The Christmas Card You Won't See In Your Mailbox
I think we'll be saving our money this year instead of sending Christmas cards again, but I did want to share this cute picture. Would you believe all these clothes are hand-me-downs? I know the day will come when my kids (especially the girls) will balk at wearing used clothes, but to me there's something very special in much-loved clothes finding more use. My nieces have some of the most beautiful clothes and I just love being able to dress my girls in ones I remember from special days - like Christmas. I also love pulling out First Daughter's old clothes for Second Daughter. They're like friends, already full of sweet memories.
Or funny ones. (No, I didn't get a hair cut; that's me with First Daughter back in 2006.)
