Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

This mess (along with quite a bit of paper on the floor AND some happy little children)…

…made for some fun winter decor.

Grace made a “Mike Wazowski” snowflake. (He’s a very popular fictional character around here!) See the single eye?

Speaking of movies, these snowflakes (besides reminding me of my own childhood) remind me of our favorite Christmas flick, Elf! Now if only we could learn to build New York City out of Legos…

Kids’ Christmas Program 2010

The kiddos did a great job singing in their Christmas program at church this past Sunday. (Of course, as their mother, I am a little biased.) Even Caleb sang the words, even though he would much rather not sing in front of a large group of people. Ever. He got the red plate for his effort.

Just a couple of pictures from the night. (Recognize Grace’s dress, Betsey?)

Right Around the Corner

I realize that Thanksgiving hasn’t even come to pass yet, so don’t get your undies in a bunch when I remind you that Christmas is coming!

As I look forward to celebrating Christ’s birth (and doing so in as non-chaotic of a way as possible), I am trying to plan ahead on my Christmas cards. I’m trying to stop being a last-minute kind of girl, and start being a plan-ahead kind of girl. It would make life so much easier in the long-run, wouldn’t it?

Anyway, you all know I like to be frugal, so I’ve done different things throughout the years for our Christmas greetings…usually Sam’s Club ($.25/card) or just a plain 4×6 (cheap!), accompanied by a letter.

This year, Shutterfly is offering 50 free holiday cards for bloggers.

As I looked through their 10 FULL pages of holiday card designs (and my eyes began to cross), I chose a few that I really liked. (And trust me – they have a HUGE selection of ADORABLE cards!)

How about this one?

Or this one…

Or maybe this one?

Now, let’s be honest, these cards are much pricier than I’d normally go for (i.e. if I wasn’t getting them for free + shipping). But, if you have dollars in your pocket that are yearning to be spent on holiday cards, Shutterfly has some really beautiful designs!

And, I’d like to mention that I made an 8″x8″ photo book through them when Ava was a baby, and I was very pleased with the quality of the book as well as the ease of use with the design software. This is a good, solid company.

Now, dear friends, time to think about what we’re THANKFUL for…
