Hubby and I at Christmas time in 2007:

Hard to believe this was three years ago! My sweet babies!(Daughter: Just turned 2; Son: 8 months old)

Scary, some really old photos of me...

I found these at my mom's house tonight.
Kind of scary, ha. This is me in 4th grade, about age 8 or 9.

I plan to order my Christmas Cards from Shutterfly

On Saturday, a friend of mine took our family picture (at Disney World's Riverside Resort) for this year's Christmas card. I'll share one of the photos with you guys as a sneak peek (see above photo). So now it's time to scan through all the photos and design this year's Card!

I'll be honest, in the past, I ran to the local drug store or discount store and just made the standard "photo card". Last year, we hired a professional photographer to do our picture, and wow, we paid an arm and a leg for 25 cards. So this year, I was looking for a "happy medium". I want something cute and modern, but not too expensive. My solution? I plan to use Shutterfly for this year's Christmas cards.

Now I am not new to Shutterfly, I have used them in the past for photo books and personalized calendars. There site is easy to use and my order arrives quickly. So I had should not have been so surprised at the huge array for holiday photos cards, Christmas invitations and holiday gift tags!

Here are a couple of designs I am considering this year....what is your favorite?

Once I complete my order, I promise to show you guys the final card! Happy Holidays! (It may even be this one below!?)

Santa's Wonderland (at Bass Pro Shops)

Last week, my dad called to tell me about something new at Bass Pro Shops. We have a location here in Orlando, so I went online to get more information and found out about "Santa's Wonderland". It's a fun, festive zone for kids which includes crafts (coloring, writing a letter to Santa and making ornaments), games (shooting practice and toy trains) and pictures with the big guy himself! The kids (and I!) really loved it. I hope you can check it out yourself.
