A little thanks goes a long way!

If your family is anything like ours, we get a LOT of gifts every holiday.  Those two lucky boys of ours receive more gifts than they know what to do with.  And so after Christmas, I sit down to begin the task of writing a ton of thank you notes to family, friends, neighbors … the list goes on.  You know the drill.

Of course, I am a bit picky with my thank you cards.  (It goes with the territory).   And in the holiday spirit of complete honesty, every one in our household has their own personal stationery.  Well, almost everyone… everyone except my husband. He could care less.  And let’s be honest, I’m writing most of his thank you notes anyway.

This year, though, we tried something a little different.  We went for the personalized family photo stationery.  And I gotta say, I LOVE it!  I might be just a tad bias, but here’s why… 1) it can be used for anyone in the fam.  So the kids don’t have to each write a thank you note separately.  Or at least I don’t feel like they should. 2) It matches our Christmas card this year.  (Yay!  I can’t help it, but matching makes me happy), and I had them printed along with our Christmas cards.  (Another win for being prepared way ahead of time)!  3) I used the exact same photo from our Christmas card.  It pulled double duty. That’s a win-win.  4) And .. finally… come on! Look at those cute little faces!  They make me smile everytime I pull a card out to write a note.  That, my friend, is the ultimate win/win!

Oh how December always sneaks up on us… it’s freezing cold in Chicago, there’s a bit of snow on the ground, our Christmas tree is twinkling and the kids are bouncing off the walls on constant sugar highs.  It’s by far my favorite time of year!

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy HOWLidays from our family to yours.  May you have a blessed holiday season and a 2018 filled with healthy, joy, and lots of cheer!
