I pretty much finished addressing our Christmas cards this afternoon - there are always seems to be one or two addresses left to track down. And while it may have been convenient to address our Christmas cards while watching our customary show at night, I decided instead to address them at my little desk, to enjoy the glow of the Christmas tree nearby, the noise of the children running all about, and this Christmas music - which I just discovered and is the only Christmas music I seem to want to listen to - I love it so much.
This year we ordered our cards from Minted. I never tried them before, but was tempted by a $25 free credit. The packaging made me happy.
We went with postcards this year. I liked that you could have another picture on the back, and then we could use postcard stamps. The only downfall was that the U.S. Postal service does not make Christmas postcard stamps, so all my Christmas postcards went out stamped with an "Aloha" Hawaiian shirt. Oh well. We can't have it all just so.
So thankful simply to have a photo of our family, all together, in front of our home, and for friends near and far to send Christmas wishes to. Thank you for all your sweet wishes this week and welcome back - you all are so kind.
