I also (finally) got my hubby to sign all the Christmas cards – the Little Princess signed them all first and did an outstanding job, so now maybe I’ll actually be able to get them in the mail tomorrow. I haven’t decided if I’m going to start doing a newsletter – I’ve always thought they were pretty cheesy (no offense to my sister and cousin, who sends them out each and every year faithfully). I ran across a blog earlier in the week that cracked me up A Letter to Xander – she was participating in an event that was sort of ‘mocking’ the Christmas newsletter thing and boy, did people come up with some hilarious newsletters! I’m actually thinking of creating one like that to send out as a joke…we’ll see!
Meanwhile, I do make sure to include pictures of the Little Princess from the past year -I picked out all my favorite ones and uploaded them to print via the RiteAid website…think I made a mistake, though – I chose the ‘Today’ feature, where you get to pick up your pictures in an hour, but I also added to that order some of the cute 2009 calendars that can take 2-5 days. Arrrgh! Should have put that in as a separate order. If I had, I would have the pictures in hand all ready to insert into the Christmas Cards…I envisioned myself stuffing envelopes tonight…now I have to wait and call RiteAid tomorrow and see if I messed up and won’t be getting my cards out until the end of the week. Not a huge issue, except that 99% of them are going out to Washington State, and with USPS being so slow this time of year, they might be lucky if they get their cards in time for New Year! Ah well, live and learn…maybe next year I’ll be on time with my Christmas cards! (snicker!)
