"Wool-sh!"

So, using the handy dandy archives I see that last year our Christmas card was painted, printed and in the mail by December 4th.

Holy. Moly.

I did delay painting this card for a little bit until we felt pretty good about Renny being in the picture. In the interim we had a ton of snow (yippee! even though it does slow everything down quite a bit), got pretty good at caring for serious injuries, pretty good at a (thankfully) not as serious injury (it's kinda personal and Ewen doesn't want it discussed on the blog ;-), lost a good friend, burst the water pipes in the wool house, been fighting off a cold, can't get an electrician to come out to save our lives (and haven't even tried a plumber)...and here it is December 21st.

Without further ado...





Merry Christmas everyone!

I feel pretty confident everyone else has picked up more than one Christmas gift, has all their decorations up, baked cookies and gingerbread (I did buy my fresh ginger yesterday), mailed their cards, wrapped their gifts, written letters to Santa and mopped their kitchen floors.

Right?

This is the cutest, sweetest card I've ever seen. I just love it. Would love to have cards like this next year if you ever think of doing them for others. Wow! So sweet about Renny :)

Phyllis said...

WOW! In spite of all that's been happening at Equinox, you pulled this off! What a gift!

Wrong! I'm pretty far behind too.
We're down to prioritizing. Sew
size 3 Superhero cape - mandatory, cards - not so much.
And I don't have any of the good excuses you do.
Warm, woolly holiday wishes to all!

Oh noooo...not burst pipes in the wool house. Who forgot to turn on the heat?? Sorry! WE are also behind with no good excuses like you. Boxes sent...most. Cards done...yes. Cookies baked......yes. Decorations/tree up.....NO. Three - count 'em, three - back to back meals planned.....yes, house cleaned......HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Good thing this isn't a competition!

Nope, none of that is done. I think this year went faster than usual.

I am quite certain I am not the only blog follower who gets a warm fuzzy feeling when I see, read, or think of Renny.

Merry Christmas! I love the card.

Hi,

I'm fairly new to your blog, and have been following the story of Renny. I'm so glad she is doing so well under your tender care.

Love the card!

Thanks for bringing a smile to my face :) Love the card. I love that Buddy is covering his eyes! I will probably be doing that when we go sledding on Saturday! Merry Christmas!
