It's almost December

Ok, so it's one day away from December and it's time for me to think about my Christmas photo card.  I've been brewing up an idea all year for this year's theme.  I think I have a good one, but when it comes down to taking a group photo shot of seven children ages 6 months to 9 years old, the task seems impossible.  Here is my plan:  First I'm going to attempt to take a group photo.  I am mostly expecting it to be a flop.  So Plan B will include taking an individual photo of each child.  I plan to get my photo cards at Shutterfly.  I love Shutterfly.  For the past five years I've been using Shutterfly for my Christmas cards, Christmas photos, and Photo Books.  One thing I love about Shutterfly's photo cards is that they have options for cards with multiple pictures which will allow me to go with my Plan B, if needed.  Shutterfly has a few options for your Christmas needs:

  1. Folded 5 x 7  Greeting Cards.  It's kind of expensive, but if you consider that you don't have to buy Christmas cards, a good deal.
  2. Flat Photo Cards.  I use these the most because they are the most economical.  
  3. Flat Stationary Cards.  These come in 5 x 5 and 5 x 7. Remember that 5 x 5 cards require extra postage!
I can't wait to use this one someday. But instead of the names of the months, we'll have the names of our children.

Oh the choices!  So tonight is the photo shoot and I will likely be on Shutterfly late in the night editing and making the perfect Christmas Card to keep in touch with my family and friends this Christmas Season!  Yay!
