.

We switch off between picture cards and a newsletter. This year, we're doing the picture cards because nothing much exciting happened this year to tell about. We send about 75 cards.

We send out cards. This year since I'm very pregnant we thought about taking a picture to include in some of the cards of our "family" (DH, me, and our dog) but we'll see if that happens. In the past DH has been on staff at a church and so we've had to send out a ton, but this year he's not on staff anywhere so I'm looking forward to sending out 15-30 to our family/friends and being done with it!

We do picture cards each year with a newsletter inlcuded. WAG had a day after THanksgiving deal of 20 cards for 5 bucks. I thought I needed 70 ish so we had 80 printed and then Iended up only needing 57 of them. But I give extras to my sisters that still live at home (I ony send 1 card to the house) and the kiddo likes to have some of them for himself. He crumples them up he looks at it so much! It came out to 21.50 including the tax.

I go back and forth on holiday cards. Sometimes I get to it, sometimes I don't. This year, probably not so much. We've never done the picture cards, and we usually don't include pictures anyways. When you're kid-less, there aren't so many people that are in dire search of holiday pictures, it would seem.

We didnt do the picture cards until we had the kiddo. I always pick the picture that he looks the best in as I know that's what people are looking at anyways!!
