As we were taking down all of our holiday decorations this weekend, I piled up the Christmas cards and put them aside. I always think I'm going to recycle them and just can't make myself, yet I never know what to do with them. I think last year's cards are in our decorating boxes because I just couldn't throw them out.
As I was cleaning the house afterwards - and oh, how glorious it feels to have my space back!!!! - I threw the cards on my desk beside my December Daily album.
And then it hit me. The cards were all smaller than my album and my December Daily pages hadn't even filled the album halfway.
I pulled out a bunch of 5x7 and 6x8 page protectors and voila! They're all in my album now!
They will be so much fun to look back on in the years to come! And most of the cards we received had family pictures on them (I didn't want to include them here since I didn't ask permission to post them) so that will be even more fun to look back on.
And now we're off to clean a little bit more - January was just made for cleaning, don't you think??? - and then watch the premiere of Downton Abbey!!!
