Snow Day!!!

Hey Guys! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We did, the kids got lots of things, we had some great food & we got a White Christmas! I think it had been like 40 some years since my area had seen snow on Christmas day & boy did we get some snow! We got somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-8 inches! Of course the next day the kids wanted to get out in it! Here are some pictures of our snow day!!!

Shutterfly, Oh how I will love thee......

I came across a blog post from a friend of mine, posting about Shutterfly. It's an online photo mecca, where you can create all things photo. I've heard of them before but never really looked into it. Well I am glad I did, I was looking at the HUGE assortment of Christmas cards they have & just could not believe the selection. I think that's going to make it very hard when I choose what type of Christmas card to send out for my family.

Here are a few that I really like. What do you think? They have several types to choose from. There are folded cards & flat cards. So many to chose from.....


There are so many to choose from! I know that Shutterfly  will be something I can use all year round not just for Christmas. They have cards for every occasion under the moon. Not to mention some pretty cute
calendars. Now those are the gift that keeps giving all year long. Talk about a great gift for a grandparent, or someone in another state. How Cute!  They also have some other photo gifts, from mugs, to keepsake ornaments. Just so much to name.

Now I have got to get the family together to take a Christmas picture & use Shutterfly for getting some cards. It's so hard to believe that this year is almost over. Then I will be looking into what I can use this great online photo company for in the new year.

Little Star....A Book Review

Little Star
Anthony DeStefano

I recently received a copy of this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was excited to get this in. We already have several books about Christmas, and looked forward to
adding another to our collection.  This book is about Little Star, a small unnoticed star. He and all the other
stars have been told that the birth of a king is soon to come. When this day arrives none of the other stars believe that a king could be born in a stable, but Little Star realizes that that is our king. He shines so
brightly among all the other stars, all in his effort to keep the tiny baby warm. He was the only one to understand the King's message, it was love.

It was a wonderful story, I enjoyed the pictures & the meaning of this story. I look forward to this becoming
a book we read each & every Christmas.

Our First Snowfall of the Season!

We got our first snowfall this past Saturday, it turned out to be a
little more than what was expected, but I think we ended up with somewhere in
the neighborhood of 2 1/2 - 3 inches. It's not much, but it by far came a lot earlier in
the year than it normally does here in the south.  This is the kind of snow I like, it snows a
little, melts away really fast & causes little problems!
Needless to say today there is hardly any snow, but it is soo cold & windy!

Thankful to be standing behind the glass door!

Now where did I sit my hot chocolate?????
