  • I do send out holiday cards and recent pictures of my kids. We are very close with our friends and family so they love this and usually do the same. Just putting that in there cause I know that some think it's corny.

  • Were a blended family and My so and I arent married. I have been wanting to do a xmas card w update but doesnt seem right. But I do get my daughters xmas pics done and send them to my family. Last year I did a pick w my girls and me for the 1st time so Ill probably do a xmas photo w my so, his son, myself, and my girls and send to my family. If he wants his family to have than fine.

  • I do send out Christmas cards but I havent really sent out a family update. I may jot down a line or two on some cards.

  • I do send out Christmas Cards, usually with pics of the girls. But not an update, guess I could. It's a good idea. My family is quite spread out

  • I send out xmas cards created by the kiddos, either my older son or I do the drawing and then everyone colors them, with a collage of pictures made on my computer sent with it. Its a big hit in my family, when I don't send one or I send it late I get a phone asking where their card is, it's funny!

  • We send out a Christmas card with a Christmas update letter and a picture though sometimes the letter doesn't happen and it's just the picture!

  • Sorry, I do not. Simply b/c I find them usually phony. We used to have a neighbour that sent out family updates every year, and they were nauseating, b/c they came across as the happy little family that never argued or had a crosss word. We found out they have been in counselling, not that that matters, but don`t pretend you are all perfect, when in fact no one is.

  • Usually just send a card with a pic of the kids. Never have sent an update.
