Dress: Motherhood Maternity, Similar, Smilar | Boots: Frye | Scarf: Old, Similar | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Bracelet: Kendra Scott

Growing up, my family always sent a Christmas photo so it only seemed natural to keep up the tradition once Austin and I got married. This year I was extra excited to send one because I could show off the bump. I knew I wanted to find a dress that showed off the bump and this cute, striped number did just that. I love the comfy, stretchy material and side ruching, which allows for growth of the expanding tummy. One challenge I have had when buying maternity clothes is trying to guess how large my stomach will grow. I have read that with multiples, maternity clothes that typically fit a singleton mother for the entire pregnancy don’t always work the entire pregnancy of a mama with twins. Because of this, I make sure to buy items with plenty of room for growth.:)

This year I found a new company to produce our Christmas card, Mixbook. I decided to go with them because they had so many adorable designs that gave you the option to incorporate multiple photos onto your card. We selected one photo for the front of the card and three for the back. There are many customization options (change text color, resize photo, move text around, etc.), which I did not find with other companies. Lastly, they were one of the most affordable options with a great 50% off sale. When the cards arrived, I could not have been more pleased! The quality was amazing and it’s my favorite Christmas card we have sent yet.:) I definitely plan to use Mixbook for our birth announcements too. In fact, they even have twin announcements. I already have spotted a few designs that I love (Option 1, Option 2, Option 3). I would love to hear what your favorite birth announcements are!
