Christmas Cards...

I usually use Costco to order our Christmas cards but ALL of their cards say, "Season's Greetings" and I wanted ours to say, "Merry Christmas"!!!!!! So, I ordered mine from Sam's Club this year!!! Thank you Sam's Club for remembering WHY we celebrate the season!!

What's the deal with no Merry Christmas to choose from?? You know last year I got mine from Costco and got to write everything on it I wanted it to say(Merry Christmas) along with scripture too. I hope this did not change!
LOOOOOOOVE the photo of you all~♥

Good for you for switching to Sam's Club. I want "Merry Christmas" as well!

I can't Believe that. Everyone should complain so they know...
At least you've done cards. We haven't even taken a picture yet...

Love your card! Good for you for picking someone that kept Christmas in their wording. That would bother me too.

Beautiful cards and picture! And THANK YOU for knowing it makes a difference...and for standing up for that difference! I wrote letters to every big store chain last year that refused to use "merry Christmas" and told them I wouldn't be spending my CHRISTMAS money in their store! I make it a point to spend it places that actually celebrate CHRISTMAS and not the holidays. If we all ban together they will cave and get it right!

Darling Family Picture!
Actually beautiful family.
As a mom of three sons, isn't wonderful that if we wait long enough we get our beautiful daughters? I am glad our only daughtr has sisters in her life:)

I am amazed at how many stores can't even wish their customers a Merry Christmas!

I just noticed Nikki said the same thing:) We should all band together and write letters and let them know how we feel.
I am contacting my favorite Costco about this... Even a small wee voice is a voice.

Hugs, Beth

That's a beautiful card and I LOVE the family picture!

I have had the most difficult time finding anything that says "Merry Christmas" this year. It all says "Happy Holidays" or "Let it Snow." So frustrating!

Tanja said...

What a beautiful family photo Shaila. I would be blowing that one up and putting it out for display!

Drake Family said...

Love the pic and the card. That is crazy...Season's Greetings...really?? So as far as Mimi's book, I already did a post on it. Refer to Dec. 8th. Maybe if I didn't post everyday it would be at the top of my blog still. LOL

Your pix is soooooo great! We never got ours done....again! What a slacker I am. I think fam photos are the most stressful thing on the planet. Maybe we will this summer! Ugh! I am made about the Costco thing too. Way to go!

Your fam is so gorgeous!
