A year of Happy 2012

I have used photo Christmas Cards since my first child was born,  always a photo and a letter.  The letters aren't as exciting now that the kids are grown and have families of their own.  I love to show off my grandchildren.  It is hard to find just the right picture.  I only use the ones on my camera.  Still I get, "I don't like that one."  I read somewhere to include a picture of the person sending the card.  So this year I added Mr. Cozy and myself.  Guess what he said. "I don't like that picture."  I can't win.  I probably won't do this for every.  This year I did this multi picture card.  It actually took several hours.  I then had to make sure everyone was in the same amount of pictures.  Since some live out of state that was even harder.  The ones that got the solo pictures didn't come to our house.  I like using the groups ones because they usually are silly ones.  So this is our happy times.  Merry Christmas from Cozy Blanket.

That is such a nice tradition, Debby. I never did that with cards but I wish now I had! Have a great night - xo Diana

Hi Debby, what a nice way to put importance on family instead of a bought greeting card that you get at the store.

It will be appreciated when everyone gets older and they will say, gee, look how great I looked way back then, lol...

Merry ChristmasHugs,
JB

What a lovely tradition. Keep putting yourself & Mr Cozy in the pics.....when those grandbabies are showing the pics to their children they will treasure you being there too. I only have one picture of my grandma because she didn't like her picture taken.
Merry Christmas Debby! Blessings on you & your beautiful family in the coming New Year

That's a great idea for a card, Debby! No one seems to like how they look in pictures. I know I'm picky, but luckily I'm the one usually taking the pictures! :) Merry Christmas!
