2011 Christmas Card

It's that time of year again!  I think giving and receiving Christmas cards are one of my favorite things about this season.  I get so excited checking the mail everyday.  It's not everyday that you receive mail from loved ones and not just bills.  :)

This year I ordered my cards from Minted.  I like checking out different companies to see their designs.  I really liked this one because you could customize so much more and a lot of the designs are from small designers.   (I'm not getting paid to say this.  I just really liked them.)


I really loved how they turned out!   Yes, I realize that I look 5 months pregnant in the group picture.  It was a bad angle!  I still chose it because everyone else looked good.  :)
To see our past Christmas cards go here and here.

If you have 4 minutes to kill, here's a video of Ryan & I decorating our Christmas Tree in fast forward. 

Side notes:
* We obviously didn't get dress up for this video. :)
* Hanging of the Christmas lights took entirely too much time!  We ran out of lights at one point and had to run out and get more.  That's why you will all of a sudden see Ryan has on a sweatshirt and I have boots on.
* I totally dropped a ornament and broke it.  You cant' really tell since it goes so fast.
* The camera just stopped taping before we were done hanging all the decorations.  I will be posting pictures of the finished product and other decorations next week.
