Holiday progress

Writing-wise? :lmao:

Holiday-wise? My Christmas cards are stamped and ready to go. And I feel like a total scumbag. I had the “Merry Christmas from the Stacey family” preprinted, and I printed labels for the envelopes. The only handwritten ones were for foreign lands (and poor Anna always gets Christmas cards from me for New Years, but this doesn’t surprise her *g*) and addresses than ran over the label template. I’m so ashamed, but it was that or no cards.

The short kid’s reaction to his mother’s lack of Martha-ness?

(Actually, we were taking pictures for the Christmas card *cough-yesterday-cough* and I took this one just as the power went out.)

Next year I’m going to handwrite every Christmas card. In November.

    Stress ye not, kiddo. I don’t know anyone who keeps a list of people who sent Christmas cards late or pre-printed, in order to curse them later…..And if I did, I wouldn’t WANT to know them. :wink:

    We love you anyway. :love:
