Gratitude Journals

This year we had Will and Ky do a gratitude journal. Each day they would write, or color in Ky's case, something that they were thankful for. Here are some highlights....

Thankful for my head and my brain.

Thankful that Kyra can come over and play.
Thankful that Daddy can go to work.
Thankful that we can drink.
Thankful that we can put makeup on.
Thankful that we can play on the I pod.
Thankful that we can curl our hair.

Holiday Cards!

Well it's that time again. Christmas Cards aaahhhhh!!! Actually I really love doing Christmas cards, cause it's a fun way to show off how cute your kids are without being all.....MY KIDS are SO cute. Especially people that you haven't seen in awhile. Also I love doing my Christmas letter cause it's a great journal entry for myself.

This year for my Christmas Cards I am going to look at Shutterfly. They have SO many cute ones to choose from. I had a really hard time choosing but here are a few of my favorite. YOu can go here to check them out http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/holiday-cards

I LOVE this one for many reasons. First I love the brown with the traditional Christmas colors, so classy. Second, it say Merry Christmas because this is after all a holiday for Christ and I don't like to be politically correct:), and Third cause I can put a picture of each kid!
This might MIGHT be my favorite though.

It's just so classy and elegant. And I think it would look really good with my pictures.
And Finally...
I like this one just because it's so Christmassy (is that a word). All the right colors, the right sayings, and again I can put a picture of each kid.
hmmmm how will I ever decide!!
