This year, we'll be creating our own Christmas cards and are so excited about using Shutterfly. We have ordered photobooks and personalized gifts from them in the past. The catalog came in the mail last week and there are so many great designs to choose from! It will be hard to narrow them down to one. So far, these are just a few of my favorites (make sure you hold down the Ctrl key when you click, or this page will close):
I thought this would be so cute with the girls. Look, one of the names on here is even Carly! :)
I definitely want something that we can add a few pictures to. It will be hard enough to narrow it down to one card design...I don't want to have to narrow it down to one picture too! (this is me being "the glass is half full" and assuming we'll have several great ones. :) )
Can you believe Christmas is almost here again??!!
***(Shuttefly is already an awesome site. What makes them even more awesome? This! They are giving away 50 Free Christmas Cards to bloggers. )***

Sometimes I wonder who is learning from whom??
(whom? is that right? I never could keep that straight. :) )

Days like this are what keep me going after horrible days like yesterday.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

Having Kids- We have two and people are constantly asking us when we are going to have another one. I think it's partly because some people cannot imagine that we could be happy with two girls (especially Andrew) and we just HAVE to try for a boy. I am perfectly happy (and stressed out :)) with two...
but at what point do people start making the "You're done now, right?" comments and talking rudely behind the parents back about them not getting the concept of birth control. I get so frustrated with people criticizing The Duggars (http://tlc.discovery.com/tv/duggars/ if you don't know who they are). Yes,they have a lot of kids, but they also pay for everything outright, homeschool their children, and seem to be a great family. There are people with 6 kids that have better control and better behaved children than others with only 1 child.
Weight- When you are overweight, no one will admit it to you. You know it and they know it, but (thankfully) most people are nice enough not to tell you. Then you lose weight and suddenly people are making snide comments about you, about what you are or aren't eating, how much you exercise,etc...and you still have weight to lose to be considered healthy.
So, this is mostly just a rant that I've been wanting to get off my chest for awhile.
I just noticed my layout was a Christmas layout and my last post was on my birthday, in December!
Our new computer started disconnecting any time I try to read anyone's blog or do anything with mine. It's really annoying and I can't figure out why. So, we never sold the old one so I'm forced to use a small screen in order to see around the large gray streak that goes from the top to the bottom.
