Getting ready for Christmas

Every year when November gets near I near panic by the thought of getting Christmas cards and gifts ready to send home to Norway.

Every year I tell myself I will start earlier next year.

Every year I fail and I scramble to get everything done before it is too late.

This year I have found help through Shutterfly with at least half the job. All I have to do is choose one of their many Christmas layouts and a few of my best pictures and they will print the cards and ship them to me. Then all I will have to do is send them out.

Not only do they have Christmas cards but they also have New Year's cards and Thank you cards and I am almost considering ordering some Thank you notes this year on behalf of the kids.

For us having our family living so far away it is nice to be able to find ways to keep them close, showing them glimpses of our life here and doing it through these beautiful picture cards.

I am so relieved. If I could only find someone to finish all my gifts for me too.

These are three cards that I really like, but which one should I choose. I like number 1 because I can incorporate a short Christmas letter at the same time, I like number 2 because I can incorporate lots of pictures, and I like number 3 because I can write a little something about every singe person in our family to let everyone know each one of us.

Option 1 Option 2 Option 3

I am really having a hard time choosing though.
