Christmas Card Look Book for Babies and Toddlers

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I’m still spending time with visiting family (as I’m sure many of you are as well) but I wanted to pop in and quickly re-post an idea I had last year.  I get a little sad having to take down all the Christmas stuff and this is one way I’ve found to extend the magic a little longer…

 

I’m always torn this time of year about exactly what to do with all the lovely Christmas cards we’ve accumulated.  I feel bad throwing them out but I’m also trying to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle and stacks of cards lying around doesn’t exactly gel with the philosophy.  So this year I’ve decided to take the cards from friends and family that don’t live nearby and put them into a look book for S and C.  It will be a great way to remind them of the people that love them from afar.  What do you do with your Christmas card stack?

I used to do that when the boys were younger, it was a nice quiet book for church. I was about to throw the pictures out, you posted this just in time!

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. That is a great idea. Unfortunately we only got on photo card this year from people we don’t really know : )
I have made photo family books for L though and she loves them!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I love all the ideas you have posted on yours. I would love to make the little pizza shop activity for my kids. I think they would really like it.

I love it!! I usually just put them in a binder with clear pages or an album but I like the kids book!

That is a great idea. I packed mine away in the Christmas bins to look at when I take out the decorations next year. I like your idea better :)
