Seasonal Quotes:

  • A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together. ~ Garrison Keillor
  • Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale
  • Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. ~Hamilton Wright Mabie

Tips for writing the annual family newsletter: 

  • Keep them short and sweet. One page is the perfect length.
  • Add the ages of your children and special accomplishments of the year.
  • Write about trips you’ve taken and experiences you’ve had.
  • Funny quotes from the year are always entertaining.
  • Include a couple of lines about each family member. If a loved one has passed, share a fond memory of them.
  • Prepare them for upcoming events. If you write: “Amy is a senior this year,” people won’t be stunned to receive her graduation card in a few months.

How to involve the kids: 

  • Let them help you decorate the envelopes.
  • If they can write, have them sign their name.
  • If they can’t write, get an ink pad and let them leave their fingerprints.
  • Grandma and Grandpa live far away? Instead of a family letter, include a piece of custom made artwork from the kids. Or a photo book full of their art!
