Christmas Card Dilemma

While it's not a huge dilemma... it's one I've thought about. Do we send out Christmas cards this year being 9+ months pregnant with our baby? Do we wait until he arrives and be fashionably late with a cutesy photo of him to adorn a photo card? Do we send regular cards... or try Shutterfly for the very first time?

While still deliberating, we're considering a Christmas card/birth announcement that we'll order post-delivery so our little guy can be shown to the world. It may turn into a sort-of "New Years" card rather than a Christmas card, but that might be fun. Are birth announcements a thing of the past? In this digital age, it does make me wonder...

I was searching through Shutterfly's website and saw this gorgeous one that I loved...

Of course it wouldn't hurt if Shutterfly wanted to gift us with some freebie cards either. I heard through my friend Alli that they will be giving away 50 freebie cards to some bloggers-- now if we're chosen, we'll be under obligation to pick out something fantastic and send away!

I love that card:) I've used shutterfly for albums and cards before and have always been happy. I vote for a card/picture with baby W!

Love shutterfly or snapfish - tried both - both were great!

I would also vote for a card with baby!! That will make it so much more special and I bet nobody will mind getting it a little late!

Yes - I combined our Christmas card with the birth announcement when Adam was born.
Welcoming your baby is all about doing what you want to do and how you want to do it :) Can't wait to see him - you're getting so close!

I think wait! Everyone is going to want to see that new precious baby!
