We made Hudson a photo album for Christmas, and it just arrived! I’m so over-the-moon with how it turned out and can’t stop flipping through it. I can’t wait to look through it together, with him on my lap, and tell him stories about all the people inside who love him.
We ordered it from Pinhole Press (the wonderful stationary line from whom we ordered our announcements, and one of our sponsors), their “Names and Faces” book, and it feels and looks wonderful. They are sharing gift ideas on their site as part of their “12 days of giving” and our book is featured in their idea gallery! You can see more images from Hudson’s present there (a safe gift to share pre-Christmas, as I’m confident he won’t look). Also, those who comment on each of the 12 days has a chance to win a gift certificate that day! (And though our idea posted yesterday, they let me know that you can still comment there and a second $50 winner will be announced here Friday.)
We’re also getting our Christmas cards from Pinhole Press (on my to-do list), but I think those will have to stay a surprise so that they’re a special delivery for our family. It will be our first time getting photo cards for the holiday, but I figure a new baby gives us license–right? Do you send out holiday cards?
