Merry SITSmas!

As part of my life balance strategy this year I am not sending paper holiday cards.   Bah-humbug.  I know, I know.

Of course, I can always get away with telling everyone I have decided to be "green" this year.

The truth is that I'm just not up for getting my kids to sit still for a photo, designing and printing cards (or buying hundreds of pre-made cards), addressing them all and getting to the post office to buy postage and ship them off.  Between the time and the money, I now recognize that is a combination of activities which might just send me over the edge.

(Did I mention that I'm doing P90X which means my alcohol consumption is way under par?   Hollah to Robert, Kendall and Rodney -- I miss you wine guys!)

Anyway, no cards.

That said, I will be designing a cool e-greeting.  (Stay tuned!)  Whoohoo! 

The fun part has been looking through all my prior year holiday photos which might be suitable for this purpose.

This is one of my favorites. It reminds me to look up to the stars, believe in magic and enjoy the moment. (Happy face. Contented sigh.)

I am also participating in what is known in the Merry Blogosphere as "SITSmas."  Never heard of it??  Shocking!

SITSmas is hosted by my lovely SITstahs over at "The Secret is in the Sauce."  Today is their official day for sharing good tidings and holiday cheer.   And comment love.  And prizes!

Feel free to join in the fun!

Sadly, no open bar.  But, ya know... prizes!

Cheers!

I'm doing e-cards too ... or maybe just a group e-mail ... or if time gets really tight, I may just post 'Merry Christmas' on my blog and be done with it.

So sorry I missed out on SITSmas, have seen the comments everywhere...I LOVE your first picture, absolutely adorable and peaceful. And I support your abandoning christmas cards...what a monstrous effort...I don't even have kids and I rarely send them. Happy belated SITSmas!
