A Christmas Card Confession

I wish I had a good excuse for this but I don't: our Christmas cards went out late. With all the greatest intentions in the world we started them back on Thanksgiving and worked our way through them. Then in the heat of the season we got our wires crossed, my wife thinking I had dropped them off at the Post Office and me thinking she had. On Monday we discovered them -- stamped and ready to go -- in a pile of presents yet to be wrapped.

The horror!

So I apologize for being so fashionably late with our cards going out this year!

It gives people something special to look forward to! The twelve days of Christmas begins and the season still has legs. No worries!

Sounds like me. That's okay; we can all blame it on the late Thanksgiving we had this year.

I apologize too. I discovered a stack of cards that I thought i sent out as well. So, some people received the cards and some did not and I'm so sorry! It was random too and did not even follow the alphabetical listings of names. Someone from page three may have received one from me while someone on page one did not. So sorry!
