it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

I just finished making the last of my Christmas cards this evening. Take that, all you people still getting ready for Halloween! If it's any consolation, it's not like I actually wrote out the cards and addressed the envelopes...yet.

This is the first year I made Christmas cards. Not knowing how long it was going to take, I wanted to get an early start. It took about three weeks so starting in October should be sufficiently early next year. It's no fun making cards if things are down to the wire, so I want to be sure to do them well ahead of time. If only I had my Christmas shopping done, then I'd be happy. Some people, like Brian and Jake are always easy to shop for. Others, like some of the family members I've been shopping for year after year after year are a bit more difficult.
