Three More Days!!

In three days, we will empty the attic, clear out some of our living room furniture, clean up a bit, and then DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS! I get so excited. Christmas is, by far, my favorite time of year. Everyone is so happy and carefree during the holiday season, and I love it. People smile at you when you walk by them- even at the MALL! The Christmas Spirit is an amazing thing. I wish it carried through the whole year. But, since it doesn't, I enjoy it to the fullest while it's here. I respect the turkey, so the Friday after Thanksgiving is when we bust out the Christmas decorations, holiday songs, and hot cocoa (yes, even if we have the AC on). Another reason we decorate "early" is so that we can take our family picture in front of our decorated, beautiful tree. For the past two years of our married lives, that has been our tradition to use for our Christmas cards. We've always used Shutterfly for this since they have so many cute styles, it's easy to use, and they're reliable. (Actually, we use Shutterfly for everything- photo books, calendars, prints, etc.) We even included Jeffrey's birth announcement in our photo card last year! The same will be done this year. Usually, our family pic is the front, but I think we're going to change it up a bit this year and make Jeffrey the focus. Since it doesn't cost anymore to have another photo on this inside cover, that's where we'll put the family one.

Check out the cute new styles they have this year: Shutterfly Holiday Cards
We're leaning towards this one...
