2011/335: Makin’ A List…

Is it me, or has this year flown by? I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas again already!
I did this last year (although I didn’t ask on the blog) and would like to do a little Christmas around the country/world again this year, because it was SO much fun the first time around.
So, my dear blogging friends, if you are a regular commenter, and you would like to receive a Holiday card from me, please let me know in the comments, and I will send you an e-mail, asking for your mailing address. Or, if you already have my e-mail address, you can just go ahead and e-mail me your mailing address.
I’m really looking forward to doing this again, although I have no idea what kind of card it will be. I’m hoping to torture have the girls pose for me with their new Santa hats, so I don’t have to come up with a Plan B.

Here’s a few photos and outtakes from the last few years…

Top photo (and my all-time favorite) was from 2005, and before I got my first DSLR
The photos in the second row were from 2006, and I had a really hard time, choosing just two of them for this collage. There were so many funny ones!
The photo on the bottom left was from 2007, and the girls braved the bitter cold (it was around freezing) without a jacket.
The photo on the bottom right was from 2008, and yes, I did use it for our Christmas card that year! It will probably look familiar to some of you!

2010/352: Christmas Around The World

One of my favorite things in the weeks before Christmas, is sending Christmas cards to friends and family. Seems that many people don’t send cards anymore, or they send e-cards or e-mails. I like sending the traditional cards, by snail mail, and know I put a smile on someone’s face when they open their mail box and find a Christmas card.
This year was a little more special than the years before, because my Christmas card list grew by a few blog friends. Not only from right here in the United States, but around the world, like Denmark and Australia. It was so nice to include them this year, and maybe by next year my Christmas card list will grow by a few more friends?
