Christmas Cards..

Since I'm in a Christmas type mood, I thought I would post about it. Do you send Christmas cards? Receive them? Now, with 2 children, I'm hoping that I can keep up and still send them out.
Usually, we buy our Christmas cards the prior year when they are on a super sale, but, this year, I thought that we should do a "photo" christmas card since right now, our family is complete.

Then, when I heard that Shutterfly was doing a amazing deal and you can get 50 free cards, I jumped on the chance to do it. Super easy, and hardly any work. Just put a stamp on it and mail.

Some of my favorite cards and products from Shutterfly..

Now, these are a HUGE hit in our fmaily. My sister used to get these for myself and my mom when it was just 1 nephew, it was a pratical gift and we loved them.
And, who does not use a calendar

Now, these MUST be my favorite. My sister has a couple of these up in her house and I love them. I want to get some of my children when Baby T gets to the sitting up stage. I love wall art

And, one more of my favorites from them.. more cards

So, head over there, check out your favorites, and let me know which one are your favorites.

And, anyone else who blogs about this, can get 50 free cards.. follow this link..

Back in California....

and what a change we all have went threw. N is finally home. After 8 long months, he finally came home on September 23rd. Thankfully, we won't have to do another deployment like that again for a long time. He does leave again in the new year for 3 months and will miss yet another birthday, and anniversary.

We did the drive back from Florida to California a little over a month ago. I do not recommend that drive to anyone, we did it twice in the last year and I can thankfully say that Delta will provide my transportation from now on. The drive was easy, T was a super easy baby, slept most of the time. G watched his movies and played in the back seat. And, I had my husband drive the whole way.. he was a trooper, well, mainly because we were pulling a trailer and me with a trailer driving a SUV don't mix.
Crazy story, we stopped in Tombstone, AZ and stayed at a hotel there and as we were getting out of the car to check in, our back window of our car shattered. N thinks that it was because we were in Tombstone and some "ghost" did it. I don't believe that story one bit. I like to think that it was elevation and air pressure. The hotel we stayed in was creepy. I felt out of place there. It just had a different feel to it.

G just recently had his 3rd birthday, we can't believe our little man is 3 already! Where did the time go, seriously?

And, because, licking the ice cream is much better than using your spoon

T is just as sweet as can be. He's such an easy baby, and is always smiling or laughing about something.. he melts my heart.

He was 3 months here..

And, now, our big little boy at 5 months. I can't even begin to imagine that he's already 5 months! Time sure has flown for us..

ok, well, my computer isn't letting me upload any more pictures.. so his 5 months will have to wait...
