Now that most of us have computer and internet access, with the ability to send off emails, blogs or messages...doesn't the idea of sending a Christmas letter seem a little bit of a repeat? I guess it does for me. I've been spilling out my guts about my life and what we're doing, most of the ups and the downs, and I figure that the people who really know me, know that I have a blog and check it out from time to time. Those that don't, get word from those who are reading it!
I had written up a Christmas letter last year, telling all about the huge changes in our life, the new baby, the new house, the move, the new schools etc. and then never did print it off. I felt like it was old news, and that the people I intended to mail a card to had heard it all.
There is something sad about that, in the sense that "real mail" is getting more and more foreign, and most news is old news. We get pictures in seconds on here, instead of waiting days and months to get an updated picture from someone.
I'm thinking I'll send out a few cards this year, with a family picture. If you're anything like me, you may have seen a million pictures, but are they in print?? I am needing to do it for myself as well, but first I'll send out a picture to a few friends. What do you intend to do this year?
