Christmas Cards

Welcome to my new blog, for a starter, I am sharing the Christmas cards we've received in the snail mail from friends and family.

During special occasions like Valentines day, birthdays and anniversaries, Christmas and other celebrations, I prefer receiving cards more than gifts. I always told my husband that, cards are lasting rembrance that you could reminisce over time. Here are the cards we got this yuletide season...
This is from my loving husband. He wrote "Thank you Hon for the wonderful life you have given me" inside... Gave me teary eyes when I read it...


This is the one I gave him..
This one is from our very good friends from blogosphere Demcy and Greg with a newsletter in it. I love this Idea manang, I think I may have to steal it when we get back to mainland hehehe..
This one is from the godmother of our son from Germany. Fe and Mike are having twins. Welcome and goodluck to parenthood/momhood mads!
We got this one from my husband's teenhood friend Joe Destefano. I always like their personalized Christmas card with their three sons.
This one came all the way from the Philippines from our close friend Ate Chay
This one is from my sister in law and Gail.. We miss you guys a lot!
We got this one from our neighbor back in West Virginia, the Fancher family..
Ate Emily gave us this one. She's from Korea but she's in the Philippines right now enjoying her vacation..
This one is from my close friend back in West Virginia. Im so sorry Manay for your loss, I know its hard. I been there so I know how it feels.
So there you go friends... I will leave you A question, do you prefer gifts during Christmas? Do you care much about Christmas Cards?

  16. Wow! you received plenty of cards! nakaka-touch yung card from your hubby with matching love notes pa ;)

    It's really great to receive cards. Kaso, puro text and email messages nlng ang na receive ko these days, haha. Maybe because it's faster and easier to send and receive pero it's still nice to get cards kasi mas personalize and the thought really counts. Happy New Year to all of you!
