If it weren't for the freezing cold weather, this might be my favorite time of year (but sorry, Fall and Pumpkin Patches take the cake for me... but anyhow...). One of the best parts of this time of year is what arrives daily in our mailbox - Cards! I adore the photos, and letters, and beautiful images - every one I treasure and display (I'm not a basket stack full of cards type of gal - I want to be able to see every card)! This year, we've tied ribbon to our pantry door, and are using simple green paper clips to display them.
And I admit that every year I ultimately have one or two favorite cards (other than the one we ourselves send out, of course). And this year, even though we've only received a handful of cards so far... I already know my favorite. It came today - hand delivered.
Inside it says Merry Christmas, Mom + Dad (his teacher wrote that...)
But the reason I love this card is what is written on the outside...
"Ethan" - he's writing his own name now, without assistance. What a joyous milestone for my little guy! I'm so proud of him! I'm going to keep this card forever!
