Thanks for looking!

Journaling reads: We are a Christmas letter writing family! We’re one of those holiday mailings that still include a family update. In 1999, after surviving a financial collapse, we received
tremendous support from both family and friends and it was the best way to express our gratitude. 13 years later, this family team effort is still a great way to stay connected with those we love. The process starts with an outline of a list of events for the year and then we break it up into our usual format of general news from both extended families, then each one of us has a section and end it with our family highlights. This year we had 3 outlines and 6 drafts and today it’s on Christmas paper and close to being done. Some years it was difficult to compose the letter like after September 11, but then we felt it was even more important to send it out. We’re told by many that they look forward to finding the McLoone letter in their mailboxes!
