Shutterfly Holiday Cards

With Halloween on its way out, now is the perfect time to get a jump start on holiday preparations. Choosing a Christmas card is one of my favorite holiday tasks. I tend to pick the card and then stage the picture to suit the layout. Its probably not the quickest way, but it allows me to be creative to make sure my card stands out. This year, Shutterfly has tons of new designs guaranteed to suit just about every family. It seems like this year they have many more modern designs than in the past, utilizing bright colors and more artistic backgrounds.
Here are a few of my favorites picks on the Shutterfly site:

The Mod Ornaments Holiday Card is for when you fall in love with that one perfect close up of your little one.

The Love 2010 Holiday Card is fun card for keeping family near and far updated on your family's past year. I really like how you can sum up important details in just a few words to keep your Christmas card from turning into a novel.

Merry Memories Blue will automatically stand out in the stack of holiday cards due to its unique perfect square size. This card holds a whopping 5 photos to give everyone in the family a close up.

Happy card-choosing!

Fun Visitors

One of the best things about living in Columbus is that it's right smack dab in the middle of several major highways so we get lots of visitors. On Sunday Great Aunt Christine and Great Uncle Paul stopped by for crepes on their way home from Vermont.


Sadie modeling a dress from her great aunt and playing with necklaces.


Monday night the Thorpe family and friends took a breather on a long trip home from Buffalo. Can you tell we were glad to see them?


Thanks again for the visits and we wish we could see you all more often!

Girls' Weekend

Today was the big Westgate neighborhood garage sale. Though there wasn't as big of a turn out this year that didn't stop Chris from racking up the bargains early in the morning while Sadie and I slept. Our friends, Jake and Jenny, and their adorable girls, Madison and Emerie, came over to bargain hunt with us.

Everyone's smiling!

In the evening the Snow family came back for a free cookout I won online. We sampled 4 different flavors of bbq sauce and ate some horrible lettuce. Apparently you have to water lettuce every day or tastes like a bee sting, who knew? The girls played in the sandbox and ran around like crazy. It was a blast!

Yum!

Little Miss Bossy


This week Sadie has started telling us what to do. She figured out that if she pushes or pulls you to where she wants you to go, she will get her way a lot faster. I mean, who can resist a little cutie grabbing your hand and saying, "Mommy come here"? Chris bought her a little teepee at World Market for our upcoming Denver trip. Nothing makes Sadie happier than being squished in the tent with Mommy and Daddy. The weather has been crazy hot and she's had a little bit of a cough so we've had to spend more time indoors than we would normally. Luckily she adores Tinkerbell and the Princess and the Frog so we've managed.
