holiday cards etc.

You know, it's a funny thing. When we celebrated Xmas, it was a no-brainer to take a cute family picture in front of the tree (the 'family' being Paul, me and maybe Ole...the cats were never game.) Now that we celebrate Hanukkah I always feel that we are making such a conscious CHOICE to "celebrate the holidays" while normally Hanukkah wouldn't require such attention. While the number of friends we have who celebrate Xmas is relatively small compared to the fellow Hanukkah-revelers, we still send them to everyone anyway. We use the holiday cards as a nice way to update everyone on what's going on in our lives, what we're up to, etc...the very kind of letter I used to think was incredibly egotistical (umm, reminds me of this blog, actually...) but we still do it. It is fun (now, in my domestic frame of mind) to receive others' letters and pictures of their kids. Anyway, we got the picture done today for the cards. This is not the pic (need to have a small element of surprise!) but it's one that sums up their enthusiasm about the event. I'm disappointed that our holiday letter won't include referral information, but hey! Soon soon soon
