We are sending out Christmas cards this year.
That is the miracle.
In the last 12 years since Scott and I have had children we have sent out
2 picture Christmas cards.
Don't judge me.
I mean...you can judge me....but I won't care.
I have kept the children alive for 12 years. That is my job.
Christmas cards are just icing on the cake as far as I can tell.
Every year we get Christmas cards from our friends and family
and I faithfully hang them up on a cute wire picture holder and smile at them all year long.
I always think, "We should send out a Christmas card."
And I think, "Maybe next year."
Next year has arrived, people!
Can I get a hallelujah? Can I get an amen?
My friend, Bonnie, who is a spectacular professional photographer took
our picture about 50 times and some of them the children are actually smiling in....
at. the. same. time.
Let's wipe a tear of joy from the eye, even now.
Last night I stuffed and addressed and stamped a stack of cards.
It was a new experience. I decided I better give a blog heads up
to my family and friends, lest they pass out from surprise when it arrives in the mail.
Keep the smelling salts close, people.
And as for my faithful internet friends and readers whom I hold dear.
Here is a bloggy Christmas greeting from me to you.
Cherish it. You won't see another one until my kids are in high school.
Joy to the World! And Merry Merry Christmas, friends!!!
