Our Minted Christmas Cards

Soooo, this post was suppose to post two days ago...but the pictures were all messed up and didn't load-- which was Good (a little Christmas miracle) because I don't like to show anyone our pictures until they've gotten their card in the mail, First!  And since Tuesday was the day I was putting the cards in the mail, I didn't really want this post to go up that day, too.  (I had thought I would have gotten my act together faster and the cards would have been in the mail way sooner than their reality).   But by now, hopefully you've all gotten your cards.

And it wasn't easy, but it was fun -- we Finally picked our Christmas cards this year.

As previously mentioned we used the FABULOUS site: minted.

We set up the tripod in the middle of Indiana University and told the kids to puh-lease smile...and then we would give them a good treat afterwards.  They did really great.

Here are all the lovely cards that didn't make the cut.




This one (below) had everyone's name, but I blurred them out).

The one that we did choose?



And WHY did we pick this one?  I happily designed them all and presented them to my husband.  He looked them all over and in about two minutes declared this one the winner.  Sweet works for me!! 
 I seriously loved them all and couldn't decide on my favorite.



Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
