There are two things you should know about me before you continue reading today’s post… I like real, day to day pictures and I am such a procrastinator.
I feel like such a slacker every year when it comes time to mail out Christmas cards. How about you? Do you get them mailed out in a timely manner or are yours more like New Years cards?
Over the weekend Cookie the elf left a pile of construction paper for the kids and I to make our annual chain countdown. On the first day, he’d written “Do Christmas Cards!” (Haha. Thanks, Elf!) So that’s what we did.
We spent the morning working on our chain & coming up with the advent things we wanted to do each day to help pass the day and countdown til Santa comes. You should have heard half the things these crazy kids came up with. “Draw hippopotamuses with Santa hats!” (That’s what is written on December 16th’s chain).
Then once the chain was finished up, I gathered up our Christmas card supplies and had the kids get their coloring supplies. I’d ordered them a few cards of their own to color and pass out to whomever they wanted to.
So once I got them settled and they figured out who they wanted to give cards to (they even did one up for their bus driver which melted my heart that they thought of him), I busted out my little black address book, my phone so that I could text people for their address because my poor black book is always getting edited… Joy of having a bunch of Military friends, ha! Everyone moves… often. This year’s cards were SO easy for me to get knocked out because I’d ordered stamps, return address labels, and cards (with envelopes) all from Tiny Prints. One stop shopping right there.
This might be the earliest I’ve gotten them mailed out.
So, tell me… when do you mail out your Holiday cards?
