Our Christmas Card!

Drum roll please.....

Here is the Christmas Card that I designed for this year:
I am thrilled with the way it turned out! We used the pictures we had taken by sg photography a few weeks ago. Steph was sweet enough to edit the pictures we wanted to use for the card and email them to me so that I could order it to be printed {through Vista Print... I love them!} Once I get the CD of all of our family pictures, I'll be sure to post them =)

One of the things I couldn't really decided on for the card this year was regarding the new baby. I was thinking of including something like "& baby M coming in May" but Bob and I decided against it. Some family and friends still don't know that I'm pregnant {I don't really like to make big announcements and our family is so huge that it would take weeks to call everyone.} I thought this may be a good way to make the announcement, but Bob thought it might be bad luck. I agree. So we decided to just keep our names on there for now, and Baby #2 can be on the card next year.

Also, this exact design is available in my Etsy Shop, 9 designs. If you're interested in ordering this, or any card, just shoot me an email by clicking here and I'd love to work with you! There's definitely still time to create a design for you to order for printing!

Let me know what you think of the card this year =)

We struggled with whether or not to add baby #2's name to the card too. But since I'm already 29 weeks and pretty much everyone knows, we decided to include her name and put (February) after it. Its so close, why not!?

When we were pregnant with Jacob I had a list of my top 10 names and also vowed my kid would never have a name in the top 3. DH vetoed every single one of my top 10 names and getting him to suggest some boy names was like pulling teeth. We had settled on Joshua Caleb (FINALLY!) shortly before DS was born, but when he arrived 16 weeks early and only weighing a pound DH said, "How about Jacob? He looks like a Jacob". I wasn't about to start fighting with him over names when our son was born at 24 weeks only weighing 1 lb 7 oz so I agreed. I am still mortified that I named my kid not only a top 3 name, but number 1 for 10 years and running! I hope if we have a third it is a girl because we, like you, already have a girl name!
