2010 Christmas Cards

Well, it's almost the end of November, so it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards. This was our card last year.

I loved the way it turned out. I just made it in Photoshop, but I think I'm going to try out Shutterfly this year. They have some awesome designs to choose from.
I"m trying to decide between this one, this one and this one. There are so many great designs to choose from. I love the ones with several pics, but we'll see how well my kids cooperate for more than one pose!

Don't forget to check our Shutterfly's wall calendars and canvas wall art. Both would make great presents for grandparents!!

Do you want to get 50 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly this year? Check this out :

Do you send Christmas cards? Do you send photo cards or premade cards? Well, it's almost time to send those babies out, so you'd better get to it!

Halloween at our House

I have been such an amazingly bad blogger lately. Oh well, there are more important things in life. I do love documenting our outings, projects and just everyday life, though, so I'm attempting to get back at it.

Here are some pics from Halloween:

Beetle decided to declothe (Is that how you spell it? ...if that's even a word!) himself and jump on the trampoline while K & E drew faces on their pumpkins.

Then there was the messy part.

I think this was the first year that they actually pulled most of the guts out by themselves.

We had a variation of costumes this year
E and B were Jesse and Woody for our church Fall Festival.

K was originally gonna be Buzz, but I think he decided that might be a little juvenile for a mature 8 year old and decided to be a basketball player.

On Halloween night, E switched it up and was a ballerina, I think. K was still a basketball player and the Woody costume was falling apart by this time, so I just threw a jersey on B.

We had a great time and still have LOTS of candy left!

Well, we'll see if I can keep up with blogging a little better. I have some updated house pics to share, so I'm going to try to get those up soon!

Where did October go?

It's been over a month since I have last blogged! Trust me, I've been busy. So here's what's happened since September 13th (my last post).

This boy turned 8!

We went to a lot of football/cheer practice and games.

We had a great fall break where we went to Gatlinburg!!

E's cheer squad took 1st place overall at cheer competition!

Then she turned 6!

And finally, my friend and I participated in a craft show at her office. We had tons of fun and actually sold stuff!

During all this, our church was going through the book, Radical by David Platt. As a church we have several commitments (you can find them here)- two of which are reading through the Bible in a year and praying for the whole country throughout the year. This really has been an awesome experience so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing how God uses it to bring us all closer to Him and to make more of a difference!

So, that's it in a nutshell! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with blogging a little better, but we'll see!
