Thursday 13 - Our Annual Christmas Card

click on image to enlarge
I keep our annual holiday cards in a special Christmas
album that is covered in red taffeta with our family name
embroidered on the cover.
The photos here are in order from our first Christmas in 1994.
In December we put the album out in the living room and
awe over how quickly the time goes. I haven't had a family photo
I've liked since 2001, but it's definately one of my resolutions for 2008.
Christmas 2007

Join in the Thursday 13 Fun!

Cute! we have done one every year for the last 7 or so, and I just realized that I have not kept ONE. Ridiculous. So, this year, I did, but now I am going to have to see if anyone else kept one that I can have back for the previous seven years! I love all your cards.

I really should start doing a photo card of the kids each year.

Maybe this will be the kick in the pants I need to actually get it done!
Happy Thursday!

Sweet. We've thought about doing this for years but I hate having pictures taken of me. I admit, the promo pick I use is like 12 years old or more.

Happy TT

Terrific idea! And a great way to display and reminiscence. Happy New Year!

I do photos each year but they are not organized in one place. Good idea.

I like that you place your Christmas album out to look at. That is fabulous.

I hate having my photos taken, but the kids are so right for the job -- about as cute as yours, I think ;)

Happy TT!

Since my camera's gone digital, I haven't had any printed pictures. I might have to do some, because your books is a great idea.

Great photo memories.
We take photos of the grand kids every year, put them in small Christmas photo frames and decorate a whole tree with the memories of Christmas past.

Your boys are quite the charmers in the making it seems! Thanks for coming over.

My family never did the photo cards for the holiday's. In fact growing up I don't recall sending out that many cards either. Now a days we tend to just put together a small gift of something fairly practical. or send the odd Ecard.

One great thing that we do do is use the card that we recieve to make gift tags for the following year. Its a great way to reuse them.

It’s Christmas again!! A time to cherish the beautiful white snow, smiling snowman, brightness of the Christmas d├ęcor and the yummy candies and cakes! From November onwards it becomes impossible to forget that Christmas is coming. Well to be honest I personally wait for it so that I can return home to meet my parents and girlfriend of course!
With the passage of time lots of things about the celebration of Christmas has changed. I still remember when I was a kid, mom use to wait near the phone so that she becomes the first one to pick my brother call. We all use to have a fight as who is gonna be first to talk to him. Then I use to visit my relatives and friends with my parents who stayed near by.But now the net world has changed everything, especially the ecard trend. It’s so easy now to connect with our loved ones especially when you have so many ecard sites! One of free Christmas ecard site Being a new website really has fresh and cool greetings. The best part is if I write too regarding some card or idea they do take it seriously. Although the site has several errors but cards are really cool! So guys why don’t you check it out, you will also get the right ecard you are looking for! And if any one of you knows any other fresh ecard website do let me know!
