…with all of the holiday cards that you receive?
Over the years I have kept them in baskets during the holidays and then put the photo cards in a notebook/photo album after the 1st of the year. I hated the thought of throwing out (or even recycling) the cards that our friends and family put a big effort in to sending to us every year! My aunt had (and hopefully still has) photo albums filled with all of the cards they had received over the years and I used to love looking through them on Christmas day when we celebrated at their house with our family.
During the month of December I displayed our cards on the bulletin board in the playroom that normally holds the artwork from the kiddos. It was nice to look up at friends and family from near and far while we spent time in this room over the month of December. Our Christmas morning was shared with all of you as the tree was also in the playroom and this is where we spent our Christmas morning opening gifts.
I plan to get those photos into an album…eventually. I still have all of last years cards in a drawer waiting to be put in the 2009 album!
By the way, don’t we have some good looking friends and family?!
Do you display your holiday cards? If so, how? And, do you hold on to them after the holidays, or toss (recycle) them?
home is…having all of your friends and family with you for the holidays…even if it is just their photo!
