Christmas is coming...

And that means it's time for Christmas cards. I LOVE getting cards. I especially love getting cards with pictures and I REALLY love getting cards with letters in them. I thought everyone did, but I have heard a lot of negative comments about the family newsletters or updates and how no one cares what your family has been up to. I find this odd?? If you don't care, why are they sending you a card? Maybe I am weird, but I send cards to family and friends and people that are important to us so I hope they actually care about what's been going on in our lives. I don't really enjoy those cards with every.little. detail in them or those that are like 3-4 pages long and I admit, I don't send a letter to everyone mainly because we send sooooo many cards and for some, a picture and a little handwritten note seems just fine to me. However, I enjoy reading highlights or fun and important things that are going on and I enjoy taking this time to reflect on what has happened with us. So I am just curious......what do you think? And be honest, since I really want to understand why some people despise the letter?

  1. I too like receiving hand written notes, pictures, and cards - all together is better. :)

    As far as the letters, not a fan but...

    Christmas is in 32 days! :)
