The back of the card features her three children sharing a playful moment and also highlights the quote, "All creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all." Jenna said it comes from a Christian hymn and is Poppy's favorite.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry put together a Christmas card based on an illustration of a family photo taken by Meghan's mother as they settle into their new life in California. The card shows Harry holding 20-month-old son Archie, with a head of red hair, in front of a play house while Meghan sits cross-legged beside them. It was shared by the Instagram account for Mayhew, an animal charity where the duchess is a royal patron.
