Holiday cards and gifts on the mind with a GIVEAWAY!

It's right around the corner... the holidays! Shutterfly is teaming up with bloggers again to promote their new holiday line of cards, and WOW, they out-do themselves each year. I always enjoy compiling my favorite photos and creating a one-of-a-kind card to show friends and family how the kids have grown. I even slip a card from each year into the kid's photo albums. Some recipients have even framed the cards!
Here is our card from last year:
I used a folded card last year, a one-sided card the year before and will probably do a two-sided card this year. I like to change it up!
(as you can see, I used the un-official, or is it official(?) tag line from this blog!)

Last year I created small photo books for the boys to give as gifts to grandparents and godparents. I made one for each child as a stocking stuffer and keepsake as well. You can't beat such a personalized gift!

Here is a page from last year's photo book:

I would love to win some cards. I've been reading your blog since it started. I also have a three year old son with a G-tube and feeding disorder, so I can relate to so much of what you write.

I just got Marley's pics done yesterday and opted out of the cards. Never hurts to try for something free! Boys are lookin' good!
