Halloween, 3 of 3

Not my favorite page, but I wasn't sure how else to do it. I guess maybe using a B&W photo instead. Oh well.

Shutterfly Blog Offer

I've never ordered Christmas Cards from Shutterfly, seeing that I'm usually pretty keen on making my own cards, an/or writing my own Christmas Letter, but this year Shutterfly has an awesome offer for bloggers, in which you get to review their products and in return, they will send you 50 free Christmas Cards! And since I'm all for helping others (and getting things for free in return), I figured I would take them up on their offer. And although I've never ordered cards or photo gifts from them, I usually do order my photo prints from them that I put in the Christmas cards, and I've always been pleased with the timely service and quality from them. The two photo cards that I found that I love (because I still get to do my letter, although it will be somewhat abbreviated) are shown below. I love the Top Ten one, because then I really have to think about our most favorite memories from this year. And I love the simplicity of both of them. I just wish they came in blue and green too, without the red.

I love this card (below) for the simple Christmas message on it. That every good gift comes from Christ. And that's the true meaning of Christmas. We celebrate the birth of Christ and the importance of His life, and the opportunity to live with Him again, because of all He has done for us.
And this card (below) for the simplicity of it. If I had a great picture of the kids, I would be tempted to get this one. But this year we only took a family picture, and it wasn't a very joyous occasion, trying to get Abigail to smile, so maybe another year I'll get this one.
Go to the following places to view their cards:

Or, if you need a gift idea, and know someone that still uses a wall calendar, check out these awesome calendars. I think I might do this some year for my mom, so she can see her grandkids everyday.

More Halloween Post 2 of 3

If you want to see the Firefighter and Super Girl costumes, you will have to go to Facebook. Blogger just will not let me upload the spread, no matter how many times, on how many different days, I try. Bummer. Sorry.

The Princess and the Frog Halloween 2010 Set 1 of 3

These are just two of the six costumes Abigail and Bryant wore for all the Halloween festivities this year. Abigail's page mostly used "Springdipity" by Jady Day Studio. Then the other two pages mostly used "Boo Spooky Boo" by Jady Day Studio. There is a brad from "Safari Dreamin'", and the crown is from Carina Gardner's "Little Princess" mini-kit. Beautiful Girl tag is from "Sweet Yleana" by Jady Day Studio, and the metal alpha is from Melissa Turnidge's kit "Good Day Sunshine".
