What's up you ask?

Chickens and children, that's been covered.
BSA, noted.
I've been MIA, ya no good excuses come to mind.

That just leaves me with the reality that.....
It's Christmas letter time....
serious love/hate relationship happenin' there.

I feel let down when I get a Christmas card with no note and/or no picture so I feel compelled to include at lease one or the other, most times both. Last year I chose guilt over the stress and didn't do anything. I tried to tell myself, absence makes the heart grow fonder...but since the reality is that absence makes us forget, I have a two year limit on not making contact.

Soooo like it or not, it's that time again! I have made the executive decision that there we will no picture, at least not a recent one. We can't have a picture without our Miss M and she won't be here for awhile yet. There will be a little surprise, though. Since the only people who will ever read this will be people who will get a card I won't spoil it. 

Hey, bonus for me, it just dawned on me that because I've been MIA our note won't just be a blog recap...ya that's what I was planning all along! I love it when a plan comes together.

Looking forward to that card. My count of cards this year one Thanks Markham and Brittany. Probably speaks to the fact that I have not sent cards in a long time. Maybe soon though

ya know, i felt guilty that i didn't include a note in with my fabulous one of a kind designed christmas card... BUT for those that i didn't want to spend the money on, i e-mailed my card and included a note. so... if you get a card with no note, I LOVE YOU THE MOST. if you get an email with a note... YOU'RE NOT THAT IMPORTANT, but i love you still. how does that work for ya :)
