First of all, thank you, for all the comments and encouragement and commiseration and "I'm in the midst of it too" on my last post. I seriously still intend to sit down and reply to many of your comments. It has just been hard to find a chunk of time on the computer, or I should rephrase that– a chunk of "productive" time on the computer. But seriously. Thank you.
Every year just before the holidays, I tell myself that this is going to be the year that I get my act together and mail out a Christmas card. And every year, I'm determined to not go the route of pre-designed, purchased photocards. I vow that I'll design my own unique, creative version.
That vow hasn't gotten me very far. It has been more than SIX YEARS I'm guessing since I sent out a Christmas card. And even then, it might have been a baby announcement, not a true holiday greeting.
But this year, I came to my senses and ordered our Christmas card from tinyprints. Hello? Why had I not been doing this earlier?
But….I was still determined to add our own "flair" to the whole thing so at the very last minute I whipped up a little "best of 2010" to throw in with the card.
I have to say, I kind of love it. It was so fun making every one come up with their list. Emma had hers finished in five minutes. Dan and I agonized over ours.
And let me just say, apparently, I don't watch a lot of movies. Coming up with a best movie title for 2010 was painful. I know I saw some good movies. I'm sure I did. But in the end, 3:10 to Yuma was the best I could come up with. I remember it having a really good story line. And Russell Crowe. That makes a good movie, right?
Anyway, I've been meaning to share our card with all of you. Since I couldn't possibly afford the postage for a card for each of you. :)
Next year, we plan to add another category for the girls. But I think I'll keep that one under my hat until the end of 2011.

that was my favorite thing i received! and i fully intend on copying you next year. xo.
Perfect! We used timyprints this year, too, and I loved the quality. 🙂
Ps: 3:10 to Yuma was good. xo
I love this too, almost as much as Katie trying to figure out why there was an extra girl in the photos. Clearly, it’s been too long since we’ve seen you.
I love your idea. It is so interesting when I ask everyone their favorites. I hear some surprising things. I think this may need to become a tradition around here.
Love your card!And let me just say, that not ordering cards in 6 years is a sight better than ordering them some time during those 6 years and then not sending them out. Not that I’ve every done such a thing. Ahem.
Love this. I, too, plan to copy for 2011. Fun to see what everyone is liking!
Right on with Defiance! what a splendid movie of courage.
What a GREAT idea!
Great idea–a fun way to share a little bit about each person without having to write a long letter!
How fun. I’ll have to download a sample of Coop!
What a fabulous idea for including in your Christmas cards! Love this!
Oh funny to see Defiance (the movie) in there….I’m FROM Defiance and my mom lives next door to one of the sons…I only read the book, and heard the movie was NOT shot in Defiance. Hmph.
