These are a few of my Favorite Things...

One of my favorite parts of this season is getting Christmas cards in the mail! It’s so fun to see how my friends and family have changed, grown, experienced in the past year. Last year was our first year to make a family Christmas Card to send out, and I plan on doing it again this year thanks to Shutterfly. They are having a promotion where bloggers can get 50 Christmas Cards for free when they write a blog about their new Holiday/Christmas Card collection. I have used Shutterfly for various different personalized photography products and am really excited about the chance to order our Christmas cards from them this year! I love creating our own Christmas cards because it gives me a chance to highlight significant moments of our family throughout the year. It’s simple because I just download pictures straight from my computer into the card, and its fun to create something that is unique for our own family’s personality. You can see some of the many Shutterfly designs here Christmas photo cards: or holiday cards to You can add 3 or more pictures on the cards. They have selections of flat photo cards, folded cards, or stationary cards. The designs are adorable and their collection this year has so much to choose from though, it is going to be hard to pick which design to use.
They also have wall calendars (you can find them here poster calendars to ). I design and give one to my mom every Christmas, and I think that she expects one now :)
So if you need Christmas cards this year or some great personalized gifts, check out the links above. And if you have your own blog and want to sign up for this great promotion to get some free Christmas cards go here!

Hubby's a Preacher

I just wanted to share a link to Mike's first sermon with anyone interested. He preached from Mark 14 on "A Faith that Serves" yesterday at our church, and though I'm biased, I think he did an amazing job delivering God's word! As a proud wife, just wanted to give y'all an opportunity to hear. Praise God for his work in and through our lives!

Just copy and paste the link below and it should take you right to the sermon.
