Christmas Card Confessional

I'm not sending out Christmas cards this year. There. I said it, so it is done. I'm guessing this is the first time in, oh, twelve years, that I haven't done cards. I don't even really have a good reason, really. First, I couldn't get a good picture of the boys (they're squirmy). So a few days passed by. Then, a couple of weeks. Then, I tried some more pictures. Still nothing. Then, it kind of slipped my mind, with all the other holiday preparation and such. Late last week, I began to panic. This week ended up being consumed with coughing, boogery noses, doctor visits, pink eye, ear infections, sleepless nights, and lots of grouchiness. At some point I realized I was far too stressed about Whether Or Not I Could Get Cards Done, so I made the executive decision to just throw in the towel. So, there you have it.

Merry Christmas Heather! Tis the season and the best gift we can give ourselves is the gift of "no guilt" so let go of any guilt you have over the Christmas cards and enjoy your family! I love ya, hug and kiss everyone for me. Love, Lee

Do not worry about the cards! We all have your wonderful blog to see your photos and catch up on your life so don't feel like anyone is missing out. holidays should be "guilt free" in my opinion.
hope everyone feels better soon!

Glad to read that someone else has "slacked" a little this year. If you haven't read my latest post, you should. I think it will make you feel better for skipping the cards this year :) Happy Holidays!
