Wow, is it Thanksgiving week already!? I thought life was moving by quickly as it was, but add a new baby to the mix and whoo-ee! Hold onto your hat.
I'm going to offer to take my sister's family photo for her Christmas cards. She has been helping me a ton with Charlotte this fall, having her over for playdates and making sure she's not missing out on any fun while I'm tied up at home with the baby. Today, she and my sister-in-law took Charlotte to the zoo so I could finish up some work in time to have a break for Thanksgiving Day. Julia has two boys, one of which is six, Charlotte's age. And Rachel has one boy who is also six. One tribe of monkeys goggling at another. I imagine the kids are having a blast.
I probably should work on my own cards too, huh? If for no reason but to capture a snapshot of our funny little family as it currently stands: mom, dad, lanky teenage boy, toothless 1st-grade girl, and a newborn bobble-headed baby.
It's funny, I don't ever get too stressed about getting holiday cards out on time, but now that Julia's cards are on my mind, I'm hearing a soft tick, tick, tick behind my right ear. Time to get to it.
...which train of thought reminds me I better announce my new Holiday stationery things -- cuz it's high time. If you're looking for bright, stylish photo cards or party invitations that haven't been gooped up with long, sappy greetings, I have the solution. Check out my holiday collection. There are also great paper plates, napkins and cups. We only have about 6-12 of each item in stock, so go get 'em. I'm not sure if we'll be able to replenish before Christmas hits, but I'll find out and let you know.
