The One

This is the card that we went with this year to send out to all of our family and friends!  I got this great amazing idea from my bloggy friend Elizabeth over at This Robbin's Nest!

My husband loved the idea when I told him about it and we went with it.  It was so cute to watch Alex walk around Avin wrapping her up.  We even turned them on for a little bit, you can see in the middle picture they are one.  

Normally I would pick a card that showed both the girls faces a little better but we just loved this idea.  My friend Kelly help me make this card and I think it turned out perfect.

I did however order the 50 free cards from Shutterfly and I ordered a super simply card that is close up of the girls.  I will be sending that one and the light one to some family so that they have a nice 5x7 of the girls. I actually ordered a bunch of things from Shutterfly this year for gifts!  Loved how all of them turned out so far and am waiting on a few others to get here.

I am loving getting the mail this time of year and seeing what people picked out for Christmas cards and the pictures they used. I really can not believe that we will be celebrating Christmas with Chads family this weekend and then next week is already Christmas.

Hope everyone is ready for the weekend.  I am off to clean and get this house ready for guests.  
Don't forget to enter my three giveaways.  Two of the giveaways will end tonight! 

These are the pictures that I took for Alex and Avin Christmas Session 2010.  Let me tell you it is not that easy to keep Avin in one place and Alex always looking at the Camera.

Super cute! I just threw the boys in their pj's in a chair in front of the tree, snapped and decided it was good enough.Totally got Scrooge-like this year. Next year I'll get more creative!
