Do you have a family portrait on your Christmas cards?

I have found that many of the cards I receive from friends and family have the family portrait. I love this. I think it puts a personal air to the Christmas holidays. I usually send out the regular store bought cards. Would love to try the photo route, but DH thinks not.

  • We generally do, especially since we have a kid now. We do ones that allow more than one photo, so we can do a family portrait and some of just him.

  • I REALLY ENJOYED DOING OUR YEARLY FAMILY CHRISTMAS PICTURES FOR OUR CARDS AND WE WOULD WRITE A FUNNY LETTER ABOUT OUR YEAR. LAST YEAR MY DAD DID A FAMILY NEWS PAPER WITH OUR PICTURES AND JUST PRINTED IN OUT FROM THE COMPUTER. IT WAS ALOT OF FUN COMING UP WITH FAMILY MEMORIES AND TRIPS TO BRING UP, OR A GOAL WE HAD ACHIEVED OR GOOD GRADES IN SCHOOL, AND GOOD THINGS THAT HAD HAPPENED IN SPORTS. FAMILY AND FRIENDS ENJOYED THAT ALOT MORE THEN THE GIFT.

  • We had our 1 year old's 1 year pictures taken in Oct. and had a few family pictures so we are using those for Christmas pictures.I do not like christmas letters telling all about the year they have had. Just photo cards.

  • We put a picture in the card most years. Once or twice we have done them on the card.
