Is there any interest for some of our local (or not so local members, should they choose...lol!!) to join us again at our house this year for the Christmas Card sorting and labeling party?

Last year we sorted and labeled 3969 cards...in ONE night!! In the past years, it's taken me literally days for labeling (MH and I sort in the first night then I'm on my own...lol!!) and now I'm spoiled from the help last year!

So if anyone is interested in pizza, tequila and yummy desert, please let me know on this thread

I would love to come help. Let me talk to knight and see if he wants to give me a Houston weekend for Christmas Card Elf/Christmas shopping for my birthday this year. If he says yes we are both in.

We stayed at The Woodlands Resort for a concert this year....rooms were meh but the pool was nice. Any hotel recommendations?

I'm excited! I've been wanting to go to a g2g but really scared to do it. I think this will be great because we will have a job.
