MRD, your cards are lovely. We have a good friend who has been making her own cards for over 30 years. She keeps one from each year, and has them tucked away - it's amazing to see how different they are each year - she's wonderfully creative. About your cousin, every year our dear friends get one of those boastful form-letters from an old college roommate and the four of us read it aloud and just howl. It's beyond belief.
Schmoo, this just cracked me up and reminded me of when I was 7. I broke both bones in my left leg and had had a cast on for several months. The doctors kept promising I'd be cast-free for Christmas, but the time came and they realized I'd need to keep it on about three more weeks. I was devastated, so my dad took some red tape and spelled out Merry Christmas on my cast. I have a picture of it and I've got this big smile on my face. Dads make everything better.Originally Posted by schmoo2;2718544;
