DIY Holiday Card Ideas

We love sending holiday cards each year. It's a fun way to reflect and share with family and friends all the fun we had throughout the year.

Sometimes we get creative and other times, we keep it simple. We love Christmas song parodies, but since those take some time to craft, we opt for simple messages from time to time also. If you're looking for ideas on what to do/write for your cards this year, here are some ideas from our cards over the years.

2016: Shine Bright

Dear Family and Friends,

What a wonderful year it has been for our family. Zander turned 6, started kindergarten, lost his first tooth, learned how to ride a bike and continues to love building with anything he can get his hands on. Zoey started preschool, rides her scooter at lightning speed, started swim lessons and loves playing with her baby dolls. Chris and Mary took an adventurous trip to Costa Rica filled with zip lining and rainforest hikes. We hope that you and yours have a fantastic holiday season. May your days be merry, bright and full of love.

2014: Happy Holidays to the tune of Holly Jolly Christmas

We have a holly jolly household
It’s messy allll year
Well, I’m pretty sure there won’t be snow (in San Diego)
So we’ll have a glass of beer

We have a holly jolly household
And when you walk down the hall
Say hello to the legos we know
And how they puncture our feet

Ho, ho, Zander goes
To preschool and is happy as can be
Zoey runs to you
Kiss her once for me

We have a holly jolly household
In case you didn’t hear
Oh, by golly, Chris is designing advanced concepts
This year

We have a holly jolly household
And when you walk into Mary’s office
Say hello to the ROO you know
And everything is sweet

We have a holly jolly household
This year

2013: Happy Holidays to the tune of Deck the Halls

Deck our house with baby Zoey
Fa la la la la, la la la la
She’s our reason to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Zander’s in big boy apparel
Fa la la la la, la la la la
He’s potty trained and learned his first
Christmas carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Chris and Mary’s designs are increasingly clever
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Levi likes to play and sleep for pleasure
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Amazed how quickly the year passes
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Gone are the days that move slow like molasses
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Here’s our family, all together
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Days and nights, filled with laughter
Fa la la la la, la la la la

 2010: Happy Holidays – The hightlight of our year… – To the tune of Jingle Bells

Labor bells labor bells
Zander’s on the way

Oh what fun it would be
To bring our baby home today

Dashing to the hospital
On our hybrid sleigh
Over to la Jolla we go
Contractions all the way

The baby car seat’s in
We hope we installed it right
What fun it will be to give
Levi a brother tonight

Labor bells labor bells
Zander’s on the way

Oh what fun it will be
To meet and hold our baby tonight

On the 19th of September
Two thousand ten
Our precious baby boy was born
And our life won’t be the same again

Now we’re changing diapers
So many we lost count
Who knew a baby could poo so much
Guess that’s what parenting’s all about

Baby bells baby bells
Zander’s here to stay

Oh what fun it has been
To raise our precious Zander
Each and everyday!
