Are you ready for Christmas?

Hey everyone! Did you know that Christmas is coming?! Big shock, right? Actually, we still have some time, but there are less that 100 days to get ready. Lauren and I were inspired by Paperless Post (check out some of their fun Christmas cards) to share some of our favorite Christmas memories.  Paperless Post is a design-focused site that provides online and printed invitations, cards, and stationery. Christmas cards are a big part of the holiday season. I know I always look forward to getting cards from friends and relatives all over the country. It’s the one time of year we get to catch up on all that has happened in the past year. Paperless Post asked if we could share some of our favorite Christmas memories.

Many, many years ago, when I was just 5 years old, Santa came directly to my house and visited my sister and I. We were in awe! We sat on his lap and told him everything we wanted . I even got to hold and ring his Christmas bells! I remember going to bed right after he left and listening so hard for the bells and reindeer hooves on my rooftop.

Even my parents had to peek at Santa! These were published in our local newspaper back in 1973.

Here is the perfect card to remember this event! Remember, you can order paper copies or send these online. Click on the picture to go see this card.

Another great tradition is the annual family picture. Of course, our picture always has to include our doggies, and sometimes even the cats, if they cooperate.

A photo card would be a great way to showcase your family picture.

Hey everyone!  Lauren here!  When I think of Christmas, there are a few things I think of.  One of my favorite memories was when I was 5 years old (I know, long ago!).  I was a huge fan of horses and I wanted my own horse.  Well, I got a horse!

Not a real one, but a bouncy horse to ride in the house.  Haley and I had no idea we were getting a horse, but we screamed and couldn’t contain our joy when we saw this bouncy horse in the living room.

Even though this card doesn’t have horses, it has reindeer, and that’s close enough right?

Another tradition my mom’s side of the family has is one person is picked as Santa to pass out of the gifts.  It is normally one of us grandkids, and we always have fun with it.  And, the gifts are passed out from youngest to oldest.  I have no idea where that tradition came from, but it’s a great tradition!

Well, we hope that you enjoyed this post!  Please check out Paperless Post because they have some beautiful cards!  Remember, these cards can be sent online or by snail mail!

    What a wonderful way to send your Christmas Wishes to your loved ones. And to have the choice of snail mail or online is a bonus too. It is a great way for us to keep in touch with friends and family.
