I remember not so long ago, December 1st was the date many of my friends as well as myself, sent out our cards. So, in many past years, by the third, I would have received at least a dozen. I run a bit behind myself. For most years past, we took a picture of the girls on Thanksgiving that would be made into our cards. It became our sweet little tradition that we enjoyed as much as my family & friends that appreciated seeing the girls grow up.
Some of my favorites...
|my Goodness, they have grown up!|
E~ "Mom... we don't want to do a picture this year."my head~ whatttttttttttttt?
me~ ohh, well, uhm okay, but why?
E~ "It's just, well, we grew up, it's weird now."my head~ noooooooooooooo! It's not about you guys...its's about the family & friends that love you & never see you. It's bout Dad & I being so proud about you, and want to show you off!!!
me~ "ohh, okay, are you sure? You know these pictures mean so much to alot of folks".
E~ laughing..." no, Mom, it's you that they mean alot to. How about you let me take a picture of the Dogs to send. Everyone loves seeing the Dogs just as much."my head~ YES! It means alot to me! Do it for ME!!!
Me~ "Okay Sweetie. I guess so"
Here is this years winning picture cards.
I am sad that so many people stopped doing cards. I too have made cuts. I now send about a forth of what I use to send, but I still send a lot.
Especially to those I love but just haven't had the opportunity to see or even contact. I love my family and friends.
I love getting the cards. Especially the ones with the pictures and the silly letters. I LIKE that too much info that some complain about.
I must be signing off now. I need to address my cards (yes I do that by hand too).
Feel free to send me your Christmas cards! I will appreciate them♥
