Christmas Cards Are Already Coming?

Man I feel so behind! I’ve already started to receive Christmas cards! Who are these people and how do they have THIS much time? When I got the mail yesterday I almost fell on the floor. I hadn’t even TAKEN THE PICTURE YET! LOL

That’s ok – those cards reminded me that I had some work to do. Yesterday evening, I threw the kids in front of the tree and promised them hot chocolate if they made it as painless as possible, and they thankfully did. I got three good shots and then put their pajamas back on.

I also ordered address labels last night because I am not going to spend another year writing out my address 6,000 times in a row. I used to have a stamp with my old house address which was awesome – I’ve been meaning to get another one for this house. I’ve only lived in it for 4 years! 🙂

Slow worker… as always.

When do you start to send out your holiday cards? And how many do you end up sending? I usually send to both my kids’ school classes because they get a kick out of seeing their friends on our wall. But it ends up adding at least an extra 40 people to the mix. Cr-azy.

  1. I’ll end up sending about 60-75 cards out. I haven’t ordered mine yet either! I’m sure we are not the only ones that are falling behind! I send cards to my kids doctors offices and also to the NICU at the hospital that I delivered the kids. Chasey spent 6 weeks in there during Christmas in 2004 and I saw how much the nurses loved getting cards with pictures of the NICU “graduates” as they have grown up!

  2. I don’t think I wound up sending out any last year! LOL! I am trying to make time this weekend, but we’ll see. I never do the photos, though. I absolutely despise having my picture taken, so a photo xmas card will NEVER happen. LOL

    On average we only send about 40 cards – we scaled way back.

  3. I’ve never done a Christmas card photo! And re: Christmas cards, I’ve been very off/on with the over the past few years. It seems like I do a bunch and get maybe two cards. Then the year I don’t send any out, I get a ton!
