I usually hand make my cards, last year it was over 100. This year I didn't make any - waited too long to get started so I'm sending out photo cards. My list has dwindled too - cutting out a lot of people, mostly coworkers because I made toffee to hand out and printed out labels. I only ordered 30 cards so that's all I'm going to send out!

BTW for those who are divorced, do you still send out Christmas cards to your ex-inlaws?

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

We tend to hand more out than we mail, but I still send some out to my family. I would send them to DH's family, but I can't get addresses from them (and they wonder why we don't visit them--how can we if we don't know where they live??).

Hand out maybe 35, mail 10 or so.

He has kept in touch with the majority of his former students and their families, and likewise with the patients he has taken of plus their families. He is also very involved in many church organizations.
That is very sweet. He sounds like a special person.

I send out about 40-50 cards each year.

This will probably be the last year, Then I will cut my list down to those I know will appreciate it, those that send back, those that I really want to have one and dd's teachers. Theres a lot of family on both sides that are just whatever so i wwill cut them off.

I'm also cutting dd's bday list too. The same people that never show up I wont bother to send them and invite ( i make hand make mine).

I have my list of addresses I just updated. I usually mailout to family in the next town but this year I'm saving money on postage and handing out. ok I wrote our 4 card and I have 25 more to go but I cant think and I know I'm missing a few people
