Have I mentioned lately that the drawgs are teh awesomeness? Because they are.

Even if finding out you guys are moving to San Diego in the summer makes me sad. *cue sad face*

Who's my new favorite blogger? YOU. For serious. Even if you make my drawing skillz look juvenile. I'm cool with that.

If I ever do Christmas letters, I'm using your method.

(And by "new," I mean recently found by me [and since I'm the center of the Universe...]. It's not like you're brand new to this, obviously. I'm just slow on the up take.)

Aww, no, you guys are teh awesome! And Natalie, I LOVE your stuff...do ninjas send out Christmas letters? Or do they get "lost" in the mail? Hmmm...

You're moving out to San Diego? That's a mere 6 hours away by car! Less if I ignore all posted speed rules. Woot!

Plus...I heart San Diego.

P.S. My word verification was "sweative" is that even a word?

Another great post. So true, and I LOVE the drawings!

Funny, I read your post yesterday, and then saw this op-ed in today's Boston Globe (which you've no doubt read already) (...and yours is better):

My RSS reader is holding its breath until your next post!

I want your handwriting. And maybe your life. Merry Christmas!

I love Killer Whales. That's my wave. However, you are a much better surfer then I am so carry on. Love it!

Stephanie Thornton said...

I just meandered on over from Matt's blog and I LOVE your blog! Super awesome drawings! I should definitely swipe your holiday card plan!

Christine: Sweative is totally a word...it's what you call it when you perspire on a work of art, right? Ah, I got nothing. And P.S. I hope you're planning your summer road trip. YAY! And Sert, thanks for the article! It's so dang true... Nat, Merry Christmas! As long as you don't analyze my handwriting (I fear that'll spill more about me than anything) and welcome Stephanie! Thanks for the kind words!

And Heather...where ARE you??

Oops! I left that comment under my sister's account. Sorry, Beth. That's what we get for all using Mom's computer at once.

Fun Christmas card and fun to hear you're moving to San Diego. That is a mere 1 hour south of where I'm at. When the time comes, we'll have to meet up. Congrats on your pregnancy! I love this blogging style--it's perfect for you!
