Christmas Cards

If you're thinking I'm going to be blogging about Shutterfly's Christmas cards, fear not! Because I'm not blogging about them, I'm a Snapfish girl and that's who I ordered my cards from, so I won't even be mentioning Shutterfly.

The other night Sean, Boomer and I took our pictures for our first photo Christmas card. Our orginal plans were to go take the picture in front of a local villa, but with the constant deluge of rain we've gotten almost everyday for the past 2 months, that wasn't possible. Instead I rummaged around in my Christmas decorations, found a few things I could use as a background, set-up the tripod and took a few pics.

I LOVED how our pictures turned out. I think what really makes them is Boomer. His little face is hilarious! Also entertaining is Sean in a Santa hat. Sean HATES pictures, so for him to go along with this idea AND wear a Santa hat is monumental.

I'm not going to be showing our Christmas card on here, as I want those who are receiving it to be surprised, but I will show you a couple of pictures from the other night.

Sean told me I couldn't put these pictures on Facebook, but he never said anything about not putting them on my blog...





Boomers face in this picture makes me laugh so hard. He looks so disturbed about what is going on.

I laughed really hard and showed Chad. We both cracked up and then wondered if you'll be cropping out Boomer's penis.

We used to love Snapfish (and agree with you about those Shutterfly posts!). While the thought of 50 free cards is cool, we've been using Send Out Cards for a year now and are actually MAKING money by sending cards through them and helping others send cards through them (and making money themselves).

Send Out Cards is fully customizable and allows you to use as many pictures as you want, send out personalized cards in your own handwriting and with your own signature right from your computer and you can send gifts this way, too!

I'm happy to give you and your readers a couple of free Send Out Cards to send out as an early holiday gift to you all.

Just go to www.sendoutcards.com/gradea to send out a card or two on me.

Happy Holidays!!!
