Shutterfly Christmas cards

I love Shutterfly. They make great quality products and have awesome customer service. Each year I order calendars, photo books and Christmas Cards through them and I have never been disappointed. They even make cute birthday invitations

This year I am looking for something that I can put several pictures on. There are so many to choose from in so many different styles. From simple and elegant to fun and playful. Here are a few of my favorites -

This one is great because it is HOT in Texas and it incorporates our warm climate with a Christmas theme.

I also love the fun feel of this one with it's bright colors! I also love that you can add text to it to share events from the year.

This one is also great because it has such a Christmas feel to it. I love the red and green.

With so many options, such great quality and fast service Shutterfly is the best place to order Christmas Cards and any other photo product from.

My heart aches

Through my job I have come to know a wonderful family. They are truly inspirational - their love for each other and for God never ceases to amaze me. Their sweet daughter has been diagnosed with a rare genetic disease and now is in her final time here on earth. I cannot even imagine the pain that this poor family is going though. Watching their precious daughter and sister crumble before their eyes and now to be on the verge of losing her. Their love and compassion is so amazing as is their faith. I have a lot to learn from them and feel so blessed to be a witness to the strength and faith that they have. May God wrap his loving arms around them and offer them peace and comfort in this trying time. Rest sweet Emma, greater things lie ahead.

I will admit that I am not a big holiday person. Birthdays I love, but general holidays I could go either way on, that is until I became a mom. Noah LOVES holidays, not just the present ones, all of them. He gets so excited for the Fourth of July, Groundhog Day, Halloween, all of them. I love watching him get so excited. You can imagine his excitement about Christmas. Everytime he sees anything red or green at all he asks about Santa and the reindeer. We were listening to the radio and he heard that they will be playing Christmas music soon. He started screaming and singing! I love watching his eyes light up and teaching him new traditions. It is so much fun to see the world through a child's eyes, everything so new and exciting. Now if he would only stop asking when the Easter Bunny is coming!

Can you all take my picture?

This is what my 3 year old asks me on the way home from the pumpkin patch. "Can you and Daddy and Gigi all take my picture on Halloween because i'm so cute?" Well, at least I don't have to worry about a self-confidence problem ;)

I don't seem to be very good at this whole blogging thing. I love to read blogs and I love the idea of them, but never seem to find the time to write.
Yesterday was National Pregnancy and infant loss day. It is so wonderful to have such a day to be able to take time and remember all of our Angels that have left this world all too soon. It gave me a special day to think of the child that I lost in early pregnancy and know that others were praying for him too. I find that as my son gets older I think more and more about the baby that I lost. I wonder what he would have been like. I know that he is watching over us and his little brother and taking care of us.
I love you so much Angel Baby.
