30 Days of Thankfulness

November 24, 2010
Today I am thankful fo r quiet family time.  After a very busy day trying to get everything done (and it is!) it sure is nice to be able to sit in my warm living room as the rain hits the windows and relax with my hubby, playing on our laptops.  Candles are burning, we had some yummy dessert, an awesome dinner, and our va(stay)cation has begun.  I love my life. 

Shutterfly for Christmas - Fa La la la la FREE!

Guess what time of year it is?  It is time to get those Christmas cards ready to send out!  Yes, I am one of THOSE people.  I love to write my letter and send out a family picture to my dearest family and friends. What better way to show the special people how much your family has changed!  I love receiving the photos and I keep them all in my Christmas Scrapbook!!  It is so much fun to see how much families change over the years.  I've started thinking about this years picture and what cards to get - I think I might have the picture nailed but it is a secret -  I've been doing some looking and have found some fantastic products over at Shutterfly !!  There are tons of card options where you can put YOUR family picture or chose one that has lots of room for numerous pictures and don't forget to add me to your list!!  Looking through the options, I came across the following cards and love them all.  Now I need to decide which one will be THE one :

See why it is so hard to decide????  You can find these selections and sooo many more here at Shutterfly.

There are also some other fantastic things at Shutterfly.  You can get some incredible gifts - grandparents LOVE getting Calendars with pictures of the grand kids throughout the year.  Just pick your pictures and plug them into the great Calendar options available! 

We have a 1st birthday party coming up soon and what better place to get our invitations than from Shutterfly!  Look at these great Ideas you can chose from!

I have to be honest, I thought I had mine picked out for Nate - the second picture above but than I saw the first picture . . .and I'm not so sure!!!  I have to order this weekend though, so I'll have to decide soon!

You might be wondering why I'm telling you all of this?  Well, Shutterfly has a great promotion for bloggers to receive free photo cards, how could I not promote the product??  If you want to find more out about this opportunity just check out Shutterfly and read the info!

Song of the Week - Pam Thum; Life is hard but God Is Good

The boys and I listen to a lot of music everyday so i've pulled out all of my CD's and am enjoying them fully.   I hadn't listened to Pam Thum in years - and this is one of my all time favorite songs, ever. There is so much truth in this song and it is just a gentle reminder of the truth that God Is Always Good even when Life is Hard.   Take time to listen, I think you will be touched by it too.  I wish I could add it to my player but it isn't a choice so I added another song by her instead.  She has such an awesome voice :-)
