Christmas Cards December 5, 2008

Hidey Ho I have already received TWO Christmas cards!! One of them had money in it. Ha!! Sweet!!

So the money is for the kids, but still — how fun is that?

I love to do Christmas cards. For the past few years we have done the picture postcard kind with pix of the kids on them and a nice little “Merry Christmas” message. Simple. Easy. Cheap. Yes, cheap — if you know where to order from. They can even be cheaper than a box O’ cards from Hallmark. Yep. And if you really know what you’re doing you won’t even have to sign them because they get printed on the back with your closing info — “Love, Rich, Heidi, Brianna (4), Jeremy (2 1/2) PS: baby due in Jan ’09” — kind of thing.

My friend Ginger has a hysterically funny post on her blog. Please go see it. I laughed so daggone hard that I cried. Holy smokes that has to be the funniest thing I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a long, long time. If you don’t “get it”, when you view the last picture look to the right in the background. Freakin’ funny stuff! Ha!!!!!

So do you have a funny Christmas card story? Or any Christmas card story?

I love Christmas. I love looking at the lights and the decorations and wrapping presents and shipping them off and getting another card in the mailbox. I love it all. This is my favorite time of year! Joy!!!


Share your Christmas
card story here. Don’t be shy.

    My wife and I like to wait until late to send Christmas cards (like 2 weeks or so before Christmas) and we send some to people who didn’t send us one so they’ll have a reaction along the lines of “Oh no, we got a Christmas Card from them and didn’t send them one. Hurry, we’ve got to get one in the mail TODAY.”

    Mean? Yes.

    Funny? Yes.

    Joe: That’s mean! LOL! I’m the one going “oh crap I didn’t send the Blackmon’s a Christmas card — better get on that — thankfully I ordered extra picture postcards!”.

    Awww.. man. That was a good post. I love impromptu moments that have a way of bringing about laughter.

    I want to name that dog. And since its Christmas time, maybe he should be named Lincoln… your remember those toys called Lincoln Logs? Well now we know who makes them… Lincoln the Labrador.

  4. Heidi…so, I guess there’s still that your card to us is in the mail?

    Tony: Lincoln Logs!!! ROFL!!! I almost bought some of those today for my kids until I remembered how they would end up all over my house. I decided to leave them for the next family instead.

    Steve: Yeah, it’s in the mail and if you don’t get one please remember to blame the post office for losing it.
