Forget standing in line for returns, the day after Christmas means writing thank you notes! I found this darling vintage stationery for a quarter at a chilly December yard sale. I thought these would be sweet thank you's from Elise and Andrew.
Which brings me to the new question of Internet etiquette: is it permissible to send thanks via email alone? It would save so much postage. I've taken photos of the children with their gifts and emailed them--along with other Christmas pictures and a note about our morning--to faraway family. This helps everyone feel in touch on the big day. I guess I will have Andrew write his own notes so the paper versions aren't duplicates of my emails.
The funny thing is that while I get the strangest assortment of gifts from out-of-town family, I never receive the one thing they KNOW I use--stationery!
