Christmas Cards

I'm feeling a bit unloved over here in Roseville, Michigan!

I always look forward to Christmas cards...seeing how people have changed over a year, hearing about how families celebrate, and just being reminded of all the people that think of us. By this time in December, I usually have over a dozen cards on my wall with at least one or two coming in daily.

This year, we have 5. JUST FIVE!! I'm wondering if the economy is stopping people from investing 100 in paper and they just aren't sending cards.

Or maybe people are just running late...like me. Our cards are in the process of being printed. I promise you that they are coming! And hopefully you'll have them before 2009! ;)

Dad and I were thinking the same thing , we have 4 cards right now which is real low, and this was the first yr. we received and email Christmas letter. I am assuming it's the economy, everyone is feeling the pinch :( take care Love Mom K

I've only received 2 and have yet to send mine out, so don't feel bad. I do need your address again though, so send it my way and I'll be sending a card your way soon!

Ya know, I was thinking the same thing. We only have three. One was hand delivered and the other two are from the older generation. I think it's a combo of the economy and the fact that Christmas is creeping up a little too fast this year. I gotta get started on mine darn it. I have the most perfect picture now. ;)
Just to get them on a card and printed and in the mail. Oh geez.

I couldn't agree more. We have a total of 3!! I have to say Lexi is to blame on our lateness... she wasn't cooperative for pictures and I had to take them myself today! Our cards are on the way!!

We have only gotten a couple family ones as well. And I know I cut back on what I sent out as well and even thought of not sending any out too. And we usually get quite a few from different businesses and have only gotten one of those as well.

My sentiments exactly. We have gotten about half (or less) of our normal take. I am still waiting hopefully though for the days that we get 5 or 6 at a time. Maybe next week : )
