Meet the Sullivans: We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

I'm so thrilled to be able to say that the first batch of our Christmas cards are in the mail! I was a little worried that I might not get them out in time this year, but I did, and now I can move on with the other fun Christmas related activities I want to complete.

We had photos taken by Sweet Poppy Studios early in November, and as soon as our pictures came in I knew which ones we would be using for our card.


We used Minted for our cards again this year (cards from year's past 2013, 2012, skipped 2011 because I was too pregnant, 2010) and I picked the Spirit of Christmas card because the design is classic and went well with the layout of our photo. I'm so happy with the way they turned out!


We went with a picture and little message on the back too that basically just says we're so thankful for another wonderful year together with family and friends and that O is enjoying school.

Minted offered free recipient addressed this year, but I was too lazy to compile all my addresses into their site when I was ordering --- totally regretted that move when it came time to hand write them!

We wish you all a very merry Christmas!

I always use Minted as well. Aren't they the best?

Love your card! Such a great picture of your sweet family. I am STILL waiting on my cards and freaking out that they probably won't all get out before Christmas this year!

Gorgeous! I love them and that picture is Christmas card perfection!! I bit the bullet and uploaded all my addresses- easiest year ever ;)

Beautiful card! Ours was similar actually (I picked the same shape too!). I uploaded/inputed all 120 of our addresses last year and this year was SO EASY because of it. Totally worth not having to write out addresses, or even print out labels and stick them on. I'm going to order birth announcements from Minted too for just that reason, ha!

Great card, I am totally stealing your sentiment for next year. I wrote it down and it's probably going to sit on the post it on my desk until next year :) Great looking family!

Looks great! Beautiful picture! I finally did an excel spreadsheet after hand-addressing all of mine this year. Next year I will be ready!
