Silly Practice

In the previous post, I mentioned that Gracie wanted to practice her Christmas musical songs several times a day.  Here is one such practice session that the twins joined in on:
(I can't recall why they don't have any clothes on...)

A Merry Little Christmas Performance

Gracie had a solo in the Christmas musical at church on Sunday.  My little girl is so musical and loves singing.  She wanted to practice her songs multiple times a day. 

There were two performances, one in the morning and one at night.  All of the kids really hung in there and did a wonderful job.  I am so proud of Gracie.  She doesn't have an ounce of self-consciousness yet, and just loves to sing for Jesus. 

Here is a video of her solo song. 
The first two verses are her alone and the second two verses she does with one other boy as a duet.

There's a Wolf in the Couch

Apparently there's a wolf in my house and he's living in my couch. 
And he wants to eat all sorts of household items!

Shutterfly is Worth Postponing a Privacy Setting For!

I've got a little business to take care of before withdrawing from the world...

Did you know that as a blogger, you can get 50 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly?!  All you have to do is blog about it, including a few links to your favorite products and promoting your post on Facebook or Twitter!  You know my 50 free will get put to good use, but not until I pull every last strand of hair out getting the "perfect" photo...see last year's marathon photo session here...

So anywho, I've been perusing Shutterfly's amazing catalog of Christmas cards and I've found the cutest designs here: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards

I'm thinking this card...



...would work out well with this photo (giggle!):




It would be great if I could manage something classy like this card,

but I'm thinking with my unruly bunch, it probably would never materialize and I'd have to ship my kids off to China in frustration.  So we'll probably end up going with this sweet card:


and this photo:


'cause, you know, we're jolly like that. 
 Besides, I imagine shipping a collective 70 pounds off to China would be pretty expensive.

I'm also planning on making some calendars to give as gifts: http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars.  The wall calendars are my favorite because you can customize them in such cute ways, like put a picture of the whoever's birthday it is right in the date square of that particular month! 

The cool thing about doing this blog promotion is that now I see how easy it is to use Shutterfly and how many fun things there are to create.  I'm probably going to make the kids' birthday invitations on Shutterfly from now on.  Cutest selection EVER: http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/birthday-cards-stationery.  Check it out.

Fellow bloggers, hop on the bandwagon and get your 50 free Christmas cards too!
