    I have received 5 cards so far. I am going to wait until that family gets home to open them. Thanks to Shannon, Debbie (Halimer), Pamela, Michelle and Jody.
    Looking forward to opening them all.

    It's such a shame - I've had to give up a Christmas magazine swap that I'd been doing for years with a friend in England, the postage was just outrageous.

    More lovely holiday mail - thank you Kelly, Debbie P, Shannon and Allison. I don't think I thanked you, Donna, for the lovely ornament. It went right onto the tree which means it will be going to Okinawa with us. That's a beautiful insert you included, Debbie P, what a beautiful picture and the words on the back make one really think, was it different for Mary on that night? I think I am going to look for a lightweight frame, open at the back so the words will be visible and add it to our tree. I love that so many of our ornaments are gifts from friends or mementos of special events and occasions.

    It is a pity. Postage is high here to and all of my cards with the exception of one go overseas. I make a decision before signing up whether or not I can afford to participate and luckily so far I have been able to. Hopefully we can all continue for years to come.

    My cards all went out today. The one item may need to be laid on bottom when put away. (flat)

    I have quite a pile growing on my buffet.
