As most of you know Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love the music and decorations and food and gifts and parties...the list goes on and on! One thing I love is giving and receiving Christmas cards. I love hanging them up and looking at all our friends and families' pictures throughout the holiday season. Photo cards are my favorite!

This year I am ordering our cards from Shutterfly. I have had so many good experiences with them in the past. I have ordered a photo book, a photo mug, a calendar, and tons of prints over the years. I've been pleased with everything I have ordered. You can imagine how excited I was to hear I could get 50 free holiday cards just by blogging about them!

If you have a blog and are interested in getting your own free cards go

And be checking your mail! You should be receiving a very cute card from the Blantons soon!

The Cheeks

Sometimes they are more than I can take! You do...sometimes you DO have to squeeze them!

And the double chin!

A Picture Post

Sweet Braden posing for me.

Carving our pumpkin with a Dremmel tool. Ha ha! Only Ben!

Our trick or treaters: Henley the freshly hatched chick, Kate the sleepy flower, Braden the Army man (aka Uncle Andy) and Gavin the farmer

Two and a half years old and his first time playing with Play Doh.

My big baby in the swing.

Oh Kate! You spoil me. Thanks for still loving to swing while I cook dinner.

Bed head!

Laurel came to play a couple weeks ago. They had a great time playing...

And eating doughnuts....

And watching Toy Story 3. Then we all took a nap! Fun times!

"Braden, write only on the paper!"

Two little buddies playing while I get ready. Note Braden's shirt half tucked in his underwear. Love these kids!

Kate's first pony tail! Poor girl only has action figures to play with!
