Christmas Card Help

I know, it seems a bit early to be writing about this, but all of the good deals on Christmas cards are going on right now and I really want to get in on them. I always seem to have a creative block when it comes to coming up with a good Christmas card. They usually turn out well, but I freak out until I can figure things out!
My main problem is coming up with cute picture ideas for the monkeys. I can take an okay picture. I am by no means a photographer or "talented" in photography. I really don't know what half of the buttons on my camera do.
Another hard part is getting in the Christmas picture mood considering our highs are still in the mid 80's.
So please, help me figure something out. I don't know if I want the typical kids on the beach picture (though we have not done that one yet).

We have these big red Christmas balls that we bought at Target when the boy was a baby. We dig those out, put their new outfits on (i bought them this week) and take their picture with the balls in front of the fireplace.

I so like the UK version where you just buy 50 million cheap and tacky cards and have done with it. I don't have the time or the energy to deal with personalised cards.
