shutterfly christmas cards 2011 (w/giveaway)

you may (or may not) have noticed that we did not send out any christmas cards last year.  i honestly don't know what happened.  we missed christmas so we thought we'd send new year's cards.  then that was gone so we joked about sending martin luther king jr. day cards.  or valentine's. or easter...or...


we are going to send christmas cards.  i hereby declare it (so hold me accountable). 

what do you think of these?

i know, right?  how on earth can i choose?  although, i have to admit, i wish i could buy those family pictures.  ours never turn out...quite so...artistic.  if i sent you one of those cards with those kids on it, you could pretend those were our kids, couldn't you?  (oh great.  all of a sudden i'm thinking that i made that same comment last year.  am i really so redundant?)

anyway, what i like about shutterfly is that they have a great selection of cards at really great prices.  if you aren't into christmas, they also have a selection of holiday cards or greeting cards that would be perfect for this time of year.

they also have a great selection of gifts to choose from as well.  once you've done the work of uploading your photos, why not get a few on playing cards, mugs, ornaments, calendars or photo books as well?  i love the personalized story book they have, or, oooo, the wall decal.  i know tate would love a wall-sized photo of himself playing soccer...

 i am happy to say that i have the opportunity to offer three (3) readers an opportunity to win 25 cards of their choice.  just leave me a comment below describing your favorite holiday photo either of you and/or your family, or the favorite one you received from someone else.  i will choose a winner using on november 18 (in honor of my sister's birthday).  must be 18 to enter; united states residents only.

i received free holiday cards from shutterfly as a thank you for writing this post.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.


  1. I love the picture of my son with a bow on his head (7 months old) laughing away infront of the christmas tree!

  2. One time I took a picture of CM in the middle of a big bunch of fake poinsettas. It was so CUTE!!

    (For some reason it wouldn't let me leave a comment with my gmail account. Said I wasn't registered to do so.)

  3. I remember an old picture at Mom and Dad's house of us in my grandparents' living room at Christmas time. My granddaddy is sitting in a chair with a big smile on his face while we all open presents. So sweet!

  4. The picture we took of Gabriel the day we brought him home from the NICU, sticking out of us own Christmas stocking crying (he was chilly, poor guy).
