tis' the season...

i love christmas cards. i've gotten weird looks from alot of people when i ask them if we can be christmas card friends someday. let me explain.
in my house, when we get christmas cards they get taped up on the door for all to see. it's fun to see how families change from year to year...and always fun to read a little letter to see what people are up to. there were always the families of boys that i would take a gander at each year to see if they were as cute as the last year. there are a few classic christmas family favorites my fam gets every year. we anxiously wait for them to come in the mail. i love it.
this is how i know people from my parents lives....old college roomates, mission companions... and it's interesting how we end of crossing paths. one time i saw a kid at costco. i didn't dare say hello...because he wouldn't know who i was. but i'd seen the kid grow up...through christmas cards. i ended up working efy with a christmas card exchangee. i worked for one of my dad's friends from school and ended up meeting all of those "boys" in christmas card pictures past. so funny. and now. i work for another christmas card exchangee, and one of those "boys" is married and works in the cubicle next to me. i am living the dream.
i don't know if i can express how excited i am to go home for christmas. my mom does such a good job decorating the house and making it festive for the holidays. baking goodies and treats for neighbors and blasting the christmas music. but do not forget about the CARDS. i will get home, sit at the counter, and my mom will hand me a stack of letters. i love it.
so when i ask you if we can be christmas card friends with you someday...that's a big deal.
