Tis the Season for Holiday Cards

I just want to apologize in advance for the lack of creativity in our Christmas card this year.  I had every intention of sticking with our awesome idea (our dogs have matching lumberjack hats to prove it) but moving is hard work and I was on a deadline.  Plus, our photographer lives in the Twin Cities and I don't think I could get him to fly here just for a 15 minute project this year.

Two years ago, we realized that people don't care about our cards because they don't have children on them, so we decided to just get ridiculous and see if anyone noticed.  Here was our 2011 card:

Yes - we dressed up the dogs and they were horrified, but we rewarded them huge for that little stunt.  We actually got some response from people this year.  So, we continued on in 2012 with this card:

Yes, I wrote a limerick.  I loved this card.  It was ridiculous and cheesy and people liked it.  I had great ideas for this year's card, but instead, I ordered a whole bunch of boring this year.  For all of you, I will give you this - my cheap first attempt (pic monkey style) at a card from the dogs - now I'm just saving it on my desktop for my own amusement.

Do you love Christmas cards?


  1. oooh i need to start thinking about our christmas cards!!! these are so cute!

  2. haha "No one cares about our cards because there are no children on them" As someone without children I would have appreciated all these!

  3. That light one is cracking me up!I would love to do a Christmas cards if our dogs would stay still. It's impossible. And I love every kind of Christmas cards - with/without kids!

  4. Your cards are hilarious. I love them.

    We always do photo cards because we send out around 125 and NO WAY am I signing all of those.

  5. Those cards are hillarious! At least you have the ambition to do Christmas cards, I am just to lazy... I figure once we have kids we will start.

  6. I would MUCH rather see animals than babies. I'm horrible. :) haha
