Holiday greetings

January 18th, 2004 · No Comments

I think this week we finally received the last of the Christmas cards in the mail. While I like creating our own cards , I find the fun comes in receiving them from others. Catching up on all the news and seeing the family pictures are great. We still hear from high school friends and people we loved in all the places we’ve lived as adults, from the East Coast to California. The girls are still enjoying going through our basket of cards, spreading them out on the kitchen countertop, admiring the designs and words, looking at the kids in the photos, asking “is this one my age?”. Lots of accomplishments, a few new addresses, some great vacations, one break-in (sad) and lots of babies. I think we learned about 4 new babies, 3 that have already arrived and one on the way this spring. And the first time to get a glimpse of a few wee ones in the family photos. It was great to see some new faces and some familiar smiles! The cards bring blessings that last the whole year and we’re already looking forward to receiving the news of 2004…..thank you to all who wrote!
