Christmas Card Decision
IComLeavWe: Join the Conversation
I'm excited about taking part in my first ICLW!
Well, a decision has been made. I posted about my Christmas card dilemma earlier and we have decided to do what we have done in the past. We just sent out store bought cards and a Christmas letter.
I struggled at first with what to put in the letter. It was a tough year with dealing with IF (again!). I thought we would be able to write about a new baby this year. But no, not this year either. So, we ended doing a highlights of the year, and included a few pictures in the letter. That took up enough space without having to write too much in the letter.
I take comfort in knowing that some people truly love getting those letters every year. Especially people we only see once a year, or are overseas that we never see. The other benefit of doing letters is that I can email the letter to overseas friends and family (since I am too cheap to send cards overseas).
Anyway, I completed all my cards and letters, and they were put in the mail on Monday and yesterday. It feels like a huge accomplishment!
Now I just need to deal with the snowstorm hitting MN today through Christmas! Travel is going to suck!
By the way, Happy ICLW!
