When I did my Save the DAtes I just wrote “The Smith Family” to signify it is intended for the entire family.  I did make sure to also tell my friends with Children that the children are also invited.

I think the timeline is fine especially because your wedding is around the holidays, it’ll give people more time to plan.

For us when we were inviting the whole family we just put The Smith Family and if it was the husband and wife we just but Mr & Mrs Smith, generically speaking.

Sending the STD early is definitely a good idea for a December wedding, but I’m not sure if it makes a difference for the actual invite. People are either already planning on coming, or they aren’t, and adding extra time isn’t always necessary. But it’s your call. I don’t think it’s really an etiquette issue, so much as its a personal preference issue. Whatever makes you happy and calm! 🙂
