Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. As usual we are decked out in our official Christmas Card scarves for the photo shoot.
Millie & Walter
70 Snail Mail cards
Total Card Count – 86
Mom & Dad
We ran out of room on our ribbons and had to tape some of the cards to the stone wall. Can you believe our pawrents actually got into the double digits? Their last card was from our Auntie Colleen and her family and she even put a note on the back of the envelope saying she hoped it pushed mom and dad up in the tally. As if they could ever catch us!
One of the cool things we did this year was save our stamps for Miss Lori of the What Remains Now blog. She explains in this post how the stamps are used to raise money for a Greyhound rescue in the UK so we ordered our mom to save all our stamps from all our cards. It was easy peasy! She just ripped them off the envelopes and saved them in a little zipper bag. We sent them off to Miss Lori a couple of days before Christmas and have already started saving a new set to send to her at another time. You just have to be sure the envelope doesn’t weigh more than one ounce to go in a regular envelope with just one stamp.
Some of our mom’s friends tried hard to bump up their card count and one of her friends even sent two cards! One to her and one to us so it just evened out. We just love getting all these cards and will be saving them to look at later in the year. Thank you to everyone that sent us a card and especially to the few of you that sent more than one!
