thank you cards. family style.

Christmas is over. Presents have been opened. Time for {none other than} thank you cards.

First, I am kicking myself that it has taken me this long to get out my thank you cards. Normally I am so on top of it. Oh well. Though, I am still an old soul who relishes in the etiquette of a thank you card. I know, I know. Not everyone agrees with me, but I think it is a lost art.

Call me a mean mommy, but this is one of those things that I really want to pass on to my kids. To be thankful, but more importantly, to let someone know that they are thankful for the time or gifts that have been given to them. Each year, we work hard to get thank you cards written and each year I think, “Isn’t there a better way?” With five people in our family we are either writing five separate cards or trying to squeeze it all onto one small card and saying the same thing over and over again.

Problem solved two years in a row. Last year, I shared our {5 x 7} thank you card version. You can find it here or below if that is more your style. This year? Oh my. It’s just plain cute.

Meet our {2014 thank you christmas cards}.
