I am Grateful...

(Pictures include Kendall's first haircut...and playing with the WII with the Ferguson kiddos)
....I am Grateful for my sweet family, for my kids who tell me 100 times a day that they love me, for my Joe, who does the same, and buys me a banana shake and McRib when I was sick in bed yesterday, for my mom and dad, who love spending time with my kids and spoil them, for my mom and dad-in-law, who adore my kids, as well, and are so sharing, for my sisters, who are great aunties and sisters to me, for my nieces and nephews, especially Maddie, who I wish we hung out with more...:-) and for my great sister and brothers-in-law....I am a lucky girl! Not to mention all my great friends....oh I could go on...just counting my blessings.

Count your blessings today!

Merry {Shutterfly} Christmas

So every year, I have used Costco for my Christmas cards, and I have been satisfied. And then every year, I get so many cute cards from friends and family, and the majority of the ones I end up loving are from Shutterfly: So this year, I am using Shutterfly. I am excited to try their cards:! I've always been a big fan of their picture developing (love the bright colors!), so can't wait to design my cards (now I just need to find or take the right pictures!). There are a ton of cute designs, and I really like that I can share more than one picture on the cards. Come on now, admit it, the picture cards are your favorite Christmas cards, too, right? I have to admit, I am a bit disappointed when I get a regular card now. I even started putting together scrapbook pages of the cards I receive so over the years I can see my family and friends change and grow. (Don't remind me that I'm only on the year 2004...haha!).

I'm also thinking of using Shutterfly for Christmas gifts....check out these cool things:
Photo Gifts: Thinking my Dad (and Joe's Dad) need a mouse pad of his grandkids for work!

Here are a few of my favs....maybe you will be receiving one of these adorable cards from me in the next 47 days! Ahhhhh.....

Mongrammed Card: (Isn't it darling? I love monograms and using several photos!)
Sharing the news/love (SO cute, and a good way to also share family news without writing a full on letter!)

So, what do you think? Where are YOU getting your Christmas cards from??? If you are a fellow blogger, you can try Shutterfly and get FREE cards??? Here's how:

My Pumpkins

We finally hit the patch...the day before Halloween! Where did October go??? I really like some of these pics. I am about to get a new camera, just waiting for my insurance check, and can't wait to be playing with my new toy. Watch for a post later today on Christmas cards...did someone say Christmas cards?!? Yes, folks, there are only 47 days until Christmas!
