Jingle Bells Are Ringing . . . Can You Hear Them?

It is November!

I am typing that more for my own benefit than anyone else's.

How has time passed by so quickly this year?

I had such great intentions for the year.  With Peanut in school all day every day, and Pumpkin in school for 2.5 hours every day, I was going to have so much time to get things done.   Where did my time go?

I planned to get family pictures taken.  I planned to send out my Christmas cards before Christmas this year.  (Actually sending them out at all would be make me a step ahead from last year.  Oops!)  I even had the cards picked out.  Well, my cards might not arrive as early as I'd hoped, nor have the pictures I'd imagined, but it will get done.   Thankfully, the quality of Shutterfly's cards means that they'll look good even if they aren't "perfect".

In the past I have ordered at least one photobook from Shutterfly every year.  I have also ordered calendars as holiday gifts for grandparents.  I have even ordered Thank you cards.  (I love to create thank you cards with images of the girls on them.  Inside I type a standard thank you greeting leaving a blank space for the girls to fill in the item they received.  I also leave plenty of space for them to add their own note of appreciation or a drawing of them using the gift.)   Each time I place an order, I always ended up being more than happy with the results.  While I haven't ordered Christmas Cards in the past, based on all my other experiences I have to believe that they would be amazing!  From cards with one photo to an entire collage, the selection is extensive.   Now, if only I could find a nice picture . . .
