We finished and mailed out our Christmas cards and Christmas letter tonight. (of course they were printed at GoodLifePhoto.com)
🙂 I had help from the kids. They put the return address and stamps on
the envelopes. Cora especially enjoyed the process. She said it was
relaxing. 🙂 I really love how my card turned out. I used Photoshop to
make the wrapping paper wrap around the box. Here is the pdf file of the letter.
The next few nights will be very busy. I have Cade’s and Cora’s
music program tomorrow and then on Thursday I have Cole’s band concert
to go to. Von leaves Friday for a business trip. I work on Saturday (I
don’t like working on weekends- but it is part of owning your own
business) and I have a ton of laundry and baking to do before Christmas
I have some very sad news. Today I went to my 2nd cousins
funeral. It was a very sad day. Matt was only 21 and took his own life
in his college apartment. He was such a talented young man (on a full
ride track scholarship). I guess he just became consumed with depressed
emotions and could not find his way out. He will be missed by so many.
My cousin Mary (Matt’s Mom) is being so strong. I will pray for her
during the Holidays. It will be a very difficult time for the family.
