Apparently we missed the memo. As you can see from our smorgasborg of Christmas cards that we have so beautifully displayed on our pantry door, sending a picture or you, your loved ones, and/or your pets trumps sending an actual paper card with a hand written message in it.
Am I old fashioned? I think so. Getting photo cards is great, don't get me wrong, but I guess I'm stuck in the 1990's by suggesting that cards should have a hand written component to them. And, hey, maybe I'm just jealous that I missed the memo. And most everyone else got it.
All of that being said, I was really looking forward to having a baby because I knew that we would finally be able to send out photocards. So, I guess we didn't need to get pregnant just to send them out, afterall! And, I am slowly realizing that photocards are taking over the world (just as fast and feverishly as kudzu has) and they are personal - - just photos rather than words. Hey, a photo is worth a 1,000 words, right? And I know that I've never written 1,000 words in any Christmas card. Perhaps I've had it backwards all along.
