I think it depends, at least in my family.  We have relatives that have basically two houses in one- like one family lives in teh finished basement and the other lives on the ground level.    They would get two cards.  But for kids still living at home, they would be lumped into the whole family (like I was while I was in college and over 18- I never got my own, and I was OK with it).

I think it depends on what you feel is best.

@lilchicana:  I would address one card to ALL parties: “Smith, Johnson & Jones Families” – then you’ve covered your bases and saved yourself some postage. As an adult there have been some long time family friends who don’t have my address or my sisters address and my mom will get an invitation addressed to all three of us. It doesn’t offend me.

@lilchicana:  Your DH is funny… “meh I’m not really into the christmas card thing but since we are doing it anyways everyone needs to get their own.” Ha! If his family isn’t the card sending type I’m sure none of the three families are the type to save the cards which means you are mailing out 3 sets of cards that are all going to get thrown away after xmas. (I save my cards, hole punch them and put a claspy ring through them and have them in a box organized by year). i LOVE getting xmas cards =)

Every family will get one card. So if there were three families in the household, I’d address them to Smith family, Jones family and James family. My husband’s youngest brother just turned 18, but he still lives at home so I’m addressing the card to the family.

I think you should send sil and her family her own and then mil her own… so that household gets 2 cards instead of just one.
