Christmas Cards


As I wandered around photo websites the other day wondering what I should do with our Christmas cards this year, I wondered what exactly we did last year. I know I used a shot of Hawaii that my mom wanted to use so she used a different one and shouldn't have. I know I had more than 1 picture. But I couldn't remember what else.

A hop, skip, and a jump to my very cluttered scrap booking desk (which I don't scrapbook at, it's turned into more of a junk heap) and moving a few old clothes I keep meaning to give away (btw, bro and dad, I bought Juice new ties and he doesn't like them...any interest? Green and gray, they are very nice looking and both long)...now I've used parentheses so much I've lost my place. Ah, yes, I dug through the pile on my desk and came across my box of extra cards from last year. It was nice to see exactly what I put on the card last year. It's also very nice to know that I have a bunch of stamps left over from last year. Sadly, I do have to get a bunch of 2 cent stamps to cover the postal hike. But still, 2 cents is better than 41 cents.

Also in the box were the Christmas cards we received last year. I had originally intended to scrapbook them all together, but never got around to it. I had a ball going over the cards, and seeing how much things have changed. How much babies have grown. But it also strikes me that life is full of a lot of the same. And that sameness is nice. It's nice to have some stability and just enjoy life as it comes to you.

Christmas cards are all ordered and will be sent out hopefully the first week in December. Juice is in Chicago in a week and I will probably take those long evenings by myself and address envelopes. So if you want a card and haven't gotten one in past years, shoot me an email at safirecat (at) gmail (dot) com. I will also be contacting those of you who I do not have an address for.

Christmas is coming, but I am looking forward to Thanksgiving this week. Christmas doesn't seem like Christmas without the snow.



  1. With the weather still in the mid eighties to high 70's it doesn't seem like November here! It is supposed to get cooler this week but I'll believe it when I feel it!

  2. ok, so you still didn't say what you decided to do for christmas cards! what did you decide on, and HOW did you decide? where did you look, etc? i am having the similar dilemma :o) can you tell???

  3. You have things all together!! I think I am going to do my Christmas shoot with the girls tomorrow -- wish me luck!! Can't wait to see what you came up with!
