Shutterfly Cards

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is giving and receiving Christmas cards and getting updates from family and friends. For the past several years, I have purchased my holiday photo cards from Shutterfly. Their quality is great and their prices are very reasonable.

One of the things that I love about Shutterfly is that you can choose a variety of pictures and put them all on one card! This is so helpful with large families like mine, because it would take a miracle to get 4 young boys all looking AND smiling in the same picture. I am planning on using Shutterfly again this year and can't wait to get started.

Shutterfly has hundreds of cards to choose from and this year they have three great design options to choose from.
  1. Folded greeting cards (available in 5X7 size)
  2. Flat stationery cards (available in 5X5 and 5X7 sizes)
  3. Flat photo cards (available in 4X8 and 5X7 sizes)
Shutterfly also has great photo gift options:
Make a photo calendar and share your favorite family pictures all year long plus important family dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. This is my mother-in-law's favorite gift, and she requests a new one each year.
How about a photo mug to show off your cute kiddos? My father-in-law's favorite coffee mug is one of my older kiddos from several years back that I made at Shutterfly. It has really held up well, and I love looking back at how much they have grown and changed.

Shutterfly is a real life saver at my house during the holidays.

A friend took pictures of the boys yesterday. We took them at the Academic Building at Texas A&M. The Corps of Cadets was also taking pictures there at the same time, and lets just say the boys had a hard time focusing on the task at hand. Here are the best ones from yesterday.
