An Invitation....

Yum
I have done Christmas letters every year since 1977. I have stubbornly done them while they got a bad rap for being a "bragging session" in the 80s and continued to do them in the 90s when Ashley was in middle school and again through now while Ashley was in college.

I haven't done one this year yet because I thought I would try something new. I have worked on a Christmas blog (well, starting in September) and I am going to send a web address to those I mail a letter to inviting them to take a peak. If they are not interested in our family, then they don't have to be subjected to how wonderful we are all.

I will still write a small letter for the "senior" members of our family who are not connected to the internet. I often here from these folks how much they appreciate the update.

So, you are invited to check out the Bob and Terri Christmas 2007 blog! Comments are welcomed!

  2. That's a wonderful idea. And it saves so much in postage! I checked out the blog (of course) and it's great. Not too time consuming, once a month. But it lets people into your life. It's really great, Terri!

    Love,

  3. That's a terrific idea about the blog. Too bad people think you're bragging. It's nice to have something to brag about rather than dwell on the negative.
    Cheers to you! I'll go check it out.

My darling niece Kari of course...and of course you're wonderful and of course we want to read all about you and how wonderful you are and who is being so petty as not to agree with our opinion? The NERVE!

  10. Terri what a fabulous idea. I actually didn't torture our card recipients this year. I just did a picture collage and mailed that in the card instead, but I really like your idea. Next year!!!!
