Christmas Work Already?!?!?!

We are starting to make our Christmas cards. They are those cards from Costco where you can drop your photo into a pre-existing border.

I know, we are still weeks away from Christmas...some might even (correctly) point out that we are months away from Christmas. But some of this work must be done ahead of time. If we do it now, it means we can enjoy our December, which I would prefer to do.

Of course, we take forever to choose a design and a message, but the really fun part is pouring over the photographs from the past year. My other half is pretty good about taking photos. Sometimes it gets annoying, but we get some really good photos, so it seems worth it. We had a great photo of us in New England. The drawbacks to that photo were that we were wearing sunglasses (I don't like to send us out with our faces covered). Also, there was a strange pole sticking out of the ground next to us. Our other option was us standing in front of an ancient pyramid in Mexico. It was great, except for the sunglasses. In the end, we chose a more casual photo, also from Mexico. It's a close up of our faces. We are in the countryside. It's cute.

As much as I complain, I like doing the activity. It lets us relive the year in photographs. It helps us to revisit the good times that have passed in 2005 (I'm talking like it's over!) We get nostalgic when we look through this stuff. It's good for the soul.

Sounds like you should encourage your other half to take more pictures. And maybe to require the camera be taken out more often.

The process sounds as satisfying as the end product promises to be.

How we go about doing those things as couples that once were solitary decisions is a rich topic to explore. Thanks for contributing to the exploration.

Welcome to QFA, Ross!
