Those Christmas Letters

I started two red three ring binders for the Christmas letters.

If you ever write a Christmas letter my suggestion is to put a date on it and sign it yourself instead of just typing your name…make it personal.  It was like a huge puzzle here trying to figure out what year was what. Finally reading through the letters and doing the math I figured it out.  I had old Christmas Letters from 1996 – 2016 to sort through.  The file cabinet I kept them in is quite empty now.

I found letters from both of our daughters before they became mothers.  They are interesting bits of history.  I made copies of them and will include them in the Grands folders but I ran out of page protectors the non glare kind.

So the Christmas Letter project is done but the Grands binders filled with keepsakes still need a little work.  I need one more newspaper clipping.  They are close to completion.

Today I am off to a photography class, I should stay home and work on something but tomorrow is another day.  Today is a “me” day.  I think I have earned it.

  2. Hope you have LOTS of fun today! You have earned it and deserve it! The stuff at home will be there on a bad weather day when you can't get out. I admire you getting everything in order. You all can enjoy it more and it will be less of a puzzle when someone has to sort after you - - - far in the future.

  3. I love "me" days, but rarely get to take them. I save Christmas cards and letters also, but not in an organized way. I like the idea of doing that...just have to find a day or two to do it. Have agreat weekend!

  4. My ME days seam to be over, don't know how that happened.
    That is great way to look at history. I get most letters that are
    far away friends. Family about gone.

  5. It takes a very strong person to take me days. Why don't you start the celebration of a National Me Day?

  12. You sure have earned a "me" day. One of these days your grandchildren are going to really appreciate all the work you've done. Oh, I appreciate your thoughts on the American Girl doll.

  13. I slowed down today, no big projects, just a garden club meeting, a four mile destination, a little raking in the yard, and then catching up with blogging. We will go out to a movie this evening.
    I have kept all of our Christmas letters from over the years. I have also kept any that my daughter has sent. They are in the home safe right now. Some day they will go into a binder to be handed down to my daughter and grand kids.

  14. You sure do deserve a day to get out of the house and do something different. You'll be back to sorting letters before long, I'm sure.
