You've Got Mail

Do you save Christmas cards each year and then wonder what to do with them?
Here is an idea. Many times on Christmas cards the sender doesn't write on the back of the front of the card. Simply cut the front off, then trim it to be 4 inches by 6 inches. Instant, fun postcard.

I made 23 cards and then let the kids pick which ones they liked.

GG typed up address labels and return address labels for both Hailey and Jaden. 
I stopped at the post office today and bought postcard stamps.

All the kids needed to do was "stick" the labels and the stamps on the cards.

Then write a short note.
Hailey is too little to write, but she had fun with the labels and stamps. (Her cards had an attempt at her name and some other scribbles :)

Jaden did well writing on his.

Then the kids each took their cards out to the mail box and put them in.
So all of you "PETE (Thompson) COUSINS" watch your mailbox-
(This may become a Christmas tradition at our house)
