Do you Shutterfly?

So, we finally took our family Christmas photo. It took forEVER. Picture this:
Brian, me, a squirmy Avery, our dog, Louis, who doesn't listen ever, two teddy bears honoring the twins, and a camera with a timer that we have never used before.

I wish I could show you all the random ones along the way to the picture we finally chose!

So after we got the picture done I decided I was going to use Shutterfly to make the cards. I just ordered a super cool photo book from them, too-I love Shutterfly. It's so cheap, and easy, and I love how they deliver right to your house instead of visiting the store with the nasty germ covered photo machines and having to go out in the cold, snowy weather to pick them up!

The other reason I love them is because they just have more choices. My sister married into a family that is Jewish, so I like to send cards with "Happy Holidays" or ones that even say Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Kwanzaa, etc. So I get more options with shutterfly as well.

I went in and designed my card. Here is a picture I did not use, but it's close to the original (I had the wrong one in here before! hehe):

And I think I'll include A's first visit with Santa:

Shutterfly has all sorts of cool stuff. You should check 'em out. Just sayin.

I have to try them one of these days. I've been doing Kodak for years. Cute pictures. Avery with Santa is perfect!

Such a cute photo! I know I'm dog-biased, but seriously, seeing Louis there proudly making sure to be part of the picture cracks me up and makes me think so much of Dixie!! She just assumes that the camera was made for her.

How sweet is that little girl with Santa? She looks like she was made just for his lap!

Two comments, organized Angie-style:

A.) You guys are freaking beautiful.

B.) I freaking love Shutterfly! We ordered calendars of A-Kat for the family for Christmas, and they're gorgeous! I was so happy with how they turned out.

Very cute pictures!! Great job! And I love shutterfly too! I love to make books when I go on a trip or run a race! So fun!!! And I'm looking forward to making ones of my babies one day! My friend did one of her daughter and did a double page for each month, then she had the whole year done--way cute!! And you can just leave it there and add when you have time--so convienent!! Avery is too precious!
