We all need a family that sends an honest Christmas card in our lives.
Do you send out a family Christmas card or holiday card every year? I used to send them out religiously which meant getting all my kids in coordinating outfits and stressing as I hoped and prayed that they’d all smile at the same time and no one would hit the other and they’d stay still long enough to just get the damn pic!
I’m pretty sure every parent in the world can relate, but in the past few years I’ve stopped sending cards out. Life has gotten too busy to coordinate a photo shoot and with so much social media available it’s just as easy to share pictures and send holiday wishes that I don’t feel obligated to send Christmas cards anymore, (except to my grandmother!)
Even though I’ve gotten lazy and don’t send my own cards, I love to receive them, and I actually love it when you get those little letter updates in them as well. It’s kind of interesting to read what each family member has been up to throughout the year even if we know some of the updates are a bit embellished.
