Christmas Cards....
I'm debating if I want to do Christmas Cards this year. I'm due on Christmas, but I don't think I'll be having a baby on that day :giggle: I don't know if we should do what we've always done and get pictures taken in the first week of December...or wait until after I have baby and send out "Holiday" cards after Christmas. I don't want baby to be excluded, and I'm not sure how I will look being all pregnant in Christmas card photos :blush:

What do you plan on doing if anything?

I think I will do holiday cards. We are due the 16th but even so there is no way I will have everything together before Xmas. I hope our photographer will get a good pic of both kids and I'll just do a winter themed card

Re: Christmas Cards....
This is my third time being due around Christmas, and I never got around to sending out cards with a newborn. I'm not really big on Christmas cards though anyway.

DD was born last November and a dear friend did beautiful pics for us. I have never sent Christmas cards, and I just didn't think about it until after the holidays. I had perfect pics for a card :/ so this time if baby comes early in December it might happen.. If baby comes around Christmas, more than likely not... :giggle:

Re: Christmas Cards....
no Christmas cards here this year. We live so close to family, etc. that we dont usually send out more than a dozen or so and hand deliver the others that we want, but I am sure people will understand. We will already be pushing it to get a family picture after he arrives to hand out at holiday gatherings.

No Christmas cards here either. We'll have enough money to spend on baby announcements and NB pictures (that will include all of us) so those will have to do.

Re: Christmas Cards....
We are due December 6th so we plan on taking the annual family photo, in front of the tree, with all three of us and if our cards don't arrive until after the 25th, I think everyone will survive.

Chances are the baby will be born before the 12/12 due date so we will do cards in front of the tree most likely. They can double as birth announcements.

Re: Christmas Cards....
Since I'm not due until New Year's Eve, there's no telling if we'll have a Christmas baby or not. It's possible since DD was 2 weeks early, but no guarantees. We may just do a nice maternity shot with a holiday theme and make that our Christmas-card shot. Word will get around if "Tiny Tim" makes his entrance before Christmas!
