Christmas Cards: Yes or No?

I had lunch with two of my oldest, dearest friends today. (I love that I have friends that I've known since junior high. They get me.) The topic of whether or not to send Christmas cards came up.

Postage is expensive. The cards are expensive. Writing a short, interesting letter to go along with the card is always a challenge. It seems like one more thing for a busy mom to do during a busy season. But, I love getting them.

Each year we put all of the photo cards in an album. We've been doing it almost nine years now. It's so fun to look back and see how much all of the families have grown and changed. I don't think it would be the same without ours at the start of each new year.

Are you sending cards this year? Why or why not?

  1. I didn't get them out last year...maybe the year before....I don't know. One year I just took a break. But, I really want to get one out this year. So....Yes, I am sending them....but there are years I may not. I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting them. It's part of what makes the holidays so fun!
