"I made this card for my mom this year for her to send out to her friends and family. We used pictures of all of her grandchildren whom she feels are her Christmas blessings. :)"
"Ordered our Christmas cards from Shutterfly this year and they came out great! Got to use a coupon & got them and our address labels for a great deal!"
"I always order our Christmas Cards using Shutterfly. It's fast and easy. The finished product is always delivered timely and turns out great!"
"I loved the versatility of being able to adjust the number of pictures on the card. The cards are thick and substantial; much better than the photocards. Since I had issues with my order (mostly of my own making), I am particularly impressed with how Shutterfly stood behind their product and made sure that i was ultimately very happy with the card I sent out this year. Thanks Shutterfly!"
Celebrating the holidays as a family is one of the true joys in life. Children get to experience holidays like Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day for the first time with the help of their parents; adults have the opportunity to relive that magical wonder through the eyes of their children. Together parents and children can create holiday magic at any time of year.
Traditions can be as simple as sending Christmas cards as a family or as involved as baking cookies for all the neighbors. Juggling each parent’s personal family traditions with the needs, preferences, and abilities of younger family members can feel challenging. In reality, this is just an opportunity to revisit old traditions with new eyes. There are ways to integrate your favorite activities into your household and still celebrate the true meaning of each holiday.
Writing a long and thoughtful Christmas letter to family members is a treasured tradition in many households. However, coming up with the time to composes these letters can be difficult when small children require attention.
You can involve young children in this task by encouraging them to draw or color pictures for grandparents, cousins, uncles, and aunts. Engage kids only as long as they are willing to stay involved; boredom or fatigue will make them less inclined to create their own artistic efforts. If children can only color one image, scan or photograph that and use it as the art on your custom holiday greeting cards.
Holidays are a time for true family togetherness. Even in the midst of all the busyness of the season, that cozy feeling can be kept in your heart by sticking close to your favorite traditions.
