Christmas Cards with Minted

Sending (and receiving!) Christmas cards is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. Snail mail from friends and family that you may not see often is always a special way to keep in touch.
I knew I wanted to order cards this year from Minted, and I was absolutely thrilled when I saw their new booklet cards! 

Since I haven't been blogging often, I wanted to send a card that would share with friends and family all that we have been up to the past year (our lives look very different from a year ago!), but wanted something a bit more special (with photos and nice presentation) than a traditional written letter... the booklet cards were just what I was looking for!

The great thing about the booklet cards is that you are able to customize what each page of the booklet looks like - perfectly meeting my Christmas card vision! There were several templates to choose from, but the "Greenery" was exactly what I was looking for... this year was beyond busy, but so much joy, indeed!

In our card I shared a short update on Jack and Emma. Given how young they are, they change so quickly, so it's fun to give a little personalized detail on the hooligans individually.

Also, since I haven't been blogging as often (hello, two under two!), I have a (very) large backlog of photos that I have been wanting to share. So a photo collage was exactly what I was looking for... an easy way to show people what we've been up to. From Halloween costumes, to apple orchards, and endless trips to the park - we've been having a lot of fun over here.

I also shared our "2018 Top Three." This year has truly been a blessing - we grew from a family of three to a family of four, spent our first year in Minnesota after our move from Texas, and explored our new state with two kiddos under two in tow. Our lives certainly aren't perfect, and we had our share of tough times - death, job changes, many sleepless nights - but the Lord has been so good to us this year... there is no question about that.

We are so excited for this holiday season... Emma's first Christmas and every year that Jack gets older the holidays get even more special! Amidst all of the holiday buzz, we pray that our family and friends also celebrate the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of our Savior and the ultimate mission of His life here on earth. Now that's a reason to celebrate! :)

As the back of our Christmas card says, "We wish you and your family a very merry Christmas!"

Love, the Prays
John, Lisa, Jack and Emma
