Christmas Cheer.

For our family Christmas Eve is officially tonight.  This is my favorite moment of Christmas - the time just before the night sky darkens the day leading to Christmas Eve.  Tonight we'll be cuddling together to watch a new Christmas movie, drink hot chocolate, open a few presents, and share in a traditional shepherds supper.
For the last two days I've been putting together this clever (or so I thought) card to send to all of you, when my husband informed me moments ago that it was incredibly hokey and he would roll his eyes at it if he received it in the mail.  After much contemplation over what exactly was wrong with "hokey" things, and thoughts around when my husband turned into such a critic of Christmas cards, littered with thoughts of muffled bitterness at his lack of help in the matter, I decided to just share a digital version of it with you all rather than pay to send out a card my husband wasn't 100% behind.  I hope you all have a wonderful new year and holiday season.  And I pray that your eyes don't get stuck in the back of you head from rolling them too hard.



p.s. If you point out that this is actually a week late, I will not be your friend anymore.

Merry Christmas.

Tiffany, I think that this was a most clever Christmas greeting, despite what Dustin thinks! I hope that you had a lovely time with your family and that your Christmas will be your best one yet! Are you all staying healthy? Many people have respiratory and stomach ailments here, so it is not a terribly wonderful time. I have had a cold and/or strep throat for about a month now!! I am sure it has nothing to do with full-time substitute teaching at our grade school. :)

Blessings,

Julie L.

Merry Christmas! Pretty much anything with a photo of those boys on it will get an A+ in my book.

Your card is AWESOME! I can't quit giggling. I'm printing it out and adding it to my Christmas card album...that is now officially two years behind. :)
