Christmas favorites

Christmas is coming and don't get me wrong I am totally soaking up every second of Fall that I can...but not many things get me as excited as Christmas mail. I absolutely LOVE going to the mailbox a throughout the month of December. Sending Christmas cards is probably one of my top 5 favorite things to do as an adult. Looking back it was the #1 thing I posted about in one of my Friday Favorites in 2015. I know, that's so cheesy but it's true. Every year I search EVERYWHERE for the perfect card to mail along with our yearly family letter. - 2015  2013 2012 2011 Preparing Christmas cards isn't something I dread...I totally look forward to it! No matter how hard I search I always come back to Tiny Prints. The quality is always top notch and there are so many choices. I have already started looking for this years perfect card...here are 2 few of my favorites:



So many people say they don't have time to send Christmas cards. I usually just smile and nod...it's just like anything else. You only MAKE time for the things you want to do...it's that easy. I enjoy sending out Christmas cheer to our family and friends we don't get to see often. Tiny Prints is super easy and quick. The website is super user friendly too! 

Wyatt and Sloane love getting the mail as much as I do...each evening we sit down together and open all the cards. Something else we started when Wyatt was younger was praying for each family that sent us a card. It's just a special way to incorporate all your friends and family into prayer time during such a special season. 

We display the cards from past years with our Christmas decorations. We save each years card on a ring for us to flip through. Christmas cards is a fun way to watch our friends grow!! 

What about you? Do you have a favorite part of Christmas prep too?
