The cards are written and awaiting stamps. I promise I will stamp them. One year I was in a hurry and mixed cards with stamps with the unstamped ones. I didn't realize my mistake until over Christmas dinner my brother-in-law asked me why I didn't like him. I wondered why he would think that. He replied it was because he had to pay to get my Christmas card. I was aghast. The next year I sent an extra stamp in every Christmas card and apologized profusely for the error of my ways.

We have had a lot of snow and some pretty nasty winds. This weekend was a nice break. It warmed up and the wind stopped blowing. Our resident buck is still wandering around. He is a handsome fellow.
What do you have left for Christmas? What kind of cookies do you make? Is there a special tradition or reminder of Christmas past?
