Well blogger friends, let me just thank you for making me feel normal in my love for getting excited for Christmas a little early... I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one! Christmas stuff is popping up all over blog-land and I love it!
One of the first Christmasey things I start thinking about is our annual Christmas photo card. I start way back in September at the first hint of fall. Should we do a pic or just the kids? What do we wear? Where should we take them? Casual or formal? Outdoors or indoors? Should we all wear white? Should we all wear black? Maybe we should wear different colors...
It seems every year even though I start thinking about them way back in September I'm always frantically trying to get them printed and sent out so that they will arrive by Christmas.
This year I'm not doing that, no sirree. I'm getting those suckers sent out at the beginning of December (because any earlier is just a little too early, for me anyway).
But, I will not sacrifice style just to get my cards out early. Usually I design my own but I found some of the cutest Christmas and Holiday cards on Shutterfly! This will help me make my no-stress-early-mailing-of- Christmas-cards goal a reality!
I have used Shutterfly to print tons of photos and a photobook so I know they use great quality photo paper and the shipping is always prompt. As I write this Shutter fly is having a sale of 20% off these products!
I've decided between the two of these. I love the elegant simplicity of both of them...

While I'm at it I can order some Christmas presents for the grandparents. These cute photo calendars filled with pics of the grandkids, how can you go wrong with that!? :)
You can personalize it and put pictures on the calendar days, how cool is that?! Check out more here. http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars/wall-calendars
