Yes - it's done at Christmas and our fleshly lives are reflected in the written word over the past 45 years, a kind of incarnation in reverse. We have notes online but only back to 1978. I am not sure when we started the annual letters - probably about the time we moved from Toronto to Calgary. The very old ones are buried somewhere if they are not lost.
All the Christmas files have had to be moved - should now be accessible here.
Recently I converted some baby pictures from 1969! One of my retirement projects is to convert all our pictures to digital and reconstruct the family history. Facebook does a very nice annual summary - great for the young but not yet where I can use it to organize my 6 cubic feet of negatives and the thousands of digital pictures already in 5 differing copies of Picasa!
So here's the Christmas letter - some will get hard copy but not more than a couple of dozen. Some will find out through Twitter and some through Google+ and some through Facebook, and some through direct email.
