Christmas Cards

Every year, I promise that I am going to start doing stuff early for Christmas so that I am not stressing at the last minute. I was determined to have all of my shopping done by the beginning of December and my cards shipped early. Well today is the 15th and I still have a list of things to get done but I am really not going to stress this year. Really, I'm not :) 

I always have the best intentions but have been bad about getting cards sent out so it is a huge step that I am finally sending them out this year! The Christmas cards have already started rolling in and it is helping motivate me as I see how cute they are. I really love getting Christmas cards and hearing from people we haven't seen in awhile and seeing all of the cute pictures of the little ones growing.    

This year I am ordering cards from I want to do a photo card so we can include pictures of B for friends and family who haven't seen him in awhile. There are tons of cute options to choose from, below are some of the ones I am thinking of using. We have gotten lots of cute photo books through Shutterfly that I love so I am excited about getting cards from them. It is super easy to upload pictures to the website and so nice having our pics all in one place to easily choose from to use for gifts! Photo gifts are the best!

So cute how you can do a family shot and show close ups of the kids. 

Love this one for more personal cards for Grandparents etc. since you can put extra pics and a special message inside. 

I pretty much love anything with black and white and a splash of color. Plus who can resist adding an initial or monogram? Not me!

I guess you will just have to wait and see which one I pick. I know, I know, the suspense :)


Melt my Heart

Sorry I have been slacking lately. We have been busy with company and being out of town but I promise to post lots of updates and pictures of our little cutie soon. 

The sweetest thing happened tonight and I just had to share. The Hubs was getting B ready for bed and he brought him out to say good night to me and said to B, say "love you" and he looked at me and said "I yuv yu." It literally melted my heart and all of the tantrums and whining from the day magically disappeared. It is the little things like this that make being a Mom so worthwhile.
