    My FI took our AHR reception invitations to the post office on Friday and some people received them on Saturday! The guy at the post office even had to hand stamp them and they still arrived in people's mailboxes on Saturday. Anyway, my FI took some more to a different post office today and the clerk there charged him an additional $.17/envelope to hand stamp them (they already had a $.57 stamp on them - which you can get the "Love" stamps in $.57 stamps). Also, thought you might get a kick out of who else we invited.......I didn't realize you could do that, so when I found out you could, I figured why not? :-) I heard they don't show up (obviously), but you can get a little plaque or a letter congratulating you.....

        That is too funny! If they send something back, definitely let us know!

          Haha! that is hillarious!

          I don't know how I did it, but I ended up getting a "welcome to the world" or some sort of little postcard from President Clinton when my daughter was born. I'll have to see if I can find it and post a pic.

          I want to send an invite to the president of Mexico!

          Let us know if you do Maura and what you get back.

            Ahhh!!! I didn't even think to send it to the president of Mexico! that's awesome! as for other pictures of the invites, i took a bunch of (trying to be) artistic photos of them this weekend, but got frustrated w/ shutterful b/c it was so slow and wouldn't load. so, i think i at least have them on my computer at home, so i will try to load pics tonight.

              That is hilarious. Wouldn't it be a surprise if they actually showed up!

                It kind of would be surprising if they did, but I'd be afraid that people who disaagreed w/ their views would end up throwing things at them!
