christmas cards

not only have they been ordered, they arrived on my doorstep yesterday! No expedited shipping costs or mailing them out on December 23rd hell I even have the holiday stamps in my possession. Can I really be that organized this year? It is really a wonder we still get Christmas cards at all as last year was the first time in 4 years I had sent them out. I finally just gave in and send out the photo cards, honestly people just want to see how much the boy has grown since last year and who needs idle chit chat on a card? Personally I am a huge fan of the Christmas letter. I love them! I used to pour over the ones my parents & grandmother received whether or not I knew the sender because they are just hysterical.It must be a generational thing because we only get maybe 1 a year and only from a friend of my folks. My own father apparently did a letter several times, he might still I can never get a hold of one to read it!

I am not ready...please tell me it's not almost Christmas. I'll probably have my 8 year old draw some Christmas cards. It's obviously too late to order them now. :)

I prefer Christmas Manifesto or State of the Union Address..

With that being said.. you have them, will you mail them?

Mine are being held hostage by the USPS!!! GRRRRR! And I did custom this year and everything. Thwarted in my plans to get ahead.
