On a whim yesterday, I thought it might be fun to do something different with the Christmas cards we’ve been getting in the mail. I usually place them around the bookcase in our great room, but they kind of get lost in there.
We had three little trees sitting up in the attic that I hadn’t felt like doing anything with. We brought them down and made some Christmas card trees. I’m loving it. The children keep walking over to it, looking at them and asking about the families.
Some of the cards are from friends we were stationed with way back when . . . before the children were born or could remember. They’re curious about their stories and our connection.
A lot of the cards are from friends I’ve met through blogging. In fact, this is the first year I’ve received more cards from friends in my computer than anyone else. It makes me smile.
What do you do with the Christmas cards you get in the mail?
