Christmas Card Tradition

Monday, December 15, 2014

Every year, I always look forward to sending our christmas cards, part of it probably has to do with the fact that I look forward to dressing up my dog, but who's checking. After halloween is over, I start thinking about what I want our cards to look like this year. Since we don't have kids yet, I like to include the dog in our photos. Last year if you remember, the card featured only Cooper :). And since getting both the cats to join us in the picture sounds like just a little too much chaos, I started brainstorming about a fun photo for all of us to be in this year. Here's some of the fun outtakes from our photo shoot and the final card at the end.








I am so happy with how these turned out! I found out it is actually a little difficult to find ugly christmas sweaters for large dogs if you want to be able to see a design from the front. And if our Christmas cards and the fact that I dress up my dog every year are any indication of what's in store for the future, our children are truly in trouble! :)

What are fun traditions that you include in your Christmas cards? Please tell me I'm not the only one who starts thinking about your cards in August!?!

  8. I love this! Unfortunately, Christmas snuck up on me and I didn't do cards this year, but my dog was wearing reindeer antler in last years pictures. My children are doomed.
