Almost Finished Writing My Christmas Cards

One of the tasks I set for myself was to do my Christmas cards this past weekend. I am almost finished. I am waiting for my holiday return address labels to be delivered. I had to get some addresses since several family members and friends have moved since last year. I put up my two fiber optic trees, I have my holiday tablecloth in place and my wreaths on my fence and doors. My next task is to get all the gifts that I have so far into gift bags and to order the several gifts that I have delivered, delivered. I will need to bake some snickerdoodles for the church cookie sale and then except for planning my Christmas menu, I will be in pretty good shape for the upcoming holidays. I feel pretty relaxed at this point.

Wow, you've done well. I've written 20 cards and now have to write letters to put in some of the ones I still have to do. I think you win our 'race'!

@BelleStarr I usually include a newsletter to. Some of my friends and family don't have computers so have no clue what I am up to.

@BelleStarr I might feel more festive in the morning after I pick up my Christmas Tale from Staples. I write it, daughter illustrates then e-mails it to Staples. I love holding the silly mini books! Then it will be time to start writing addresses on manilla envelopes...

@BelleStarr My cards are all out of country, but it never takes more than one week, so I still wait a few days. I know that my friends do not like to receive the cards too early.

I don't send cards since I live in Canada, the postage is outrageous, I send email cards to my friends and family away in the states, my friends here get then hand delivered. We haven't started Christmas yet...

@BelleStarr My mom always made snickerdoodles when I was a kid. My hubby and sons don't care for them so that's one I don't usually make. I like them though.
