How to order last-minute Christmas greeting cards online for $20 and pick them up in one hour

This year is my fifth time making Christmas greeting cards with my kids pictures. First year when my son Andre was four months we made an appointment at JC Penney, dressed him up in the cutest outfit, and spent about an hour trying different sets and props. Unfortunately, he slept through the 'photo shoot'. But we got a cute Christmas card, where you couldn't really see the background, just a nice card with a picture of a cute sleeping baby. I spent about $80 and I was happy to have my Christmas cards ready to send to friends and family.

The second Christmas, Andre was an active one year old. We went to Picture People, waited about thirty minutes, patiently tried to catch a still smiling moment of him with a cute snowmen. When the prints were ready, we chose the most decent picture, paid about $60 and were delighted to check it off the Christmas to do list.

The third Christmas my free time was very limited once again with an addition of a new baby Roman, who was just one month old. I put Roman in Andre's hands in front of our Christmas tree, snapped a few pictures, and ran to Walgreen's. There I had to wait in line for the computer to make my card. But in a couple hours they were ready for less than $30. I couldn't be happier.

The fourth Christmas I decided to make it even easier. I printed a bunch of pictures of our family in Disney World with Donald Duck and Christmas decorations. Then I simply bought Christmas cards with frames to insert the pictures. Everything cost about $30 bucks, and I didn't have to spend time in front of the store computer, trying to pick out a picture, a card background, and figure out what looks better.

This Christmas we have a third baby Anthony, who is five months. Of course, taking all three of them to a photo studio, and trying to time it, so that they are all in a good mood, smiling and awake at the same time, can be a challenge. Buying three Christmas outfits to wear once is out of the question, too. So I dressed them in three red shirts, put a white throw on the bed, and took a lot of pictures. Kids seem to be the most relaxed and still when they are laying down. Once I had my shot, I went to walgreens.com, uploaded my picture, tried a few different backgrounds, and ordered 40 Christmas cards for $20 to be picked up at the nearest Walgreen's in one hour!

If you are stressing out trying to finish Christmas shopping, do some Christmas activities, and you want to save time and money, then you can take your own pictures of your kids at home, when they are in a good mood, upload your favorite one online and pick up your cards in just an hour.
