Christmas cards!

I love getting Christmas cards from friends and family every year. 
Some of my favorite pictures that we have sent include - Papa Bear and I in Scotland,

3 pictures of Goldilocks spelling out JOY, newborn Goldilocks in a stocking, Goldilocks tangled up in Christmas lights, and of course the accordion fold card with lyrics from Santa Claus is coming to town. What was your favorite card from us?  Last year we didn't send out cards for the first time ever, but we're ba-ack!

At the moment I haven't decided what card or  to use, but I'm going to use Shutterfly for the Christmas cards this year.  there are about 800 choices WOW.  They have several flat cards I love like the Retro Snowflakes Burst and Sharing the Love.  I don't think we've ever sent a folded card - I like styles Dazzle and Shine or Lovingly Wrapped.  I will probably get one with multiple pictures since it is next to impossible to get a family photo with preschoolers actually looking at the camera!  Remember the Easter family photo attempt? um, yeah.

Shutterfly is now running a promotion for bloggers to receive 50 free Christmas cards (thanks Rebecca!)  Check it out!

Before I order Christmas cards, I need to order some invites for Goldilocks birthday - she is turning 5 very soon!  I'm going to let her pick her favorite card to send to her friends :)
