Four years old

My babies are 4 years old today.  I can't believe it has been 4 years since these wonderful, amazing little guys came into my life.  And do you know what they got for their birthday today?  Snow.  And lots of it.  They had a ball!  I think if they didn't get a single present they would have been happy with just being able to go and play out in the snow.  Luckily it will still be around tomorrow as well so more snow play!

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas out there! 

I blinked and of course December is nearly over.  Sigh.  No many plans that didn't happen.  But I did get more done this year I think than last so each year is improving.  Woo-hoo!  The boys had a ball, will have to share all that fun stuff soon.  Just wanted to wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas!

And of course everything was going along swimmingly and then the sickies hit our house.  Well, most of our house now.  Hoping hubby doesn't end up with it.  Cameron and I started Friday morning and Noah yesterday.  Kept Noah home from school today and attempted to keep the boys relatively calm.  Ha!  Try keeping 2 little preschoolers relatively calm after having been cooped up int he house for several days because of illness and weather.  Um, one recipe for fun, eh?  But we survived and had some fun along the way.  Praying our house is all back to "normal" tomorrow!

I did manage to get our Christmas cards done today and ordered from Shutterfly.   Can't wait to get them.  Will share with you once we get them and mail out.  :)

Shutterfly strikes again!

Once again I have to prefess my love for Shutterfly.  They have my undying love for their quality and how fast they always process my order.  Yes, I admit, I am a Shutterfly snob.  And when I found out they were giving away 50 free holiday cards I was all over that.  I mean, come on, who wouldn't be?  Especially when our Christmas card list is forever growing (which is a good thing!).

So as I was browsing all the awesome Christmas photo card designs they had to choose from I decided to enlist the help of the wee ones.  Of course the boys picked out this one.  I think it's cute too. 

I think this one fits the boys' personalities.  :)  I wonder if they have one with lumps of coal?

I love this one.

 I am starting to notice a red theme here for me.  :)

I also have to admit I LOVE this one.  Kind of reminds me of Christmas letters but I like the little twist on it.  And hey, I am breaking the red streak here too!

 And of course after I get finished up with my Christmas cards I am going to have to do our calendar.  And this year I am taking the easy way out and using Shutterfly for that one too.  They really do make the process so wasy I would be crazy not to.  Last year I did this one and I have loved looking at it all year.  Even our realtor asked me where in the world I found it when she came to visit after we moved here.  I was even able to save it as my background on my computer.  :)

And last on my list for this month to take care of is the boy's birthday invites.  Thinking they have some super cute designs over there too.  I will say one of the things I have come to love about Shutterfly is they have some super great designs all on their own or they give me the option to use my own designs.  After having gone to digital scrapping they make my life super easy.  I create, download to their site and voila...print and they send it right to my home.  Yippee!  What mom doesn't love that!  I can create at 2:00am (you know, that spare time I have). 

I still think my favoirte Shutterfly story is from this past January.  I stayed up almost the entire night and did our entire 2009 book (like 68 pages) in one night.  One night!  I still hadn't finished our 2008 book but we had our 2009 because of their awesome Simple Path they had launched then.  I am a believer!  I will more than likely be doing our 2010 book the same way this year, although I think I will forgo the staying up all night this time.  ;)
