christmas card confessions

IMG_7096
Okay, so please tell me I am not the only one that hasn't sent out Christmas cards....right?
There are so many different, super cute, cards out there now. I love looking at all the neat designs! However, I haven't even started! Sigh....
For the past couple years I have had the best intentions. Last year I even made them all, and sent them with Adam to mail from his work. Well he mailed them without putting stamps on them, so they were returned back to us on Christmas eve! To late to remail them! This year with everything going on, I just haven't found the time to really dive into to all things Christmas. Sure my lights and tree are up, but along with my cards, I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet! Yikes! So I am thinking I may not do cards this year. Is that horrible? Honestly?
However if I did do them...I would totally choose this one...

from doodle bug dezigns
OR this one

from tiny prints

Are those not the cutest!?

Okay so I must share these adorable little boots with you all! Because my awesome mother in law is not nearly the procrastinator that I am, she already bought and sent the boys Christmas gifts. Well this gift she bought while she was here during Easton's first hospitalization, and I love them. Seriously. They are real sheepskin and so deliciously soft and warm. They fit him perfectly and he always wears these. You would never guess, in a million years, where we got them................
Bass Pro Shops!
Okay so seriously, I had never been to this store, and dreaded going really, so Adam decided we should go. I though it was going to be only a hunting/fishing "man" place! Ha! It is, but it is so much more! They sell everything! It is like Walmart, but for "out doorsy" people. Who knew we could find such cute stuff! Also Santa is going to be there! Well just to let y'all know we now go there all the time, and it is Austin's favorite place in the whole world. He has almost every lure they make. This child has started young!
Aren't these the most adorable little shoes!

Oh Easton, you are so cute, but you really need to learn how to tie a scarf! :)

So tell me, have you already mailed you cards? If so did you buy, print, or hand make yours? If you haven't yet, what are you planning on doing?

ps. I am still waiting on hearing back from the Doctor. Of course I will update when I know!

Oh, those are cute! I just bought mine from the store this year. And I do not think it is horrible that you wont be sending out cards. With everything you are going through, I think it is totally understandable.

I don't blame you I wasn't gona send them out this year until I saw an offer for free ones. We had a picture card that I used a code to get 50 of them with envelopes for free even shipping. All I paid for was postage to mail them to my friends & family. We mailed our cards the day before Thanksgiving because we wanted people to get them at the end of that week.

I'm working on adddressing mine -- so glad to hear I'm not the only 'delinquent' out there who hasn't sent them out yet! :)

Wow - with every thing you have going on Christmas cards should not be a worry. :) I'm sure every one gets it.

I am right now folding our Christmas letters and stuffing envelopes. We do the whole camera-on-tripod craziness to get the entire family in a picture then we design our own cards. :) It's fun, but I really had to get movin to get it all done...

I started creating my News Letter early in October. I finished them last Friday and they went in the mail this past Monday. As a matter of fact I am going to scan it in so that I can share it with everyone now that my "mailing" recipients have received them. Check back for it on my blog...

However... with everything that you have had going on, I must say that you should not even remotely feel bad that you haven't sent them out. It's just a piece of paper. :)

I agree with everybody. You have too many things in your mind to worry about xmas cards. Everybody understands.

This is the first year we sent our xmas cards. We took a picture of the girls with Santa and then printed the cards from Shutterfly. I am going to mail them tomorrow. How is EJ doing? Has he eaten?
