New Line of Cards From Shutterfly

I love making cards. Birthday cards, greeting cards, birth announcements, Christmas cards... you name it. It's a hobby that adds just a little stress, since I always have to top my last one.

But Shutterfly has a new line of cards that can help me out, and take some of that stress away.

They're launching Treat, a new brand of greeting cards, that makes it easy for all you over-achievers to send one-of-a-kind greetings, for whatever reason you can dream up! And all the major holidays and occasions, of course.

To kickoff the new line, they're giving away one free card to every one of my readers.

All you have to do is visit Treat, and enter code TREATBLOGR at checkout. But you have to hurry! It's only good on Monday, November 19 and Tuesday, November 20.

Send someone you love a completely personalized card from Treat, and let them know how special they are to you.

First Day of School

I realize school started 12 weeks ago. I do. But I'm a little behind with the picture-taking and blogging and laundry and whatnot.

I've had these pictures sitting in a draft for a while, and just found it.

This is what little Carlito looked like twelve weeks ago.

She's such a sweet, beautiful little baby.

And here's her sweet, beautiful big sister on the first day of school.

And her adorable big brother on the first day of school.

And here's what I bribed his teacher with. I knew it was going to be a rough time for him, and it most definitely was. So I gave her a care package on the first day to help get her through. She's an amazing teacher.

Here they are in front of our fireplace. Back then it wasn't finished. I'm now happy to say it's done, and I'm typing away in front of it, wishing it's cold enough outside to have a fire in it. Sigh. Fall in South Texas.

They're so sweet. And growing waaaaay too fast.

Speaking of growing waaaaay too fast... here's Carlito Burrito twelve weeks ago...

And here she is now, in her new hat, in her new chair, in her new home.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

I wanted to post the winner of the Shutterfly contest a looooong time ago... but we moved into our new house right when the contest ended.

 We went 10 days without any phone service at all... and over 2 weeks with no internet. It was not a fun time.

 Soooooo... the winner of the contest is...

Which was this comment:


Thank you all for entering. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
