Getting a head start on Christmas

Well now that Halloween has passed you know what that means, Thanksgiving barely gets a mention and we are straight on to Christmas. So that means I better get started now or I will be so behind I will never be ready in time.

My first priority-Christmas Cards! Last year I used Shutterfly and I absolutely loved how my cards turned out.

They have tons of Christmas cards to choose from. You can get folded cards, flat stationary cards or photo cards.  I usually can't decide on a favorite picture so I always pick the type that I can add multiple photos to here are a couple of my favorites.


But they don't just to cards they also have tons of gift ideas. Like photo mugs, Stickers (which are a great way to label all those things they take to school with them), & shopping bags just to name a few. You can also make calendars and come on what grandparent doesn't love 12mths of different pictures of their favorite little boys and girls and they also have photo books, which I have done more than once & they always turn out great.

Also right now if you head over to their Special Offers page they have some great deals on tons of items. So head over to their sign up page and you will get 50 free 4*6 prints just for creating an account.

Pumpkin Patch and Trick or Treating

Last week Abby got to go on her first ever field trip, she was so excited! For the last 4yrs she has listened to Wyatt talk about school and field trips and now that it is finally her turn to get in on all the action she is loving it.  She has really adjusted to school great and is still LOVING Kindergarten.  She was also pretty excited to get to ride the bus, it was pretty funny when she asked where the seat belts were as they were about to load up :)

We ended up have a gorgeous day & seeing how just two days later it was raining and 40degrees I say we were extremely lucky!

They got to pick out a pumpkin
This is her "corn angel"

They also had a great Halloween, we went to our friend's house again for their annual Halloween Party.
One of her favorite treats! caramel apple

I have said many times that I lost my battle with Wyatt a few years ago on costume selection.  Now he is what ever cheesy Star Wars character or Ninja that he thinks has the coolest accessories at the time of costume choosing.  This year it was a Ninja (again), but hey at least it's easy and it makes him happy and that's what counts right?  sure

But I can still decide for influence Abby's choice for Halloween attire, I feel like I have her for a couple more years at least :)  This year I "helped" her decide to be a 50's girl.  Her doll Ella also has an outfit so I thought they would be so cute together.  I am glad I was right:)


Monday is also her 50th day of school and they are doing 50's day, she is super excited she gets to wear her costume again. They are gonna have a sock hop and make coke floats! It's no wonder she loves Kindergarten they are always doing some party or super fun activity.
