In past years one of my favorite parts about the holidays were the cards. I loved coming up with a theme, taking photos, designing a card, and even stamping them. The problem is it can get very expensive. While I know family loves to receive the cards we thought this year we would spend the $100 is usually costs and spread some cheer to others. We used the money to buy toys for Toys for Tots, purchased $5 gift cards to give to a few people we regularly see at the stop light by our home, and also donated to the Alex Gruenburg Memorial Scholarship. He was a dear friend who was always thinking of others before himself.

That doesn’t mean that we didn’t do the photo shoot though!
