One example of the cool cards I stumbled upon is from my niece, Devin. She sent it five years ago and I've held onto it four five moves and, now, six holidays. I grabbed it and jotted down a little message to Devin about our holiday this year and a quick blurb about this years happenings...in less than two sentences, mind you..none of this, "our dog learned how to poop outside this year and our brilliant daughter married a billionaire" crap. Guess what? NO ONE CARES. But, it is fun to see what you might sent years ago and keep that conversation going. I've included a separate note with Devin's card explaining my "Christmas Yearbook" idea and hope that next year Devin will send it back to me. For another cousin who sends photos of her babies (now approaching adolescence) I decided to make a scrapbook page of the cards she's sent over the years and send it to them as a holiday card. At a time of year when we often forget what really matters...and, no, it isn't the latest iPad...it's nice to think outside the gift box from time to time.
