Behind the scenes.
Oh the stories I could tell.
For now, I'll just start and end with this years card.
These are four (out of 5) of my offspring who don't have families of their own yet. These are the four who still have to get their photo taken for THE CHRISTMAS CARD. My eldest, she has her own family now and she sends out her own card with her family on it. She gets to experience the Christmas card debacle and the havoc it wreaks for herself now. I know she will find it just as priceless as I have over the past 34 years. I always told her, "Do as I say, not as I do," but apparently she didn't listen.
I've sent out photos with our entire family including my eldest and her family but, lets just say, I can only accomplish that miraculous feat very rarely. It's a boon just getting the 4 yahoos pictured above to sit and smile for the camera.
Okay everybody say, "Happy Birthday Jesus!"
Seriously guys? Give a mom a break here. Show me the love, so we can call it a day.
Are we done yet?
From our home to yours,
Happy Christmas and Blessed Holidays to all!
