Holy Cow! It's one thing to see pictures of the boxes but ALL those cards?! So, SO many cards! It blows my mind!

I don't participate in the card exchange but I can very much appreciate all the work it must take. All of you truly are Santa's helpers.

I'm curious as to how long it took to label and sort the cards yesterday from start to finish.

mom of 2...

I'm curious as to how long it took to label and sort the cards yesterday from start to finish.

From start to finish, sorting, labeling, rebundling and packing in the tote bags, it was just about 3 hours.

I can't even begin to say how grateful we are to the Elves...without them, it usually takes me 7 days by myself

The Elves rocked it big time!!!!

From start to finish, sorting, labeling, rebundling and packing in the tote bags, it was just about 3 hours.

And that's with 10 people? x 3 hours each? Quite the labor of love. Remarkable. You must really have the system down pat.

it usually takes me 7 days by myself

I can see why!

The Elves rocked it big time!!!!

Indeed! I think next year SI is going to need its own Texas zip code.

Do they have the cute SI Christmas avatars on them? That would be awesome!

It looks like everyone had a wonderful time.

Thanks for sharing the fun pictures

Those pics are great and the work/coordination of the entire event is just incredible.

Cards from SI will be the best present I receive this year because they represent support and hope for a better future.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the Elves

For me this a gift that keeps on giving. I had some extra cards so I sent some to family and friends today. As I searched old text messages for addresses I read and re read my messages to and from my friends and family. I am so amazed at how far I've come (pat myself on back).
I am where I am today, moving forward, smiling because of all of you. Thank you all for helping me fight to get my life back. I cannot wait to cover this crummy hotel room with glitter!

Thank you again for what you all do. Know that it makes a difference.

Neither rain,nor snow nor sleet nor gloom of night stays these elves from their appointed rounds !!

This one cracks me up as it clearly was telling us traveling was a bad idea, yet we persevered anyway!

We are home safe now. We had a blast. Worth every white knuckle, lol.

It truly was my pleasure, and an honor, to be an elf again this year and give back to DS & MH, and SI, just a little bit of the help, support, and love that I've gotten here.


Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out...honestly
I wanna see you be brave

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
