an early Christmas present...

is soon to be mine thanks to Shutterfly. I love sending out Christmas cards and really love receiving them. All those sweet little children, dressed up and smiling at me from pictures so carefully taken. It's just a part of the season for me. For the past few years, I have designed my own cards using photoshop with pictures that Jonathan has taken. This year, however, Shutterfly made an offer I simply can't refuse. In exchange for a blog post, I'll receive 50 free stationary cards. Thanks to Shutterfly, because during a Christmas season when I have a little baby adding {a little} chaos to our busy family and I can't seem to catch up on even the simplest of tasks lately, they have offered to take one task out of my hands. Whew... I feel better already.

Here are a few of my favorite of their MANY choices:


I am quite smitten with the idea of a folded card {like the last image above} this year. It's hard to choose just one photo, and this way I can include one or more on the inside of the card as well. And, just so you know, although I *heart* each of the above designs, I made sure not to post the one I'll end up ordering. Wouldn't you rather have a surprise in your mailbox in a couple of weeks?

Thanks again, Shutterfly, for making my Christmas a little easier already! Now, we need to dress the littles up and ask them to say "cheese!"

Hey---that's what Meme thought last Thursday on Thanksgiving for her annual Christmas photo shoot! We have wonderful and skilled photographers in this family, but it does take cooperation from the 13 little (and not so little) subjects! Maybe we didn't say "cheese" the right way! At any rate, I think they are special and just maybe the recipients will enjoy my attempt once more to send a picture of all the kiddos whether they are smiling, looking at the camera, crying, pouting,or looking at the sky---afterall, individuality counts---right??
