Christmas Cards

Dear Friends,

I will not be sending out a Christmas letter this year. This is not so unusual since I didn't send Christmas letters last year or the year before...or the year before that. It's not because I didn't write them, I did. I wrote you all letters. I got family pictures and I even gathered your addresses. I just never mailed the letters. For three years.

I've got the family pictures again and I'll gather up addresses. Some of you have given up on me and have stopped sending me Christmas cards and letters. I'm really sorry that I've been so flaky. However, I have decided that since I keep this blog and I'm now on Facebook, that I no longer need Christmas letters.

I mean, if you follow the blog, you've heard about Wendell's promotion, funny things the kids have said and my work to become a motivational speaker. Do you really want to hear about it again? I didn't think so.

And if you're my Facebook friend, then you hear everything from what I'm making for dinner to how creepy I find men in dress slacks and naked ankles. (Shudder.) So, really, you're up to date.

The only thing I don't do well is post pictures. So I'll send you pictures that say "Happy Holidays" on them and have a picture of our family. Maybe I'll even include my blog address, if you'd like to hear me rant. But probably not since that will take too much effort.

If you want a pic, feel free to email me your address (

Your Lame Friend

The 'email' link on your post takes me to blogger msg that says 'the page doesn't exist.' Just thought you'd want to know. : )

I'm laughing so hard! You express many of my thoughts (well, maybe not the naked ankle thing...). Maybe, just maybe we'll get the picture thing out this year!

It won't let me use the link to email you, but I would love a family pic! I don't think I have your email. Mine is TaraM22atgmaildotcom. Email me with your address and I'll send you mine!

I'm with you about Christmas letters. If you have a blog that you keep up, people who care what you are up can check in. I love getting Christmas cards with my friends family pictures though. If they don't keep a blog, I love to read the letters and see what they are up to. I have an album that I put the cards/pictures/letters in every year and it is fun to watch my friends families grow and grow up.
