I don't think that's cheesy at all, I think Thanksgiving is the perfect time to send out cards for exactly the reason you gave. I have an Aunt that has her own business and she is so busy from November through December she barely has time to shop for her grandkids, so a few years ago she gave up sending cards at Christmas and now sends them for Valentine's day.

Quoting Mama2ETA:

the kids every year. This year we're doing all of us for Thanksgiving cards.

I'm actually starting the process in October. lol! We decided not to do Christmas cards, and do Thanksgiving cards to tell our family and friends how thankful we are to have them in our lives. I know, cheesy.

Christmas 09.. lol Yeah.. we need to do them again. Hopefully we can get some done when we visit MIL in FL next week. I'm sad cause my favorite photographer wont be there tho. :(

The last one was 2007, I have wanted to get them done again but I keep it off because it doesn't seem right to take one without my youngest son. He passed away suddenly in 2009 from a seizure disorder at 19, he started having them right around age 14. But I'm finally at a better place with accepting his death and we are having one taken this year but I am going to take his last picture we have of him and be holding it in our new picture.

We don't. We had them done when my now 5 year old was a new born, but haven't since. We have a nice camera and take pics all the time, but usually my hubby or I are left out of pics because we are the ones taking it. We try to have someone else snap a few shots if we are all together and want to get a family pic in.

We haven't gotten a professional one since 2010 around xmas time. But we take family pictures all the time. Last time was in California couple weeks ago.
