What do you do with your Christmas Cards?

I L-O-V-E getting Christmas Cards in the mail. I love seeing what type people send, I love love love ones with pictures of kids on them, and I also love the ones that send the same exact Christmas Card every year (did they buy them in a pack of 1000 or something?).
So, when I get them in the mail the first thing I do is hunt down the tape (yes, this is the type of house where you never know exactly where the tape is) and start hanging them in some type of entry way. In the past 2-3 years we have lived in 3 different places so that is why I am not saying "we ALWAYS hang them..." because I just find a place that works where ever we are living. Well, I have a feeling we are going to be living in this house for quite sometime (hopefully!) and the place I found to hang my cards is right here:

Now, why do I do this? Because my Mom always did of course. It just makes sense to me. It is funny how when you grow up always doing something you think it is just the thing to do and perhaps that is what everyone on the face of the earth does. Now that I know other people do other things I could change, make up my own little card tradition, but I won't. I like my Mom's and now it's mine.

So, anyway, i was wondering what you do with your Christmas Cards?

Apparently some people shove them in trees...

Which I thought was interesting.

Some people make wreaths out of them, stuff like that. What do you do with yours???

That is funny, Leah! I did the easy thing this year too. I put them up on our entryway closet door. I love being able to see them, and I too love them all!

I am bringing yours with us. Sorry I was a little behind this year with being sick:(!

Love you girl! Have a great day! I am baking Christmas cookies today, and finishing our shopping (me and Kendra:)).

Ha, that is funny. My mom did that too. Until this year I did the same thing with hanging them on the wall!
