It's a Crafty Christmas with Shutterfly!


I'm always trying to alert my friends and family of great deals out there when I find them, so let me take just a few minutes to blog about an offer
from Shutterfly. Shutterfly is a website that allows you to create all kinds of products and gifts from your photos. Several years ago I created a photobook on their website with all my pictures from our trip to Cancun. It turned out great and made an awesome gift to give to the other travelers on our trip. Navigating the site is quite easy and in no time you can create a masterpiece! If you're like me and not very creative the site offers many template designs for all their products so you do not have to feel like you are out there on your own. In addition to photo products they also offer prints and enlargements. I have ordered their prints in the past as well and they ship them very quickly and are of good quality. This year I plan on using the site to create my Christmas cards. I can't reveal which one I have chosen, but it's adorable. I love it because it has a slot for multiple photos. It's so hard to pick just one photo when your kids are so cute! Check out Shutterfly's holiday cards here http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards.
Be sure to check out their other products such as their calendars here
or their birthday cards here

For bloggers this holiday season Shutterfly will give you 50 free photo cards if you blog about your experience with them. Check out the offer at the link below.

Now I'll leave you with a pic of my cuties...can't share any of my
Christmas card photos,
but here's a tease for you!

Strawberry Pickin'

I know I haven't blogged in ages, but I'm still waiting on Kim to give me the Parallels software for Mac, so I can blog with ease. It's just completely frustrating having to upload pics so slowly to Blogger. Anyway, Chris had some co-workers in from Israel and Oregon, so we took them to pick some yummy strawberries!







This is one of Chris' co-worker's sons. Caroline loved trying to help him fill his basket with strawberries after she had filled hers.


Isn't he just the cutest thing ever???

EdVenture with Granddougie

Granddougie wanted to take Caroline to EdVenture, the children's museum. We had a blast. Here they are by the world's biggest boy, Eddie.















This is actually the ramp to get on the boat, but Caroline thinks anything with a slight incline can be used as a slide.

Pants on the Ground

Caroline LOVES the song "Pants on the Ground" from last week's American Idol. Click on the link to see the video of civil rights activist, Larry Platt, singing his song about his outrage towards young men who are disrespecting their culture by dressing inappropriately.

Now see Caroline singing her new favorite song! :)

25 Months


Would someone please tell me where the time has gone? Caroline is already 25 months old! Gracious! She is such a wonderfully sweet little girl (most of the time). We are potty training right now which has been so much fun. She's doing pretty well. We're at least out of diapers and only wearing a pull-up at night. The accidents are minimal. At least that's what I keep telling myself!

EdVenture Children's Museum

Caroline and I went on a little Edventure last night. Edventure is the local children's museum. Below you will see Eddie, a giant boy. The kids can explore all inside his body. Caroline had a blast. I could hardly keep up with her running all over the place. She was so excited. It's almost impossible to get a picture of her in focus because she doesn't stand still for anything!

Goal!
Now tell me again what I'm supposed to do with this.
