Christmas Tradition

A few years back Mike and I started a tradition of going to Cracker Barrel to get our Christmas cards ready to mail.
Today we woke up at 5 and headed to Cracker Barrel. We had to wake up early because the closest Cracker Barrel for us is about 30 minutes away. We wanted to make sure we were all done before Mike had to start work at 9 this morning.
We had a delicious breakfast and then we got our system set up to get all the envelopes labeled and stuffed with cards, pictures and business cards. Mike is a very organized person so normally things are very easy to accomplish.
All out of town cards went into the mail today.
Big lesson I learned this year is be careful how big and how much paper I use when making Christmas cards. We ended up at the post office this morning having to buy additional 17 cent stamps for most of our Christmas cards.
We had a great morning and got alot accomplished.
Thanks Mike for keeping me organized.

Wow! That sounds like a fun tradition! :) I've got my cards, but I still need to get them addressed and sent out...

Like I said... Mike is very well organized. He has all the names on word doc and we print them out on labels. Then all we have to do is stick labels on which is alot easier and much faster than actually hand writting them all out. We did about 100 cards this year. Next year we will probably limit them down some. It's just getting out of hand. Gook luck with getting all yours done.
By the way - we missed you guys on Sunday.
