More Christmas Around the House

You know that giant map of the United States we have on our kitchen wall?

I took it down and put up this instead:

I got the idea from Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight -- a homeschool blog that is mind bogglingly creative.

I pounded straight pins into the wall and tied red ribbon to the pins. The cards are either simply folded over the ribbon, or else clipped on with binder clips.

A close up of a binder clip holding a card:

This is our favorite card, by the way, since it has both a black cat and the cardinal that this family always has on their Christmas card (they're huge St. Louis Cardinal fans). But don't worry -- the card you sent is our second favorite.

(And if you didn't send us a card, well, I'm sure the card you would have sent if only you knew our mailing address/had sent any cards out at all would've been our favorite.)

This is so cute, Gail. I love the simplicity and charm of it (and might just steal it for next year!) Merry Christmas to you all!
