It is hard to believe that Christmas is here already. It snuck up on us so fast and although not entirely prepared, I am ready for it. Sure, having a newborn and toddler kicks my butt (thank God for online shopping this year), but there is something so magical about seeing Christmas through the eyes of your children and I am counting down the days until Christmas morning. I can hardly wait for Olivia to open her gifts. Although she just turned two, she understands quite a bit and knows what’s going on. She was so excited to meet Santa the other day and told me she was going to ask him for “toys, shoes, and books.” ha! No idea where she comes up with this stuff but it’s the greatest. When we arrived at the mall, she stood there staring at him, completely unsure. I carried her as we approached him to sit and have our photo taken, but she was NOT having it. She took my hand and tried pulling me as hard as she could to get up and away from the “scary man.” Oh well… Maybe next year!
Our beautiful Christmas Cards are c/o Minted. They are so wonderful and their website is incredibly user friendly. I love that you can preview the different card designs using your photos. It makes choosing an option SO much easier. I chose this foil pressed design because I loved the simplicity and how well the gold foil coordinated with my photo. I also love this card because they offer different options for messages, such as “New Year” or “religious Christmas.” They have some really great New Year cards in case you were’t able to get Christmas ones done on time. I really love these designs here, here and here. I hope everyone has the best Christmas and New Year! Happy 2017, lovelies!
