Well, I am a little late posting this, as Keeley did not sleep at all yesterday (unless 5 minutes in the car counts, at 9:30 am before 10 am church, or from town to my parents house, which I don’t think it does).. so basically a 12 hour day for our munchkin, she slept on our way home around 7:30, a quick wake up for a diaper, and until 530 this morning, another hour, and then up for a while and now back down, even the doorbell ringing didn’t wake her up, needless to say, since we got home so late after our Christmas festivities, I uh, forgot it was Monday!
Faye at Summit Musings is our hostess and she says: Take a look at the cards, letters, and photos that you’ve received this year and share them. Possible categories: Best All Around Card, Most Meaningful Message, Best Kid/Pet Photo, Best Family Newsletter, Most Humorous Card. And if you don’t do holiday greetings by mail, how do you send out your messages?
Well, we didn’t send out any cards last year, and so it seems several people have ignored us. Sorry, we had a newborn. This year I sent out 99% of what I had left from a couple of years ago, when I hand stamped them, a few I have yet to finish, all my volunteer work has taken up what time I did have for cards! I did receive a few this year. Next year, we may just send out a letter and picture.
Best kid picture: The Kinners. Farm kid in overalls next to his family farm sign and the photo card has a ’52 Ford truck hauling a Christmas tree. Awesome.
Best Family Letter: The Wolfmeyers. I love hearing about what their kids are learning or doing.
Neatest Card: Grandma Cotton. They ordered them pre-printed with their names on it, and it’s a fold out card, and it sort of ‘welcomes’ you to their home, and she took the time to hand write a note, which is nice.
Saddest Card: From my friend Jackie, her dog died, her other dog is sick, her brother died, and they live in fear of her husband losing his job. Overall, not a good time for them.
Prettiest Card: Goes to my mom, who snagged some Thomas Kinkade cards, with a sleigh being pulled by a horse up to a well-lit church through the sparkling snow. Hers also has the best message: Wishing you the comfort of His love, the joy of His salvation, and the peace of His presence. It really lifted me up today.
Here is an image from TK website, this is the image that the card was made from.
WHY do all the cards have glitter?I swear I won’t get rid of it for a month, it’s everywhere! Well, that’s all I’ve got for you! See you next Monday?!?
