Actually, if you are writing the card to "The Jenkins," you wouldn't use an apostrophe at all. The same way with "The Franks." You would only use an apostrophe if you are using it in a posessive way ..... like the Jenkins' cat or the Franks' van. That make sense????

Both wrong. There is no apostrophe, because this is a plural, not a possessive noun. It makes it easier to just write "To the Jenkins family." Otherwise, the plural would be "To the Jenkinses." I modern times, that sounds a bit old fashioned.
Same is to for the last name Frank -- no apostrophe! Just write "To the Franks" or "To Mr and Mrs Frank."
