Christmas Cards

How many people like Christmas cards? I like the ones that are down to earth. I REALLY like the ones that tell me how great their children are and how WONDERFULL life is. While I enjoy hearing how everyone is, I don't really care how great life is cuz I know it's not.

All Iknow is that somehow we made it through this year, no one got killed, we still live in a house, I still have a car, and my wife has not kicked me to the couch! That is a great year! I can shoot straight, my boys can play ball, my girl can fight, my sons hurt me when we rough house, and somehow we have money to pay bills...I think.

I love Christmas letter especially Trent. I know what you are saying 100%. I'm glad to know you are thankful for the things that REALLY matter. Merry Christmas.

Love cards LOVE pictures . . . despise overly glamorized success stories. We have fun reading how everyone’s doing during our version of a “family home evening” but agree that there might be a little overkill with the “life is fabulous” letters. It’s a mixed bag. I will tell you this much- I’d rather have a bunch sugar coated letters than an empty mailbox ;)

Brooke you are so nice! Your comments are always so thoughtful and nice and well-written! I guess this is an inoportune moment to ask you for your address to send a Christmas card?? Don't worry, there is no brag letter. I could tell you all of my problems, but I doubt that would be a very good Christmas letter, either. I agree. No bragging. I think being grateful for family is the best. I don't know what I'd do without them!
