Christmas Card Update

A few weeks ago I posted about how Shutterfly was giving 50 free holiday cards to bloggers who wrote a post about Shutterfly.  I finally got around to designing and ordering my cards last night and I saved a whopping $106 at checkout!  That Shutterfly blog post was the best 5 minutes I think I've spent blogging in a long time.

Christmas cards are ordered and should be here next week. Now I'll just have to address them...  :)

This Thanksgiving was a tiny bit different than last year.  Remember those tiny babies in the above picture?  That was 1 year ago.   This year those tiny little sleeping babies ate turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, green bean casserole, spinach casserole, and crescent rolls (and banana. But that wasn't really part of their "Thanksgiving" meal.  They just loooooove bananas!).  Yum! 

The weather got really chilly Thanksgiving weekend and we were able to finally break out the winter coats and the awesome owl hats that Emily made for Ana and Javi!  They love their hats and don't try to take them off!  They look so sweet walking around the cul-de-sac with their little hats on :)

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

We had the annual AMOM breakfast with Santa this morning.  It was really fun.  I look forward to going in the future when Ana and Javi are old enough to participate in the crafts, the face painting and when they actually know who this "Santa" guy is. 

This was their first time seeing Santa and I think they did okay.  Ana was more interested in walking around the room.  She didn't really want to sit on Santa's, or anyone's, lap.  Javi was so happy sitting with Santa.  He just sat and stared at him for a long long time.  There was no line for Santa, and he said that he didn't mind holding him, so they sat there for quite a while  :) 

I don't want to spoil our Christmas card that all 7 of my readers will be receiving, so I'll leave you with these pictures that pretty much sum up the day...
