so i have a few options:
1. order cards now & send out Thanksgiving week (as i usually do)- cards will have a picture of alex only
2. order cards now & send out Thanksgiving week (as i always do)- cards will have a picture of the 3 of us (well, the 4 of us technically)
3. wait until #2 arrives, snap a quick family photo & send out cards the 2nd week of Dec.
i'm leaning towards #1 simply because i've got tons of pictures of alex so it'll be easy.
#2 is a nice thought, but getting the 3 of us dressed, outside & all smiling at the camera- dear God. i'm annoyed just thinking about it. but it'd be nice...
and #3 is a swell idea, because it saves me from doing birth announcements (the Christmas cards would be a 2 for 1 deal like we did with alex) - but i hate to wait that long. and what if she's late? then i'm screwed.
i'm anal about my Christmas Cards. i like them in your home by Thanksgiving so they can be properly displayed for a good month or so. and yes, i assume everyone would display our Christmas cards because they're bound to be awesome.
so yeah. what to do?
perhaps i should shoot for #2 by this weekend. so- if i can't get a good picture of us by Sun then i go with #1? yeah?
4. find an adorable card (with no pictures of us) and send that out instead.
hmmm- that sounds rather boring. but my my my, there really are some fab cards out there....
so far it seems that #2 is where i should be leaning...now to figure out if the husband has anything presentable to wear. i doubt it.
