For the past (almost) 4 months I have felt like I couldn’t get ahead, and in fact felt way behind. I’ve missed birthdays, I’ve forgotten play dates, I’ve had trouble remembering my name. But finally I feel like I am ahead of the game on something. Well, at least not behind anyway. I have a lot of my Christmas shopping done! But, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas cards. For the past several years that we’ve lived up North, we’ve included a snap shot in our cards. R and I take a photo of ourselves in the snow. Our friends and family down South think this is pretty funny since some of them have never even seen snow! This year, I’m really hoping it snows one big snow pretty soon, or else we’re going to have to figure something else out because I want to get going on the holiday cards soon! And I really want M’s first appearance on our Holiday card to be special!
I just heard a promotion that Shutterfly.com is having – they are giving bloggers 50 free holiday cards for exploring and then promoting their site. What better motivation to get going on my holiday card! I think I’ll choose one with a single picture, and probably get the matte version. I prefer a simple design without a lot of clutter. And oh my goodness, these Holiday party invitations almost make me want to have one! Oh and I love these calendars! Maybe next year once I have enough pictures of Miss M from each season I will make one for the grandparents. I’ve had the desk version sitting on my desk all year, with each month highlighting a piece of art made by my nieces and it’s just so neat!
I figure, I can go to shutterfly.com and pick out my card, get everything all ready and then plug in the snow picture when we get one! If not, we might ALL have to sit on Santa’s lap!
I’m photographing Santa at HartfordStage in a couple of weeks if you guys want to come by. It is a great set and the photog does a pretty good job too!
I am almost 3/4 of the way done with my christmas shopping already. So very exciting. I can’t wait for Margeaux’s first christmas card. Oh and P.S., I will need to see you before your trip to give you a little something for M and the holidays.
