Christmas is coming!

Christmas is coming, and I am especially excited this year! I always look forward to this season of remembering the birth of our Savior, but this year I am extra excited to share it with our little sponge, Bella Joy. I'm hopeful that she will soak up lots from the stories and scriptures we read over the next month.

You all know that one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is to send cards to our friends and family! It is our desire as a family to be intention even in choosing our Christmas card! So as I search this website high and low, all of the beautiful colors and sweet messages of the season make me smile :) Here are some of my favorites....

You can find this simple card here. I love the simplicity of this card. It is traditional with red and green and it says "Merry Christmas" which is a must for any card that we send.

This sweet card can be found here. I love the color and the chevron of this card. And (although it doesn't say "Merry Christmas"--I would likely add that in our love-the-jochims part) it says LOVE and JOY which are two words that greatly describe two wonderful gifts that our Savior has given us--unconditional LOVE and JOY that is our strength.

Here is another super sweet and simple one that can be found here. Again, I love the simplicity and the words. (and that is one cute kid!)

And lastly, another red and green square card (found here). I like this one a lot because there is more space for our family to personalize it (which will give us a chance to be even more intentional).

Oh, its so hard to choose! Stay tuned to a mailbox (or blog) near you to find out what the Jochim's decide!
