    No. If you want to know what’s been up with my family for the last year than you should try calling me!

  2. Nikki says:

    Yea I agree with Sue…plus I always thought those were weird.

  3. Karen Joy says:

    I agree with both of you!

    No, I haven’t done this so far. For the few people who don’t already know all the drama in my life, I don’t feel like it’s interesting enough to do a formal “annual letter” about it. I mean, when it comes down to it, is there anything that unique about my life? The only time I added anything “informational” was after I adopted my two girls – I never got around to sending announcements, so I had Christmas postcards made with their picture and basic info, and inserted them in my Christmas cards.

    I do like reading a well-written letter, though.

    Nope. But this year we created a Christmas card with a collage of pics from the past year showing some of the major events. So far the card has been well received.

  6. Joy says:

    I have never done that and never would. I feel they are either bragging or complaining letters. Those who know you well, know what’s gone on and those who don’t, probably don’t care how many times you stopped going to the Black Hills

    I’ve done two Christmas Letters – both wrapping up years that had huge events in them for us. One was when we bought our house and Josh was born, and the other was the year that Steve had his accident and went blind.

    For both, I kept them as short as I could, and included pictures. I also tried to keep the tone light… for the first one, it was “we’ve been so blessed to be able to have this house and this little one”, and the second one was “thanks for all your support and prayers through the year”.

    But I don’t write one every year. As most have said, people pretty much know what’s going on, if they want to know, and the rest can call and ask.

    And I have to agree…. those that do nothing but brag on how wonderful and brilliant their children are just drive me ’round the bend.

    no and I’ll tell you why. I got the poor parents out of my moms siblings. Now that being said..I LOVED my mom and dad more than anything in the world BUT I HATED hearing about my one aunt and uncles adventures and new purchases every freakin year. And she would include pictures and it sounded more like a big brag and “look at us.” Now I feel really bad because that uncle passed away last year and my aunt is in really bad shape and all those “THINGS” that she felt worthy enough for a letter that made me jealous mean nothing now to any of us. SAD!

    but seriously…LOL thinking about me writing a letter and sending it to my relatives would pretty much do it in for me. I’ve always been known as the rebel of the family ..maybe I could just like blog about the shit and then print it off and mail it out!
