Planning Christmas Part II

Merry Christmas, Santa, Snowman, Etc.
Merry Christmas, Santa, Snowman, Etc.

The next step in my Christmas plans is to get my cards done. I'm usually last minute with this and last year we didn't get them sent AT ALL! I felt terrible every time we got a sweet card in the mail knowing we didn't send any out. My only excuse is that both my older sons were coming home and I was just too excited to think about anything else.

In trying to have a frugal Christmas this year, I have decided I am going to use all those leftover cards from past years. None of them match, but I doubt the recipients will be asking each other what kind of card they got from us. My only problem now is what kind of picture to include. Some years we have professional pictures made (not gonna happen this year) and some years I take a picture with my digital camera and have prints made. That's not the problem. The problem is that every year our picture has included all 7 of us. This year, the older two won't be here to be in the picture. I don't know if I should just take a picture of the 3 kids at home, the 5 of us, or try to do some sort of montage with pictures of all of us. I don't want to overload people with pictures, or myself with work. I'm trying to keep things simple. I'm sure I'm making this more complicated than it should be. I have a tendency to do that unfortunately.
