Our 2016 Holiday Card

So excited to finally share our holiday card today!!!  We took these pictures back at the beginning of September, which already feels like years ago, the girls have positively grown at least a couple of inches since then!  Getting them done early was completely by default, my friend Brooke was in town and she has taken our Christmas card photos since the year I was pregnant with Avalon, so I just can't imagine anyone else doing them, ever!  It was still so warm out, so we were able to go barefoot and really be ourselves & have fun outdoors, which was such a nice change from being freezing every other year.

My romper is from H&M, and it's majorly on sale now, I've linked it here but there are only a couple sizes left!  I loved the color combo of the maroon & Waverly's light pink dress, a little twist on the more traditional holiday colors.  Avalon's dress is linked here and both girls have been wearing these on repeat this fall!


It was so hard narrowing down our favorites, Brooke is the best about taking a million photos (which is totally my jam), so there are so many more to share.  Another day! ;) There are way too many for one post!!!!!

We teamed up with Minted for our cards, we are big Minted fans for so many things, and there cards are just the best!  High-quality, innovative, creative, and so beautiful.  My favorite part is the option to write your addresses in and have them printed for you, completely perfect for a busy, working mom of two like me!  The card design I chose can be found here, it was so much fun playing with all the cards and figuring out which one went best with the two photos we went with.


The biggest thank you to my friend Brooke for capturing another sweet memory with our little family and to Minted for our cards!!!!  And wishing you all the happiest holiday weekend!

  6. Absolutely PERFECT!!
    We took our photos at the end of July (by default as well!), and while the kids have grown leaps and bounds since then there was zero pressure to get them taken and all ready for a holiday card.
