The Stanley family from Charlotte, North Carolina has it all figured out. When it comes to their annual Christmas card, that is.
For the past five years, Mom, Dad, two brothers, a new little sister (this year) have mailed out a hilarious and crazy Christmas card to friends and family.
Jonathan Stanley said, “The very first time we tried to take a “traditional” Christmas card photo we had hilariously bad results.” So why not do something different.
Jonathan added, “We were new parents with a one-year-old and everything went wrong – baby cried the whole time, it was windy, the lighting kept changing, you name it. If 2 of us looked okay, the third one blinked. We laughed so hard at how bad the photos were that we decided just to send them out as is and our family loved it. From there the tradition was born – instead of trying to send perfect cards, we would send something that represented the chaos of parenting.”
Scroll through the Stanleys’ cards and you’ll see the evolution of the family and the laughs.
Can’t wait to see next year’s version.
