My friend Stacy issued a "25 Days of Christmas" challenge.
To participate, post 25 ways you celebrate the Christmas season.
I love getting Christmas cards, and I really don't mind sending them. This year, though, probably 63% of the people I know moved. I've been on the hunt for current addresses, and instead of sending out cards in waves (as I probably should have done), I've held onto them to send all at once. Time is tick-tocking away. If you've moved and haven't gotten a request from me for your new contact information, or if we're new friends and I don't know where you live, or if you read this blog and want to be on my holiday card list (tee hee!), please e-mail me with your address.

As for the Christmas cards, I didn't think I had a suitable picture to use when it came time to print, so I drug the kids out for a photo session on an unusually cold Texas day. As if that wasn't bad enough, I didn't let them wear their coats. Then, I hauled them to Sam's Club and made them wait patiently while I clicked through thousands of pictures still on my memory card and fiddled with the various card designs. After all of that, I decided to scrap the pictures we'd just made and go with one from Hawaii.
