It's almost the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

And that means it is time to pick out Christmas Cards!! One of my favorite things about the season is receiving Christmas cards. I also love the feeling of accomplishment when all of mine are stamped and addressed and we drive them to the post office! This year, shutterfly has an awesome assortment of cards. You can check out special offers on their site! I am already having a hard time picking out my favorite, but I love these in no particular order:
I love the black and white pic with the pretty colors...I am also a sucker for square cards!
Love this one with the multiple pic spots and the rainbow colors. We have really been into rainbow around here lately...that is another post though!
And I love this one because of the obvious SPARKLE!

I am so thankful for shutterfly sponsoring this post...and you should be too! I have an awesome giveaway! 

Giveaway prize: $50 off total order (does not include shipping & cannot be combined with any other promos) 

All you have to do is comment with your favorite Christmas tradition or memory. I will pick at random on October 27..you have 5 days! GO!

Best Weekend Eva-Part 3

To see part One from the best weekend eva, go here!
To see part Two from the best weekend eva, go here!

 
Whew! We sure know how to pack it all into one weekend, dont we?! We celebrated Preston’s 2nd Birthday Saturday night with a low key, family party. He is really into Mickey Mouse right now, so that is what we did! Because my fam is Disney obsessed, and Mickey is a popular theme, I was able to borrow some stuff to add to the decor. I combined several ideas from pinterest to make the invitations that I could hand deliver.

One of my favorite things of the night was that Kate sang Happy Birthday to Preston to every person that walked in the door! She was so excited for her little brother!IMG_4992
I made cookies and cream cupcakes from bakerella! They were delish!IMG_4995
I found these adorable cups at our Dollar General. Yes, they might be for Christmas, but I knew the kids would love having them for the holidays…and October kicks off the holiday season! The adults all had Mickey ears added to their cups.

The Roberts were a family of Minnies and Mickey a couple of year’s ago, and she had this awesome backdrop that I knew would be perfect for a Mickey photobooth!
