    I don't have any pictures of the kids to send to relatives this year. I am debating whether to get the family together in front of the fireplace for a picture and then do one of those "Photo Cards" to send out to select family. But I can't decide...

    seems like a lot of hassle...and expense...

    and does anyone really appreciate those?

    Should I put in a lot of effort and get some photo cards made? or just forget it?

    difficult child actually had 30 photo cards made at WalMart for only $15. She brought in her pics, arranged them the way she wanted them and they were done while she waited!

    Awesome deal if you ask me. I may do it next year!

    Yes - that's what we would do....the Walmart deal.

    The hassle is going to be getting the family to cooperate for a picture! I don't have a single family photo in which someone is not making a face.

    Don't do ONE photo.
    Take a good picture of each person, or two together... and any pets... and make a collage.

    We did this in 2008 and again this year (the whole Meggie thing). My parents, husband and I, and all 3 kids. Sat on the sofa, snapped a bunch with the timer, then picked the best one and printed it onto card stock (50 cards & envelopes for $4.99 at Hobby Lobby). We didn't take them anywhere...
