Christmas Cards of Years Past

I LOVE snail mail!  Cards in the mailbox make me happy and I swear my family could single-handedly keep the postal service in business.  So of course, Christmas cards are a big deal in our house.  My mom has been sending out Christmas cards the day after Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember.  Everyone always knows that my mom's card will be the first card in the mailbox.  So when Rob and I got married, doing Christmas cards was an obvious.  While I am not the first card (I let my mom keep her reign haha), I try to get mine mailed out on December 2nd every year.  We have become pros at tripod photography and it's fun to see the little changes from year to year.  Hard to believe that in three years of cards we have lived in three different states!  (Hard to say but if I had to bet, I would guess next year will be four in four.)

2012 --- We lived in Virginia and took this picture on my mom's back deck.

2013 --- We lived in Florida so of course we had to do a "warmest wishes" card on the beach.  Somehow we picked the most gorgeous day to take these pictures and they are still some of my favorite to date!

2014 --- This year's card comes from Mississippi.  We took these pictures on the flight line (on a Saturday when hopefully no one was working or flying!)

The only thing I like better than sending out Christmas cards is getting them! I swear my mailman knows me by name because I run out to the mailbox everyday in December checking for cards!

Do you send out Christmas cards?


  1. I love these! Absolutely adorable! Yall's photos are gorgeous! I ordered our cards and still haven't gotten them! Yikes!

  2. Ahh! I love that you took these yourself! So cool! I especially love the just 'plane' amazing card - so cute!! :)

  3. All of your Christmas cards are so cute! I love how each one reflects your lives for that year all in one picture, very neat!!

  4. I love sending out Christmas cards each year! But you are right, I love getting some good old fashion snail mail. If only my family was eager to send me cards or letters. :(
