Christmas Cards

It's FINALLY that time of year. The time when we fill our calendars with Christmas activities, our stockings with goodies and our mailboxes with letters. I for one am super excited about our Christmas cards this year. I haven't designed them just yet, but have already picked out my template from Shutterfly all I have to do now is get our pictures done.

I use the website for all of my photo projects from cards to books and have been so happy with the selections they offer as well as their pricing and shipping options. I first used Shutterfly last winter for our family Christmas cards. There were literally hundreds of designs to choose from which was nice. They had every color, size, paper option, photo count you could imagine. And for me, options usually mean stress, but Shutterfly makes it easy. They allow you to search by card size, color, photo count and on and on. Once you select what you want, they make it easy. All you have to do it upload the pictures you want and "ta da" you're good to go. Shipping is great too because it comes either straight to your house or can be sent directly to the person(s) of your choosing. Last year I waited until the last minute to order, and even during the holiday rush, my cards made it to me very quickly.

I was so impressed by my Christmas experience with Shutterfly that I used them again for Saint Patrick's Day and for Eli's birthday inviations.

While I love all of the ordering options from Shutterfly, my favorite thing is their archiving service. It's fast, free and easy. Last month our camera (with more than 800 pictures) was stolen. I had loaded all of them but twenty to Shutterfly. Now all of my memories are preserved, and I am forever thankful for that.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
