Well, to be honest, we have yet to ever send a holiday card. This was not going to be the year I started in on this tradition even though our mailbox has been stuffed with gorgeous cards and little life updates from friends and family everywhere. Nor was I able to hang them all up because we are still a household in transition, with most of it Not Decorated, which is fine, but I simply don’t have a place to put them at the moment.
If I were to have sent a card, it would have gone something like this.
Hello dearest friends and family,
If you were with us right now, you would be marveling at the constant stream of cars driving down (and parking on) our street to watch the Christmas light show that of course, our house is a part of. Yes we knew about this before we wrote the offer for the house, no we were not thinking about how many party buses and limousines would be cruising down our street between 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM each night in the month of December, most certainly we were not thinking about how this light show would be covered by most a number of area news outlets. It is really something to behold.
This year, Critter turned one, Glitter was born, we sold our townhouse, moved in with my parents, and then moved into our “forever home” exactly two months prior to Glitter’s arrival. Marcus got a new job. I kept my same job.
Our card is a letter and not a picture because honestly, I don’t think there is a picture of the four of us in existence, though we are planning to remedy this in late January. It’s good to have goals.
Who can know what will come in 2018? Actually we do! We plan to have one frisky toddler, one teething baby (but seriously when will the teething end?), and still no pets. We hope to each return to one hobby of the many that have fallen by the wayside since having children. We plan to survive exactly one trip to the cabin with our children and take exactly one trip without them. We’re looking forward to it already.
Wishing you and yours a blessed 2018,
Marcus and Kat
