Thank You Cards

I've written before about our family's tradition of opening the presents to each other on December 23rd. We keep the calendar clear, then spend the day relaxing and enjoying our new stuff together before our whirlwind visits to both sides of the family begin. It works out really well for us.

This year, Trevor and I spent part of December 23 making thank-you cards. Before last year, we'd always made our cards after returning home from Christmas celebrations with family. It was hectic and hard to pull Trevor away from his new toys. Last year, we realized that making the cards before Christmas is absolutely the way to go. (See the 2013 Reindeer Handprint Cards here.) That way they're ready to write and send after all our Christmas visits are done.

Trevor chose a very simple design this year that shows off his new skills in cursive writing. Here are a few of my favorites:
