I have to admit that I'm a little worried that sending cards is a dying tradition because we've only received two thus far this year. Of course we haven't sent ours out yet so maybe everyone else is running late like we are!
We got our family pictures taken by a professional photographer in our church at the beginning of November. We expected it to be cool but it was almost 20C (70F) so we're all in short sleeves! In the Fall! That's basically unheard of here. (And I can't wait to show you more photos from our session. We ended up ordering twelve different poses!)
Then I sent Dave to Costco yesterday to pick up our cards and I got to go to the dentist. When we all got home I eagerly opened up the box to see our cards and saw only envelopes. They'd forgotten to give us the second box of our order which actually contained the cards. Argh.
I called Costco and then Dave rushed back to Costco. Did I mention it was twenty minutes before closing and it takes us twenty minutes to drive there? Yeah. They promised to let him in and offered to refund our money. So yes, despite it taking two round trips to Costco in the same evening, we did eventually get our cards.
Then Dave drove to a place where he could scan our cards so I could link up this morning. In exchange I put both kids to bed. Ha!
For those of you who have been reading here for some time you will know that I am Christian, Dave is Jewish, and we are raising our kids in both faiths. So for the last few years we have sent out enough cards that we order a Christmas one and a more generic "Season's Greetings" one.
So without further ado, here are our cards:
Some of you will still be receiving these in the mail so pretend to be surprised when you open the envelope, okay?!
Merry Christmas! Happy (belated) Chanukah! And whatever holiday you celebrate at this time of year, may it be a good one.
